Last Day of the Year

Sometimes when I start to get comfortable and think that I am always in control of my life, God does something to show me that he really is in control! Sometimes these moments are tragic; sometimes these moments are glorious; sometimes these moments are small; but sometimes these moments are grand.

Today I had one of those moments, thought I would call this one a small moment in my life, it could prove to be grand later on in my life. But lately, as you may know, if you've been reading, I blog a lot about my journey with Weight Watchers... Well today, the LAST day of the year- I AM A LIFETIME MEMBER!!!!! I had reached my goal weight 6 weeks ago, and I have maintained and gone below my goal weight in the 6 weeks to reach lifetime- ON THE LAST DAY OF 2009!

You know those weeks where I gained, or the weeks that I didn't lose as much as I wanted too, or the weeks I didn't work out as hard as I should have... it all happened the way it did, so I would become a lifetime member on the last day of the year! So I am going into the New Decade, prepared, encouraged and supported!

Its a great day for me. These last 14 weeks have been great weeks for me, school is great and I have made myself a priority, it feels good!

I wish you all a Happy Happy New Year! And I pray that you are all blessed and encouraged for the new year. I love you all! xoxo


New Year Goal

So yesterday I was thinking about New Year Resolutions, most people want to try to lose weight, or save money or different things like that. I have already started the weight lose journey but I want to challenge myself this year. So I was thinking about having an ultimate goal so I had something to go for. This is my idea: That I will run a half marathon or a marathon at the end of next year, but to get myself prepared I will have a goal of running a # of mile directly related to the # month of the year. So in April I will run 4 miles straight, because its the 4th month. That means by next December I should be able to run 12 miles "straight" and I think the pf changs half marathon is 13 miles... I dont know, I hope this is something I could do, It seems like it would be a good goal and practice because it is gradual. I really hope I can keep up with it! But that is my first idea for this year, have you thought of any new years goals for yourself??


Lucky Number 7

Well, I try to be better at this, but I fail. Not that many of you are waiting anxiously to hear from me, but still. I should be more committed to this than I am. But its ok, life happens. Can't get down about intentions, sometimes they just don't work out!

But today I am here to talk about number 7! Today is the 7th so it seemed fitting! I don't believe in superstitions or anything like that. But the number 7 has been around lately and I think its funny!

The first 7, would be 17! That is how many pounds I have lost since joining weight watchers, which I have been doing for almost 77 days (technically, 75 today)! ;) It might not seem like a lot, but its huge! I feel so much better, and happier! I can move easier (not that I really had a problem moving but, you know what I mean).

In the last 7 weeks, I have lost 7 inches collectively! 2 in my hips, 2 in my thighs, 2 in my waist and 1 in my arms! =D Sometimes its really hard to keep going because you aren't seeing the results. I see my results. None of my clothes fit me right, jeans that were always tight, are now always baggy! Shirts that were once too tight because I bought them for "when I lost weight", are now too big! Its going to be somewhat expensive getting my new wardrobe but it will be one thing at a time, definitely no complaints!

That is how the number 7 has been following me around lately, but its ok!

One thing I do want to get out there, just because its kind of nice to be completely honest and open: I still struggle! I find myself, being just plain lazy during the weekends. If I didn't have someone else to weigh in to on thursdays it could be bad. I need to find my will power and control. Its just sometimes its hard! Last weekend was Joey's birthday so there was the celebration with his family, his friends, my family and just us. Then there was the day of four wheeling with joey, my brother in law and co-worker that ended with pizza with the family. Its just like, once the cycle starts its going. I need to find my happy medium, I hope I can do it. And until I can, I will go to a meeting every weeks so I can stay within my goal! I am only 3 weeks away from being a Lifetime member, and hopefully I will blog before that time!


Merry Christmas! I just love this time of year, I want to start enjoying it more!
