Yes, it HAS been a while… long enough that, not only has life changed a lot, but yes, I’ve gain a few pounds back. Since my lowest weight, just before the holidays, I gained back almost 16 pounds. It’s not totally unexpected, but it still stings a bit. Even when you know it’s coming, I ate the food, I slacked on the workouts and I surely did my fair share of snacking… but to get on a scale again and see the damage done in the numbers is pretty solid motivation.
The good news is, I’m still well over 40 pounds down from where I started and in the last 2 days getting back into working out and eating right has been a bit painful, but well worth it. I knock off 1.5 of those “damage pounds” in the first day.
I added another little chart to my current progress page also that shows my lowest weight, my current weight, the difference between the two and the distance to my goal, check it out:
The new year has started, the mess of the holidays is over and there’s some amazing new motivation in my life to help me keep on track. So, here I go… wish me luck!!
