Ok - I have been working hard at it and then today finally weighed myself AND changed my ticker thing.... Ony 10 lbs to go!!! Wooo hoooo! I am at my pre-#4 weight and 10 lbs from my pre #3 weight!!!!
So according to the Breakdown I have 20 lbs... right? But my ticker shows 10. Why again? I changed it. My healthy weight range is 135-169. My original goal was 130. It is still in the back of my mind... but my goal for now is to be healthy and strong - and 10 lbs above my lowest healthy weight is probably still pretty great! So - my goal now is my pre - Hannah weigh, 145. And just so you don't have to start doing the math yourself, that means I am now at 155. I don't like that weight... I REALLY don't! Though right now it feels really good because of where I have been!
I am sure that after I hit 145 I will still want to keep losing - but I am trying to focus and remind myself that my goal is NOT to be the skinniest person I know... but to be strong, eating healthy, and available for my kids. When I have extra weight I just don't focus on them like I want to - I am so tired and frustrated and kinda grumpy! I am excited about how VERY VERY close I am! I am sure I will be to my goal by Elise's first B-day... THEN we will see about the original goal. It simply may be too much for me to do with 4 little kids... but at least I can feel good about the fact that I am focusing on keeping their Mommy healthy so that she will be around and available to them for a looooooong time!
