5 months left

So we’re near the end of July, almost August. Before you know it, summer will be over. I can’t believe how much time has passed since I started this ol’ blog. 6 months! In that time, I have lost 50 pounds, and kept it off despite the chaos that has taken place these past few months. I’m very proud of that, but I would be prouder if I kept at it in the same pace. I haven’t gone off the deep end or thrown away all of the good habits I’ve established, I just haven’t been fighting for it. I should weigh much less than I do now, if I had kept going I would have. My options are:

(A) Keep maintaining.
(B) Throw in the towel.
(C) Get my ass in gear.

I don’t know if I can get back that inner rock star of the winter/spring months because my mind is quite consumed with my son and getting his services established at the moment, but I would like to finish what I started. I want to finish 2012 at 50 pounds less than what I weigh now. I want to start 2013 being fit, which I what I wished for back on January 17th, the day I started this blog. I have 5 months left, so it can be done. I can be in a size 8 by Christmas!!! It IS possible and within my reach. So that is why I am choosing option (C).


  1. Heck yeah, mama :) I have no doubt you can, you are mighty strong.

  2. To quote an old movie, "You've chosen wisely." :)

  3. Ooooh, for a minute there I thought I was gonna have to make a road trip to KICK YOUR ASS... ;) Good conclusion, Mina. Power up & GO GET IT!
