This is the biggie. My weight loss goal for the year - reaching my target weight of 165lbs.
Did I make it?
The good news?
I stayed exactly the same weight! Not a single pound gained from the beginning of January 2010 to the end of the year.
And I lost 1 1/2 inches off my waist.
And I worked out more this year than I have since 2004.
And I learned a LOT about my eating and snacking and nibbling habits.
My thigh measurements stayed the same as did my hip measurements.
I'm okay with that.
As I said yesterday, I didn't realize how many things I would have on my plate and how hard it would be juggle them. After all I did it all the time 'before.'
The fact that I didn't gain a ton of weight says quite a lot actually.
I used to eat to pacify myself when I was stressed. Now I try to do something physical and/or productive.
I made it to Jazzercise 4 times during Christmas week.
And I managed to make it through the holidays without gaining weight.
And I got asked to become a Jazzercise instructor. (And I had 4 more people ask me to become one in the last week.)
I think that's all doing pretty well.
In fact, I think those are pretty big reasons to celebrate all that I've managed to do during a crazy-busy year with way too many things on my plate.
Do I need to ramp it up? Yes.
Do I need to get to that target weight before I try to qualify as a Jazzercise instructor? Yes.
Do I need to watch my snacking more and still? Yes.
And I have 2011 to do it in!
How did you do this year? I'd love to hear.
