Thanks ladies!
I really have zero excuses to not work whole-heartedly on getting this weight off.. barring anything catostrophic happening *knocks on wood*... the plan is to work my plan and focus on exercise and just getting/keeping my home in order like it was before I became a student.

DD today. First real one in a few weeks. I am STARVING already.

Scale: 230.0

Just today, DH came home for lunch and all the time it's been automatic that I just eat lunch when he does... well who the heck says???????? He kept asking me if I wanted something and I kept rooting around in the kitchen and I finally just stopped and said yanno what, I'm not hungry. What a concept!

Dani, it is actually a good sign that you were super hungry -- your body is burning fat! Did you see Social Distortion in Vegas? I have always wanted to see them live. The lead singer is so handsome!

Thanks, but seriously...I totally blew it yesterday... Hershey kisses

So yesterday ended up *kinda* like a medium-ish day instead of a strict DD... I think I hit around 800-900 calories instead of the 500 I was aiming for. UD today. Woke up starving. The plan is to stick with calories for today...all of them so tomorrow's DD can be a good one.

No weigh-in today.

Hi! Turmoil is always around whenever there's a move involved! Hang in there and pretty soon this will all be but a distant memory!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DD today. Good thing. I went to bed feeling veeerrrrrrrrryyyy full.

Scale: 231.0

Hoping to eek out a small loss for the month.....possibility is that I'll weigh what I did on the 1st. I guess I'm ok with that all things considered.

Had a really random, funny thought as I was driving DD to work.. I noticed my sunglasses sliding off my nose and realized that I've been pushing them up alot the last few weeks or so.. this led to the contemplation of whether my head is shrinking? Is that even possible? Then I wondered if it's just my face that's thinned out, but would that cause my sunglasses to slide when the earpieces around my head are what would cause them to either feel tight or loose? Thinking of all this sent me into a fit of giggles and I'm sure the people driving around me thought I was completely nutso. Still, the idea made me feel good either way and thinking that no matter, something *is* changing.

Weather is dreary and cool.. just the way I like it! I think I'm gonna take my tree down today...poor thing is drooping and turning a lighter shade of green..it's been warm'ish here all things considered.. I can't believe the holiday's are all over, it went so fast!

Well I'm glad I could oblige!!!
I think I answered my own question tho...my face has gone down.. ALOT. My DD16 was shocked when I put these together and then her and DH proceeded to just stare at me for hours afterwards..



The first pic is May of this year...even with my head kinda tilted back I still had some double-chin-action.. The 2nd pic was a couple weeks ago..

Drive by this morning! But I will be back for personals! Going shopping this morning...I *think* I may be getting a new scale..I haven't decided yet..I'm terrified of it telling me I weigh more than what mine says now! Getting DD16 some new workout shoes and workout wear.. SO proud of that girl..she managed to keep some workouts into her busy busy schedule all year long..it hasn't been drastic changes, cause for starters she had no weight to really lose..just wanted to feel better. She amazes me. All with a 4.0 gpa and working 15 hrs a week + volunteer work and clubs.

Ladies, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your kind words I sat and looked at that picture all afternoon yesterday just amazed that there *is* change happening.. I DO look better! I love that my husband was so enchanted with this yesterday..he just kept looking at me and smiling and saying how proud he was of me..

FANTASTIC DD yesterday! I was so proud of myself by the end of the day.. wasn't my lowest day definitely..seeing as before the holidays I'd gotten into a pretty much fasted state on every DD and felt amazing, but I STILL did great.. finished the day at 577 calories and went to bed feeling amazing..and woke up energized and satisfied. I eeked out a small loss for the month.. My only real wish was to get into the 20's by the end of the year and I did it..

88 lbs to get to my goal of 140. Not entirely sure if I won't go lower than that but for now, that's my goal. The idea that I could very well see that number by the end of 2013 is motivating and something I kinda chalked up to probably not ever achieving. I think somewhere deep down I kinda resolved that I would just stay fat forever and that this is how I was supposed to be Well, there's a BIG difference between "accepting yourself" and all that entails, like loving yourself regardless, embracing all the great qualities you have, acknowledging that you are a human who deserves respect and dignity just like any thin person...allll of that I have learned this past year while I was struggling and flailing around trying to lose.. it happened when I wasn't looking for the most part and I could not be happier. I also learned that just because I accept my body, embrace it even, while it doesn't mean I am not *happy* per se, it does mean that I know I need to get healthy and that I DO want to look better. I want my outside to reflect how I feel on the inside. And this is the year that I do it. For the first time in a reeeaaalllllllllyyy long time I am excited and very motivated to see it through.

Here's my month...it's ugly but it's mine. January will be even better!

I realized yesterday *just* how old my scale was.. Crazy enough that I went out and got a new one Well..let me tell you, I was NOT happy to find out that it weighed me a little over 8 lbs heavier!

I dunno if I'm more irked by seeing a 30's number again or the realization in that I was actually bigger than I thought to begin with. Meh! Also, there is the thought that now I am *that* much farther away from Onederland, as well as, having more weight to lose, period. Double meh! It is what it is and in the grand scheme of things, 8 more pounds means maybe an additional month or two towards reaching goal.. I'll be crossing my fingers big time now that I make it by the end of the year!

With that said, here's my goal for Jan.

January Goal: 229
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jan1.... 235.4


DD today. I was never so happy! Went to dinner last night...OMG..ate WAY too much. The good girl in me tho only had 1 beer. I didn't even have popcorn last night I was soooo full. Saw Jack Reacher. Loved it. Pretty quiet evening by our standards considering all the shenanigans we were up to a couple weeks ago in Vegas!

Morning Danielle! Sorry about the stupid new scale. It's good to have a new one though. It will likely be more reliable and consistent on your downward trend towards 140 this year!!! You can definitely do it.

My goal is the same - 80 pounds this year. It's slightly less than 7 per month.
