I have been reading everyone's blog and the early Christmas presents they have received. How exciting!
Well for me....I had set a personal goal I was hoping to reach by the end of the year. I wanted to get down to 235 by then. I was super sceptical on my weight loss this week because I had to cancel 2 of my swimming appointments and really haven't done much of anything else beside holiday preparation.
Low and behold when I stepped on the scale this morning, what to my wondering eyes should appear...No not a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer...but the scale read 235.0!!! Down 2.2 lbs from last week!!
So here are my totals:
39.8 lbs down since 8/22/12!
25.2 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
Now to maintain through the New Year with all the food that will be around this week. I am totally loving the lifestyle changes I have chosen to make! I might give my scale a New Year's smooch! We are developing a great relationship!
Tonight we have Chicken Parmesan and pasta for dinner and in keeping with our family traditions, the girls each get to open one present from under the tree!
I haven't always liked the holidays. I have always kind of dreaded them. Especially Christmas....But this year seems different. I am enjoying things....and enjoying watching my girls grow and having a great time with them. I feel full...I feel complete...for the first time in as long as I can remember.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. May your home be filled with laughter and love this holiday season.
