It’s been almost a year since I started this journal and have managed to lose 43.8lbs to date. I am currently weighing in at 219.0 on a regular basis and have been keeping the weight off.
I’ve had a very eventful and industrious year thus far and imagine the Christmas season will bring even more surprises before 2012 ends with a flurry.
When I first started this journal I had no idea if I would succeed or even be able to continue to write as life has a tendancy to interfere with even the best of intentions. However, much to my surprise, I’m still journaling and still losing weight! I think that being able to write down how I have felt and documenting the influences in my life has helped me to stay on track. Reflecting on what triggers my eating binges and then changing what causes me to stumble has had a very large impact on my weightloss success this year.
As 2013 approaches, another birthday comes with it. (January 3rd – I will be 45yrs old) I anticipate a productive and another successful year in weightloss and more self-discovery.
My goal for 2013 is to lose the rest of the weight to reach my goal of 160lbs for the summer. If I don’t manage to obtain this goal in the expected time frame, I won’t fret, but know I will continue to work hard to lose the desired weight until I achieve goal weight hopefully before 2014 rolls around.
