I started this post yesterday. And the horror of the school shooting happened. I ended up rewriting this in light of that.
My kids are visiting Santa right now with my husband at a holiday party they go to every year. My kids to keep their innocence another day. However, there are 28 people who don’t.
As I hugged my children last night (I have a 5 year old and an 8 year old which falls into the age range of the kids gone now so this has hit a little to close to home for me), I remembered why I started this weight loss journey. I want to be here for my kids. Being obese wasn’t going to allow me that.
That being said, I am no longer going to beat up myself for my “off” weeks. I will do my best, and sometimes that may not be enough. I amazingly had another great week last week (2.4 lbs down), and I am done beating myself up for not being “thin” enough. I am going to enjoy my new body and my weight loss.
I am currently down 1.4 lbs away from one of my goals. I am going to bask in that accomplishment. I can tell you that when I started this, I never thought I’d make it down to 150 lbs. The fact that I am this close surprises even me. And I will do it.
I will be proud that I’ve lost almost 75 lbs this year.
THIS WEEKS WEIGHT LOSS: 2.4 lbs
TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 74.6 lbs
