Mini goal met!

If you look over on the right sidebar you’ll see a section titled Weight Loss Goals. See that mini goal? It says 185. I have had this goal for several years now. When I first put it up there in probably 2010 or early 2011, I was only a few pounds away from that weight (hence the “mini”) and thought it would be no big deal to get there. And then all hell broke lose and my weight climbed up the scale just to spite me and laugh in my face at my “easily attainable goal”. I met that goal again briefly in August of 2012 – nearly 2 1/2 years ago – for a hot minute, then came the slow steady climb back up again.

Since then I’ve spent most of my time hovering in the high 190s. Not a lovely place to be for someone who’s only 5’3 1/2″ tall.

But after lots of coaching from Amanda and shaking my booty in Zumba, guess who hit that goal again today?!?


Mini goal complete!

Mini goal complete!

Look at how gently my weight loss line slopes. Like a rolling hill in a meadow. No cliff-hanging drop-offs here!!

So yeah, I’m a happy camper. My highest weight was on December 27, 2013 when I weighed in at 198.9. That’s the closest to 200 pounds I’ve ever been (pregnancy INCLUDED). Since then, I’ve lost 13.6 pounds, which isn’t fast and fancy, but heck, I don’t care. I’m just thrilled to be making progress even if it is at a turtle’s pace, because after all, Slow and Steady wins the race, amiright?! 🙂

    “Look at how gently my weight loss line slopes. Like a rolling hill in a meadow.” You have such a way with words! And yes, being 13.6 pounds less than you were a year ago is a huge accomplishment! All those little changing habits are adding up.

    Congrats on the healthy weight loss! Don’t feel bad about the weight coming off slowly back in
    1998-1999 it took me two years to lose 40 pounds but they have stayed off for good:) So yes
    slow and steady weight loss does win the race in my book.
