I hope 2013, for you, will be as positively tremendous and amazing as it can be.
Now for the final weigh-in for 2012 and for the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge!
(Ermagerd. You know I’m jumping right to that. I have no patience).
Who wants to know how I did? Oh me! Me! I am sitting here, wiggling in my seat and throwing my hand in the air like Richard Simmons Sweatin’ to the Oldies.
I am so so excited to report that since August 31, 2012 until December 31, 2012, I have lost: 66 pounds!
Total for all of our friends so far in this Mid-Year Resolution Challenge: 1551.53 pounds!
I am so stinking excited. Yeah, while I set out thinking it’d be all peachy keen to lose 100 pounds between August 31 and December 31, I still made it 2/3 of the way there. That, my friends, is progress. And, speaking of progress, I still plan to behave, especially since I need to weigh in next week, too! I still attend TOPS every week and am excited to continue to report how I’m doing as we move forward into the new year.
Tonight we’re having friends over for New Year’s Eve. That means pizza, chips, dip and pies! I am going to maybe take a bite here or there of something I really want to taste, but knowing what gluten does to me means I don’t want to do that to myself. That, and I ate so much of the Taco Star nachos that I am stuffed. I feel like I am going to explode–but in a good way. If that’s possible.
For all of us, tonight is about celebrating our journeys and looking forward to the new year.
No longer am I thinking about what I wish I had done.
Tomorrow I am going to wake up happy and renewed.
Remember to make memories tonight, and celebrate you.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top.

I ate this:
Breakfast: Nothing. I am trying to catch up on NYE!
Lunch: Taco Star Nachos with the corn chips (wew hew)
Exercise: I am running around cleaning the house for company tonight.
Notes: I was craving so many foods yesterday, but I’m glad that even though it was so hard I didn’t cave! I would have hurt my weight loss. The Whooshie Fairy is always so kind to all of the good girls and boys of the world. She’s like the Great Pumpkin, only with slimmer ankles.
What I learned:
I am so excited, for the first time in years, about New Year’s Day!
Because of my mental shifts regarding health and weight loss (it’s about health and not just using diet as a crash course in melting fat), and because I took action on August 31, I have made so much progress in so many ways.
No matter what you learn in the new year, make every moment a learning moment. Have no regrets and do you. You are worth the struggles, even when they’re annoying and you just almost don’t care anymore.
I look forward to continuing this journey with you tomorrow morning.
It’s another day to be fabulous, everyone! In other words, it’s another day to be you.
