We interrupt your regularly-scheduled Wednesday Workout Update with this breaking news: Today marks the two year anniversary of my hitting the 100 pound weight loss milestone.
One HUNDRED pounds.
And I haven't gained it all back! Not even close!! You better believe I'm celebrating!!!
Let's face it, if everyone just lost weight and kept it off, there would be a lot less discussion (and profit made) on dieting. But the truth of it is that losing weight is only the beginning. Keeping it off? That's a whole 'nother story. And while this year has been a challenging one for me, what with losing my favorite form of exercise to an injury, and stress eating over my mother's shocking cancer diagnosis (she just went through her third set of tests since her surgery and is doing fantastic, I'm happy to report!), I still fit into most of my "new" clothes, with the exception of some pants. Yeah, things were looser a year ago, but hey - all things considered, this is pretty darn good. And with the advent of running getting closer and closer, it can only get better. Today, I'm celebrating the fact that I still have a normal-sized body...two years and counting!
