Week 13! Holy Cow!

So Ive realized today 2 things.  1 being that I am halfway through the valentines day challenge and may actually reach the far fetched goal that I put on myself at week 3 of my journey.  The 2nd thing being that I am seriously at week 13 of my journey!!!!!  Holy cow.  That is just such a huge milestone for me!  When I was doing Body For life, a 12 week program, I had every intention of finishing BUT I ended up quitting at week 8.  So just getting to week 8 of this journey meant so much to me.  I thought about it and waited for it to come around so I could push through and make it to week 9.   Suddenly Im PAST week 12 even and sitting at week 13 without a thought about it until I looked at my spreadsheet today.  Quiting at week 8 of BFL really just blew my self esteem and self trust.  I started this in October with little faith that I would even get past week 8.  I let myself down before and failed and it really did something to me.  But here I am, sitting in my lose sweats, and realizing that I ABSOLUTELY CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!  Im amazed with how far Ive come and Im ecstatic!  Granted, I have slacked off alot….I was like the life change/strict calorie counting/workout queen natzi at the beginning of this and now that Im cut my self some slack I feel like Im not working hard enough even though Im still losing 2-4 lbs a week.  I must be doing something right.   I am struggling but Im working through it and thats what matters right now.  I have no doubt in my mind that Im going to make it to my ultimate goal of <150.  By February 14th Im going to be in the 210’s!!!!  Im going to need to buy new clothes in the next few months and Im so excited! 

I made a team challenge today on my BL team board that I was going to challenge myself to workout 5 day a week until the new year.  Im going to push myself to work out.  I need to post a few pics around my apt of lose flabby skin and that’ll get me moving!  I know how important it is and this is definitely where the commitment of my journey needs to come into play!!  

Im doing a happy dance right now!  Im feeling good and I hope yall are too!  =)

    CONGRATS<3 I know exactly what you mean. I look back now and wonder why I waited THIS long.

    I think the fact you are still losing 2-4 weeks means that you have made a lot of permanent behavior changes and it’s with you for life.

    Best of luck and HAPPY HOLIDAYS~
