2011, you ended good.
My starting 2011 weight was 278, which makes 2011 a year of the LOSER!! I had a 25.6 pound loss!
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.
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.
