Randy got me a few t-shirts for Christmas, and so did my mom! Also I got a gift card to Coquitlam Centre (big, huge mall) I am tempted to buy a fancy new camera with that money and my $500 from the weight loss challenge, but I'm still deciding....

I will continue to weigh myself at home, and every wednesday I will record that weight. My mom challenged me to see who could lose 10lbs first....so far I'm winning :) I went Christmas shopping at Old Navy today, and man do they have some good sales right now! Just for kicks I tried on a pair of jeans, because mine are getting baggy. And yippee, a size 10 fit! It was just a few months ago I was wearing a size 18 pants! I didn't buy the jeans, because I don't have the money (saving the $500 for some down south outlet shopping) but now I know, I am a size 10! I can actually go to Lululemon now and buy more than just headbands!! Too bad it's so expensive!

Comparing this last picture with the rest really puts things into perspective for me, and gives me motivation to keep going and not give up!
Tomorrow is weigh in day, and I'm hoping to be down again. I'm not expecting a big loss, just really hoping not to gain this week.

With the 12 week challenge finished I was worried that I would lose my motivation. Thankfully the gym has started another cycle. I am all signed up and ready! My goal weight was 160lbs by my birthday (feb 12) which I have now changed, again. My new goal weight is 140lbs. I don't have a date set that I'd like to be at, but my birthday would be nice, however I don't think I can lose 25 lbs in the next 8 weeks....but we'll see. I have become alot more lax when it comes to my diet, which really sucks, but I haven't been horrible. Something I can definitely live with, without going overboard. This is a constant battle and I'm learning as I go. The 10k race I am signed up for is fast approaching, and I'm really excited for it. A fellow blogger friend just signed up for a half a marathon, and it's something that I have been thinking about for quite some time. I haven't told anyone though, because I didn't think it was attainable. But now that my friend has signed up, I'm thinking maybe it is possible that I could complete one....one day.

Wednesday I was weighed in, and I didn't want to tell them I was sick, because no one likes sick people....and I was scared they would say something about me losing so much weight in one week, so I quickly chugged a litre of water right before I went in to get weighed, lol. I still tipped the scales at 168.8, which is down 6lbs from the week before. I told him I just tried really hard so I would win. And win I did. They are having a little awards ceremony, which I think is lame, just give me my money already! But I will be contacted in about 2 weeks with a date of when the ceremony will be....Five hundred smackaroos! I already have that money spent in my head, all the cute little outfits I am going to buy and purses and shoes! Ahhh, I'm so excited!
So my total for the past 12 week is.......41lbs, on the dot! They measured me as well, and I don't have them right in front of me, because it's midnight and I'm in bed, but I know the inches lost is quite something. I know I lost 8 inches just off my hips. In 12 weeks, seriously! It is so amazing to me the differences I see in these past 12 short weeks. I feel like such a new person, inside and out! I dream of going for hikes with the family and swimming, and water slides! Stuff I used to dread and avoid at all costs! I would worry friends would invite us to the beach and have excuses ready why we couldn't go. Now, it's like pick us, pick us! I will try anything! I am no longer embarrassed of my weight. I weighed 164.2 this morning. I could scream that number from the roof top, I am so proud of it! I'm sure I sound like a real butthead right now, but when people congratulate me, or tell me how good I look, I kind of down play it and just say thanks, or say I've lost a bit of weight....but here can I just said that I am so proud of myself and I'm starting to love the way I look!
Now back to business, I haven't worked out since Saturday! That's almost a whole week! Now that the sickness is gone, it's time to get back at 'er. And even though I weighed 164 this morning, I'm sure most of those pounds will come back momentarily until I can actually work it off, and not lose it by being sick.
Oh, before I leave, I am officially registered the a 10k race. January 17th, is the Chilly Chase and I shall run it! That's my motivation to keep running through the holidays! What's keeping you from over indulging in Christmas baking and skipping out on some workouts?? We can be the few that loses weight at Christmas instead of gains!
