Another two weeks, and here I am again, still trying to get back on a regular schedule, and not quite there…but getting a little closer.
My crafty mojo took a hike a few months ago, and I’ve been struggling, trying to get it back. There are so many things I want to do, and I still can’t seem to find the motivation to do any of them. Or I just feel so overwhelmed because there are so many things I want to do that I end up not doing any of them. This past week or so has been the first time in a long time that I’ve actually done a bit of crafting. I started on a blanket for my cousin’s dog, and I pulled out my sewing machine. I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve been making, and hoping that I can continue to make some progress.
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.
Wow, I’m fast approaching a whole year since I started Weight Watchers! In fact I think I’ll be on my cruise when it happens! I can’t believe how far I’ve managed to come since last February. I’ve been lucky so far, that I haven’t had any major setbacks. I knew it would happen sooner or later, especially now that I’m getting closer to my goal, and it finally has.
