It's official! Between Turkey Day and New Years, the season where everyone expects to gain 10 pounds, I lost 7.2. Does that put me 17 pounds ahead?
I've been doing this for 5-1/2 months now. I got started by eating frozen diet meals and now I'm cooking! I'm enjoying exercising, and miss it when I can't do something physically active. Almost everything in my closet is too big, including shoes. My rings are falling off my fingers. I put some tape on my wedding ring, but it's still flopping around.
And now it's a new year with new goals! For the first time in my life I made it through the holidays without derailing my diet! I think I can reasonably expect to lose between 50 and 75 pounds this year, getting me that much closer to my goal!
But first, I have to take care of today, and then tomorrow, and then the day after that. His mercies are new each morning!
Happy New Year!
