The "Cursed Number"

Hello all! Life has been going well for me. I am frustrated with my scale and there is this one certain number that has given me problems in the past. I hover around that number for weeks before I am able to break through it. This has happened to me in the past with this exact same number. I am determined to break through before next week. I did lose one pound last week so I am getting closer to pushing past that dreaded number that I hope to never see again on the scale!

I have been taking longer walks. So long in fact that I have to leave the dog at home because she doesn't like to walk that far. She's kind of a princess you know! :-) It has been a really great time for me to put on my iPod and get lost in my thoughts and music. I find myself thinking a lot about happiness and what that looks like to me. I can honestly say I don't know. I am happy for the most part but I feel like something is missing. I have no idea what it is but I can say that whatever it is, I long for it - if that makes any sense at all.

I do love my new job and already feel so comfortable in the office and with my co-workers. That is a great feeling! I had a few requests for an updated picture of me, so here is one from the last weekend in July (with one of my very best friends, Jamie).
I still have a long way to go but I am so much farther than I was just a year ago! I am actually 65 pounds lighter than I was in June of 2010. I hope to do much better in the next year and kick it into higher gear but I will celebrate every victory, every pound and every moment in my life that I feel like I am living! Because I no longer want to watch my life pass me by, I now want to be an active participant!

Thanks for sticking with me! It means so much to have your love and support!!

  1. Wow! 65 pounds is huge, way to go! I need to embark on this journey too, but am nervous. I have too many excuses. Maybe I'll check out weight watchers too.
