Going into the end of the year I had pretty much came to the conclusion that my weight-loss for the year was about hit the end. Knowing Thanksgiving and Christmas was around the corner I figured I’d just do my best to hang on to what I have done, but not expecting much more loss. Wow, I was wrong.
Since November 15th (a good, arbitrary date before Thanksgiving) I’m down 7.6lbs. That is just about 2lbs a week…for this stage of the journey that is amazing. I’m now 18lbs away from my ultimate goal, and only 6 away from my next major goal (after which I get to treat myself to an ice cold Pepsi [which I haven't had in over 18 months] and a Snickers bar).
I’m hoping to finish out the year strong now. I’ve again settled with the mentality that I probably won’t go down much, and if that is the case I’m perfectly happy where I am now to end the year… I am down 51.4lbs since January 1st, 122 since May of 2010, and am almost at my goal.
I’ll post again soon, worst case is an end of the year recap post… hopefully then I’ll be able to say I was wrong about not losing any more this year.
