Another month, still movin' on down
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
Moving and getting used to carpooling has been hard to get used to, but I'm still doing pretty good. A lot of up and down this week but I'm finally settling around 221 it looks like. That's 6 lbs since I last checked in - 14 in all since I started sparking (so 44 for the year, yay!). Not bad for just over 2 months.
It's amazing how different it feels being able to shop in normal stores like Old Navy and Ross without having to find the tippy top size and pray it fits. It just sort of sad (but not really) that the cute clothes I bought won't fit by the end of the winter. I'm sure I'll get over it though ;).
I'm feeling harder, stronger, better, faster...and that's my motto lately. I have 6 lbs to go for my end of the year goal, and I'd really love to see 12 - then I'd be 20-something going into the new year. That would be a great way to start off 2008 and start bashing down to the 100's. I've been contemplating where I want to stop. 170 might be a good place to settle for a while but I wouldn't mind hitting 149 to get to the tippy top of the normal bmi. I've always been muscular and carry weight well so I look damn sexy even 10-20 lbs into the obese range for my height, but for health reasons it might be good to do. It's far off into next year so I have plenty of time to consider it. I've had silly fantasies about getting back down to 125 but I'm not sure I even want that...ok, well, sure I want that, but I'm not sure if I want that enough to put in the work for it. We shall see.
Silly me. Back to the matter at hand and getting down into the 210's this week! Hopefully the next time I chat I'll be on the low side of them!
