Wow! I can hardly believe it's been almost two months since I last posted! I want to apologize to everyone for just disappearing, and to all of you whose blogs I normally read and have been neglecting lately. I know I've mentioned in my last few posts (which were already becoming infrequent) that I was having a hard time staying motivated to write, and it appears that although I thought I was getting my groove back, I was wrong.
It's creeping closer and closer to one year since I started this journey, and I keep creeping closer and closer to my next big milestone of losing 100 pounds. I'm not far from my short term goal of hitting 95 pounds down. I've found that small goals are important to keep me motivated so I set a lot of small goals in 5 pound increments. This week I made it another half pound closer. For those keeping track, I'm now down 91.3 pounds from my starting weight of 286, and I have 44.7 pounds to go to my goal weight.
I'm so happy to be able to report that I had another fantastic week, and that I've passed a huge milestone in my weight loss journey! For the last few weeks, I've been moving closer and closer to passing the halfway mark on my journey, and this week I finally did it!
Week 29, and I'm still going strong. Sometimes this surprises me, because there were a few times in the last few years that I thought I was ready to commit to losing weight and getting healthy, but it just didn't work out. Having struggled with this in the past, I know that for me, I have to really be in a specific mental space in order to make that commitment to myself, and apparently, I was finally back in that space this time around.
I was honoured to be chosen by Tracy at It's a T-Sweets Day! to supply this month's bake along recipe, my grandma's famous (in my family anyway) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
