Weigh-In: My Current State

After a 5-pound gain over Christmas week I started off January 1, 2016 at…
197.5 lbs. 

Today’s weight:  194.0
Loss/Gain:  -3.5 lbs.
Because I’m all about being honest about my health journey I also took new “before” pictures.  Actually, as my daughter was taking them I told her, “No, not ‘before’ pictures, but ‘current’ pictures.  This is a life long journey and these photos simply represent where I’m at right now.” 
She smiled, because she is good like that.  🙂 
So, now you know.  
I was okay with the added weight, not caring because of all else that happened last year, until I had to confess where I was at.  But I am not letting it be more than motivation of what needs to happen.  
I am in a much better place mentally to deal with my weight and I know it will come off.  It’s one of those things I know you — my observers, friends and general audience — will just have to wait and see, because I’ve said it before.
But let me tell you, this “knowing” I feel is not the exuberant, “Yea!  I’m ready! Let’s do this!! I’m gonna be one fit mama at graduation!!”
No, it’s more like a calmer, “Yes.  I have a plan and I am going to take it one day at a time.”  
I feel I will reach the end goal by simply following my plans each day and not worrying about the end.
Thanks for joining me for more chapters in my new ending in life.  As always…I will never give up. 
And if you’re wondering what my plans are you can read all about them here:

    Taking and posting before pictures is a great idea! It really helps keep you motivated! I need to do this as well 🙂

    Yea, I get the not exuberant feelings. Sometimes it is just a sigh like “I know, I know. Let's just do it”.
