2011, you ended good.

So I'm ending the year 2011 with a weight of 252.4!
My starting 2011 weight was 278, which makes 2011 a year of the LOSER!!  I had a 25.6 pound loss!

HOLY COWS!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm pretty dang impressed, I admit to not trying near as hard after the school year started.  And with the holidays I've been avoiding the scale.  I am up about 5 pounds I guess since before Thanksgiving, but I am good with that.

People are starting to notice.  Not so much as people I work with, minus the librarian (but we talk about losing weight all the time.  She lost 60 pounds over the course of 2 years prior to me moving here and meeting her.)  But especially people on FB.  Most noticeable was a picture of me for our Christmas card.  My jeans are about to fall off, they are a size 22W and I would imagine I need a 18W (money's a bit tight, and jeans aren't worn very much.)  My sister made the comment that I needed new jeans because they were way too big.

2011 was a hard, hard year.  We moved to a new state, changed jobs (my husband twice- and LOVES the final choice,) I had a hard time dealing with the death of a beloved student of mine... plus a lot of medical drama while we were waiting for insurance to start.  (Why is it, you never seem to have medical drama while you have insurance?!)

We weathered it... we're still weathering it.  But in terms of health and fitness, I ended it with a bang.  I had a goal to lose, and I met it.  I didn't attach a number, and I am glad about that- because I think it would be higher than what I did lose.

I'm thinking about goals for 2012.
I have high hopes for the coming year as well.
