WOW! Another 3 years has passed, I'm still lurking! So much has happened in the last few years, the one thing that has remained constant is my size. Although my weight has fluctuated and I am currently at 175, I still maintain a size 10. I thank God for giving me the constancy of exercising, which has been the only thing that has kept me from totally ballooning! So, let the novel begin, hope you have about an hour….LOL!!! Honestly, I can't remember much of 2011, that year came and went so quickly. In 2012, the flood gates opened, I did my first 60 mile bike ride, completed my first half marathon and did several other runs around the city. I am HAPPY to report that I finally graduated from Kennesaw State University in December 2012, heck it only took me 12 years, but I did it and that's what counts! For graduation my husband sent me on a girl's trip to Punta Cana! It was nice to go out of the country with my girlfriends and not be the largest one, heck I was one of the smallest!
Now that I have managed to accomplish several of my goals, I am a mission to complete one goal I have not managed to meet. When I decided to have weight loss surgery, my ideal weight was 150 pounds. If I could get to 150 pounds, I feel like my mission for weight loss will be complete. To get to 150 pounds and maintain it! So, I have once again set out on my quest to lose the last 25 pounds once and for all. My gift for maintaining 150 pounds for 6 months will be plastic surgery! I really want to get a full tummy tuck and my inner thighs done. So, I'm off to the races. I am doing things differently this time. I am actually counting calories and keeping a food journal, yeah I know, the basics, but I have never done it consistently. This is going to be the hardest thing for me, because I have never kept track of what was going in my mouth. I figured I can eat whatever in moderation, as long as I work it off. That has worked for me, but it hasn't helped me to reach my goal weight. It is my plan to lose 5 pounds a month the slow and steady weight loss. Those pounds rarely find a way to come back. Exercising and working out are my lifestyle, so there is no need to factor that into the equation.
I am also job hunting and it’s driving me crazy. It’s funny that all the people that told me they would help me when I graduated have sudden developed selective amnesia! At any rate, I am aggressively looking for another position, so if you’re in the GA area and you have hiring power, please contact me! I have pretty much covered everything. I will make it my monthly duty to keep you all posted on my #Goal150! Until my next update, as always, until next time, be safe, love yourself and keep smiling. Most of all keep LOSING!!!
