I am so excited to report that I will be going into Thanksgiving with an extra dose of motivation! Today I weighed in DOWN another 1.2 pounds! That meant a couple of milestones for me, first it put me exactly at my 5th grade weight!!! The other milestone was 60.4 lbs lost since going back to WW after having James! My ticker over there to the right is based on my pre-pregnancy weight before I had either of the kids so that number is getting pretty exciting for me too! I can't wait to go home for Thanksgiving and see some relatives that haven't seen me in at least 6 months...some haven't seen me since last Christmas! I am so excited and hoping that they will notice all of the weight that I have lost.
I have a plan for Thanksgiving. First, I plan to get in some workouts. Second, I plan to make myself enjoy all of the family more than putting my focus on the food. We are planning for 27 people for our Thanksgiving dinner, but that number could easily grow if any of the teenagers or college students bring boy/girl friends with them this year or if more family decides to show up. I am excited to see everyone and I'm sure it will be a challenge to keep up with James in that crowd so that should keep me from 'grazing' around the buffet table. Third, I plan to wear my new size 10 dress pants to remind myself that there isn't any "growing" room in them... no stretching clothes this year! Oh and my mom is making some very WW friendly dishes for me. Everything from roasted veggies to my favorite WW pumpkin pie with fat free whipped cream! Can you tell how excited I am!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! If I don't post much this week it will be because I am busy being THANKFUL for this time I have with family that we don't get to see very often!
