3 months after starting this journey...

Down 2 lbs!  I'm currently at 188, making my goal of being in the 180's by Christmas.  But I'm not stopping there.  I am planning on kicking it into high gear this week to hopefully lose another pound or so before Friday.  The farther from 190 I am, the better.  I have to say, seeing my ticker say "18 pounds until the new me" really scares me.  Less than 20lbs to go?  Being at goal is scary, even scarier than losing the weight.  Because, what is the point of losing it all if I can't maintain the weight loss? 

That being said, I really don't think 170 is going to end up being my final weight.  I think having two kids by c-section has completely changed my body.  I'm holding onto alot more stomach weight than I have before.  I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, right now my sole focus is gaining the least amount of weight possible over the holidays.

On another note, I'd like to set my next goal.  I am going to Mexico at the beginning of March.  I'd love to be between 170-175 when I leave.  So that is what I will be working at in the New Year, getting bathing suit ready. 

This is me when I first started this journey in September at 212lbs.  The pictures below were taken last week at 190lbs.

You look FANTASTIC Christine!!! ANd you're right, I think being at goal is harder than losing the weight (although right now I'd rather be at goal than trying to lose :) it's just learning a new way of eating and to teach yourself to not obsess 24/7. I find it easier when I am obsessing!

Anyways, you look wonderful, good for you for trying to lose as much as possible before the holidays. Have a wonderful Christmas and we should hook up in the New Year!
