Update on my weight loss journey

I just realized I hadn't posted anything about my diet/exercise life in a long time. It hasn't been forgotten, I've just become more normal about it.

I hit 90 pounds down, and I gained about three of that back over Thanksgiving. I am honestly not sure where I'm at now, because I tried to chill about my obsessive scale checking and just enjoy the holidays. I plan on weighing myself on New Years Day.

I rejoined Weight Watchers, not really because of the three pound gain, but just to give myself accountability for 2013. Since it's my second time on it, I feel really awesome about that decision. Also, it was awesome putting in a MUCH smaller "pounds loss" goal this time, since I got rid of that original 90.

My workouts have been AMAZING lately! I have learned so much about strength training from my trainer, so I incorporate that into my workouts every day. I am also training for a 10K now - I'm not sure if I will ever even become a "race" runner, but I love it. I am officially committed to my first race, 8K with my aunt in March. However, I will not be trying to beat anyone; I will just be trying to run the whole thing without dropping dead.

All in all, I'm feeling pretty wonderful about everything right now. I'm not crazy - I still eat, and drink, and have fun. Just last night Missy and I went to dinner and I got a big ol' beefy cheeseburger. In 2013 I'd like to drop some more weight (or maybe just inches?) but I am pretty damn content with myself right now. And that may be conceited - but I don't care!
