10% Down, TGIF

I'll be honest I didn't expect to get this far, I believed I had everything it took to reach my goals. Then again, I've had it all along so what makes this different?

It could be my upcoming wedding, it could be my family, maybe my hubby to be finally said the right motivating words, maybe I was afraid of the health related problems that come from obesity,or maybe just maybe I realized that life is too short and there's no need of me shortening it any further by something I can control.

Whatever it is I'm glad it finally kicked in. 10%, a whole 35lbs. Gone. I still have a ways to go, but I know this time I'll make it, I haven't been in the 320 range in over a year and to be nearly out of it is nothing short of amazing to me. I know if I stay on course hitting 299 or even lower by New Years is possible, because I will make it happen. Not going to get caught in the holiday trap this year, after all its only THREE days, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. I'll celebrate ON those days but all the parties and gatherings in between, its up to me to make the right decisions.

My diet is being modified (Yes, again) low carb is what works for me and I love it. No headaches, no crankiness, and its giving me the results I need to stay with it, and though I know my loss will slow, I'm taking everything my body wants to drop now. Atkins though great is a bit too strict and honestly I'm eating way to much fat just because its allowed, so South Beach is a healthier option so I can be sure to get in enough variety and vegetables. Lol yes I want my veggies.

So I'll still track but add in some of the SoBe healthier foods like beans, more veggies,soymilk, and a leaner variety of meat. Also my workouts are stepping up so I need a few more carbs to be able to function.

Thats all for now, have a grrrrrreat! Friday.
