Taking a look back

Another year has come and gone, and looking back, this has been my most successful dieting year ever. I am at nearly 100 posts...who would've thought I'd have 100 things to say about this. And I realize that I'm pretty boring so my readership has really declined....but I'm going to promise that 2009 will bring more interesting things from me...I have actually spent the last year paying attention to what I'm eating - that has never happened...I usually had a bad day, week, month and just gave in. And while I've still had some rough moments, I have been consciencious the whole year. I've also been more physically active. I never would've thought I'd try to ride my bike 240 miles, nor would I have guessed I'd join a gym...but I have and even though I don't enjoy it, it's become a part of my life. And my life continues to be busy as usual. Things with my husband are good, we're on track to meet some of our goals. Our two biggest being buying a house and I need a new car...our friends remain strong...please have my friend's Heather and Stetson in your thoughts....they need all the love they can get...professionally, I recently got the job offer of a lifetime and while I'm pretty sure I'm not going to take it, it means so much to me to be offered. I'm getting ready to take my LCSW test soon, the highest license a social worker can havve so that's been stressful and expensive and I'm still coaching gymnastics, despite all the difficulties the past year has brought. I'm often very introspective and this year has been an eye opener....I am not the person I always want to be and most people don't often see the true me. But next year promses to be a good year as well. I lost 20 pouns this year and hopefully some inches as well, though the official measurements won't be in until later this week. I have a plan for at least January and I'm not giving up. Please say hi if you're still reading this...I miss comments and I promise to leave some for you as well!

Just wondering if anyone saw the diet in Woman's World where you eat mostly frozen meals like Lean Cuisine and Smart Ones and then supplement that with some fruits and veggies....I think I'd really like to try that for a month and see if I can jog this weight loss...just floating through the end of the year...

Doing better

My dad is doing better...that's great news. I'm doing good on the diet front...lost another pound last week. I'm 4 pounds away from my most recent low....looking to finish the year out on a strong note!! My sister and I tied for our diet challenge...we were weak, only formally working out 10 times during the month. But this month, since Monday, I've been to the gym every day except yesterday. The kicker is that my weight's up 3 pounds....makes me not want to go to the gym anymore...but eventually, my body will catch on and start losing again...I feel like I'm starting to look better at here's to exercising my butt off for the month of Dec, losing those 4 pounds and gearing up for another great year of weight loss!
