It's Been A Long Time.

Tonight I finally have a moment of peace without pain. I am currently suffering from a sinus infection that is wearing me down because of my inability to control the pain with OTC pain meds. I finally broke down and took two of the pain meds that were previously prescribed by my doctor a year ago. And, finally some relief.
Well, I decided to take a moment to update my page and to look at my progress. I noticed for the month of March my progress has slowed considerably as far as weight loss. I am slightly disappointed, but only because I know that I could have done much better. I don't believe I held myself as accountable as I could have or as accountable as I had in previous months. Looking at this reminded me of why I need to make sure that I continue to come by and log in and update my status everyday and not just every now and again. I know that I can accomplish and will accomplish my current and future goal. I missed my 10% interval mark by 5.6 lbs. I will continue to work at it and my hope is that I will lose the 10 lbs that I have set for April and earn my next reward by meeting my intermediate goal weight of 222lbs.
Not all is awry though. I actually have almost totally replaced my wardrobe. Out of neccesity of course. I am now venturing into territory that I have not seen since high school or maybe even middle school. I am currently moving totally out of size 18 into a 16. I have even purchased and can wear some 14s out of LB. In fact I am in a solid 16 when it comes to the plus size stores. Other regular size brands I am in an 18 or 16 depending upon the style and cut. I am so excited about my progress as far as inches are concerned. I am also proud of my workouts and the great strides I have made to remain consistent. Spring Break was a different story, but I have since made up for that and am hjappy to say I am right back in the saddle. I am also now working out a total of 5 days a week. One of those days being swing out dance class. I am excited about that class. I have said for many years that I was going to take that class and this year I stated that I would take one even if I had to travel. Just so happens that a girl I know directed me to a local class. We are now growing closer and I may have found a pretty good friend as well with her and the instructor. They are quite nice and we have a lot to learn from them about this art.
Needless to say, that even in the midst of not meeting that small goal, I have met so many other wonderful milestones. I can't wait to see where I go from here. The sky is the limit.
