There's a party here at my blog tonight! I'm happy dancing that I successfully completed the crazy challenge known as NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. The challenge : to post a blog entry for all 30 days in November. With this final post for November I've successfully met that challenge! Yay me! I'm sure some blog entries were worth reading and a few were just filling in space, but I did it! Also a shout out to my friends Christin and Bonnie for joining me and completing the challenge! Way to go! Way to go to everyone who attempted NaBloPoMo this year, and to those who completed it, props to you! See you same time, same place in 2012!!!
I wasn't sure how I did this week when I went to step on the scale, since I came of maintenance and went back to loosing and paying I've not touched my home scale not checked up on how I'm doing. The only time I know how I'm doing is when I step on that scale in front of my WW leader. I've also not been obsessing over my number on the scale, but if I lost and what that loss (or gain was). Its kinda nice ignoring that number (the bigger picture I suppose) and saying oh cool, I lost a pound this week. I and my leader were surprised that I lost 1.5 lbs this week! I had only just weighed in this past Saturday so it hadn't been a full week, and it was a evening not a morning weigh in. I can proudly report I'm now down 3.5 lbs out of the 10 I need to loose! Getting pretty close to that 5lb mark, the half way point!
There's two things I've been dying to do and I've decided they're going to be rewards for hitting the half way point and the 10lb mark. When I hit the 5lb mark I'm going to get my eyebrows waxed... lets just say I've got a bit of a jungle going on up there above my eyes! Its something I usually keep on top of every 6 weeks or so but I let a lot of things go when my Mum was in hospital in September. Second, I'm dying for a haircut! I haven't had it cut since the beginning of February. Right now its long, flat and lifeless, its just dragging me and my face down! Hopefully this is the motivation I need to see this thing through!
I thought I might share these two pictures with you, especially for those of you who weren't familiar with the "old" me :
At the Mexico/Arizona border March 2007, pushing over 200 lbs
Same place, same time of year but in March 2011 at my lowest 142 lbs
