Allow Myself to Introduce.....Myself*

* You get a point if you can identify the movie that quote is from.

Well, I've been a bit scarce lately, but I'm back.

I basically maintained throughout January and February (and most of March...), but now I'm back in losing mode. I really needed a break from posting about my weight and just wanted to relax. I got up to 201, but now I am down to 196, my lowest weight since... I don't know when. My lowest on the TFTS challenge was 196.5, so I'm even below that and I'm on my way.

I kind want to beat myself up about taking the time off, but I also want to pat myself on the back. I maintained! I never knew that was possible for me. But, I did it. Now, I am re-focusing on losing my weight. Spring is here (basically) and I can enjoy some outside time. What's so awesome is that I know I can meet my goal this year. I want to weigh around 160. I can definitely lose 36 pounds in 2008.

I may whine some, but as long as I keep going, that's what matters!!

Do not beat yourself up, even a little bit. You have met a new milestone...to be lower than any other times during the challenges.
Celebrate that!

Keep up the good work!

That is awesome that you've reached your low and that you maintained while taking a break. I think we all need a break from time to time so we don't get obsessed over the number on the scale.

I'm usually good with movie quotes, but I don't recognize that one! :-)

I'm so glad to see you back posting. You're more than half-way there. Congratulations! Thank you for the kind words you left on my blog. :)

The quote is from the Austin Powers movie with Elizabeth Hurley.

We can do it! I just know it. Maybe it's that the sun is finally coming back or something, but I am finally out of my hibernation from eating right and I am determined to get this DONE! I want that 20 BMI - that's only three points down for me, but it is about 25 pounds. I started at a BMI of over 44, so I can do three points.
