OMG !!

I cannot believe that it has been two years since I last posted on my blog.

Life has been pretty crazy.  I am going to try to catch you all up over a few posts.

To start with I have continued with Weight Watchers and I have lost almost 120 pounds since I walked back into a meeting room in Calgary in November of 2012.

Not a quick weight loss my any means, but I am continuing to lose and to keep it off. 

Writing this all down made me realize that I am getting so close to my goal. 

I am so proud of all that I have accomplished.

Well that was a bad couple of weeks at the end of June.  I think it had to do with my sodium intake and still balancing things out from the trip to Niagara.  

No worries - I really am back on track.  I am sure that July will show better results. 

I really want to hit my personal goal of losing 100 pounds by my birthday in October.  I believe that this is a reasonable goal.  I just have to stick to the program by eating within my smart points allowance and exercising more.  I can do this.

May was not really about losing weight.  My brother's wedding was in Niagara Falls on May 21.  My parents and I, as well as my youngest brother, left for Niagara on May 18.So I missed the WW meeting on May 21.  I also enjoyed myself while I was there and did not worry about points.  We did do a lot of walking to balance out some of that overeating.

We got back on May 24, but I missed a second meeting because I had to drive my parents to the airport.

Now that I am home, everything can get back on track.  Eating right and exercising.

So I reached my goal of hitting 85 pounds down by April 16 (accomplished on April 9).  After that I actually went up a little, but that is ok.

April was pretty crazy with my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's bachelorette party on April 16.  It was a lot of fun.  We went out to Canmore/Banff for the weekend.  The weather was beautiful.

It feels good to be making progress.  I reached 80lbs down with WW this month.  I am also over 100 pounds down since my highest weight back in 2005.

I am almost hitting my goal of losing a pound a week.  The new WW program is working for me, especially when I actually track everything.

My WW meeting leader went to Hawaii for about a month.  Before she left, she set a goal with me to reach 85lbs down by the time she gets back (on April 16).  This has kept me focused over the past few weeks.

Wow.  I am so close to being 80 pounds down on this WW journey.

I became a YMCA member in mid February.  Danielle and I now go to Aquasize class at least once a week (really need to make sure that is 2-3 times, but it is a start).

The weather has been great and I can now get back to walking outside after dinner.

All great moves towards losing more weight in 2016.

It has been crazy over the past couple of months.  First I left for Victoria to spend the holidays with my parents and siblings on Dec 23.  We got back home late on Jan 3.  Then on Jan 6 my grandmother of almost 92 years passed away.  Her funeral was Jan 16 in Medicine Hat where she was born and raised and lived until 2010.

Somehow throughout all the holiday treats, road trip snacks, and funeral luncheon (plus grief) - I didn't gain any weight.

In fact I accomplished my 75 pound weight loss goal on Saturday at my WW meeting !!

I have made some good changes with the new program.  I am really focused on not adding extra sugar and saturated fat to my diet (as in my food intake).

It would be great to be able to lose about 10 pounds before my brother's wedding in May, maybe even 15 pounds.

I have now lost more weight than I have to lose.  So I am on the second half of this particular weight loss journey.  With the new program, I can see myself losing more weight this year than the last.

2016 is going to be awesome !!
