Autumn has arrived! Which means that life is back to normal – school’s in, my schedule is busy, and obligations abound. But I won’t use those as excuses to slack on my goals. The great thing about fall is that the weather is cooler, which means that those wonderful fall fashions will keep me motivated. Plus, crisp temperatures mean that it’s never “too hot” to workout. I’m going to relish my nightly cup of steaming hot tea as another way to keep my water intake up. I look forward to all those hearty, satisfying and wls-friendly soups, stews, and crockpot meals that I’ll create for myself. This year, the changing season will mark new milestones that I haven’t seen in 5, 7, 10+ years! Bring on fall 2013 – it’s time to reach new heights! Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend, and will give me a positive goal to begin each new week. Throughout the fall, I’ll be giving Sunday progress updates called Fabulous Fall Weigh-Ins.
Week 18 was exciting! I got a wonderful surprise from a very generous friend, started practicing for our faculty powder puff football game, and I attempted to go stand-up paddle boarding.
I weighed in this morning at 223.2, which is a loss of 1.2 pounds and a loss of 53.8 lbs since surgery! I’ve lost a total of 91.8 pounds from my highest weight!!
I’m really proud of my continued success on the scale, and when I stop to think how far I’ve come in such a short time, I really am amazed. I am so thankful that I had the surgery, especially now that school is back in session and it’s shaping up to be such a hectic year for me. I know my tool, and my success, has helped me incredibly. Now that I’ve lost 92 pounds, moving through the world is so much easier. I’m able to do so much more and it’s all so much more effortless.
Life is so good,and I feel so lucky to be able to truly live each moment taking all the small steps that reveal successes daily.
