Stable Mable

Greetings my fellow HCG losers! How's the new year treating you?

Long time, no post but I've been busy. I've done okay this p3 but once again I've stabilized a few pounds higher than I would like. My busy work schedule has made strict protocol a little hard and I haven't been able to exercise as much as I would like. Hopefully that will change in the next few weeks.

I still can't believe that I am just one round away from reaching Onederland! Already I'm much happier with my size. It's nice being able to buy clothes in a size that doesn't require me to shop in a specialty store or pay a couple of extra bucks for the plus sizes. I still have a ways to go, especially with my tummy, but it's been a great journey so far!

I'm turning 34 in May, and by then I will be under 200 pounds. I honestly don't know how long it's been since I've been under 200 pounds. I briefly flirted with size 16 when I was about 23 or 24 but I'm not sure what my weight was at that age. Right now I'm wearing 18 pants, although I can fit into at least one size 16 jean and the new pajama bottoms that I bought are simply large, no extra needed. :)

I have no doubt this next round will be a bit hard for me, I was a size 18 for years and years, so I'm going to be busting through many an old weight point. And that's fine, I'm ready to do what it takes to see that scale go down and down. I have so much support, from my Hubs, from my friends, and from all of you here and on facebook that I'm not worried about getting off track.

Thanks for helping me be honest, and for keeping me honest. Weight loss is a personal journey, but its nice to know that I have people cheering me on, standing on the sidelines with bottles of water and home made signs. It keeps me going when I'm feeling worn out, and following your journeys helps to motivate me every single day.

Valentines will be here in a few days, so have a wonderful holiday and buy yourself something special... and it doesn't have to chocolate! :)
