I have accomplished so much in this last year and I do see the success that I have had even if the scale isn't moving down like I would like it to. I have been hovering around 200 now for the last 6 months and I am happy that I have not allowed myself to just give up and watch my weight come back.
I have maintained.
I have a "magic" number that I feel that I should be getting to and by maintaining I am not getting there.
But it feels like I have been in an uphill battle since I finally hit under 200. I was happy and excited that I hit a weight that I hadn't seen since I was a senior in high school. But then my weight loss stopped. No matter how good I eat or how much I exercise it feels like I am not making any progress. I have not given up all together but I do feel how I am not giving it my all anymore and haven't quite figured out how to get back to it 100%.

I am proud of what I have done in this last year which is more than I thought I ever would be able to. I have run a 5K and gotten my personal best pace, I have run a 10K without walking any part of it, I have climbed partly up Mt. Hood and it felt great, I have kept up with my kids and even passed them and having them ask me to slow down....lol

Giving up doesn't feel like an option anymore, so to me that is great progress. So all in all, even though the scale isn't showing what I think it should be showing, I feel that so far its been a great year!
I am looking forward to the remainder of the year being just as great!

    Listen up girly - you can and will get past this it took Krista months of losing ounces just ounces but she got to goal and what she learned though that time was patience and learned to maintain her weight ask her anytime how hard it was and she will tell you the same thing that you just reflected on that you NEVER EVER GIVE UP -- you are no quitter you are a winner you are so much more! You inspire greatness from others!! you are leading and showing and sharing others how to do things you have leanred. You will get to your goal, maybe slower then once thought but challenge yourself to something you never thought you coldn't do before. you are in so much better shape. I inspire to be able to run a full 5k and to woggle the half in december by doing 1/4 mile to a 1/3 mile runs and 3/4 to 2/3 walking the whole way. my training for the holiday will begin next week a few days after my half i challenge you to start training for the vernonia half in the spring and hoping i can woggle more of it and see you at the end!!!!! you are a CHAMPION!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon time to train for a half emoticon

    You've never lost the battle until you give up - so HANG IN THERE! Glad that giving up isn't an option for you, that IS a huge step forward. We're behind you 100%

    Take care...and take care of yourself because you're worth it!
