long time no see

Hey bloggers!

I have been MIA for a while mainly because of school but lets be real..I have had plenty of time that I could have come on and done a little update here and there.  I have been slowly getting out of my good exercise and diet routine and one of the first parts of that I think was when I stopped writing here.  I have been doing pretty good overall since I last blogged.  I now weigh 191.8 (out of the 200s :)!!) and have lost 58.2!!  I can definitely see the changes now and I'm happy about that.  I even have some size 14 jeans now...and when I started in the summer I was really a size 20 but trying to squeeze into my size 18s.  Now I have a pile collecting of things that aren't even wearable anymore. 

I'm really happy with all this success but I'm not done yet.  My weight watchers goal is 170 so I still have about 20 lbs to lose.  Lately the weight has been coming off really slowly compared to summertime and that is discouraging to me. Up until about 2 weeks ago I was still losing, but at a slow pace..which is fine.  Two weeks ago I gained .4 and today at my WW meeting I gained 2.4 post thanksgiving weekend.  I was very sad at the meeting especially listening to the other members discuss how they were successful and made it through the week.  I confess that I pretty much went totally off plan for thanksgiving and the days at home that followed.  I still was fitting in some workouts so thats good but it was not compensating.  I was pretty good with the thanksgiving food but its that dang dessert that got me!  and the meal was at our house so we had all the leftovers sitting around staring me in the face!!  ahhhhhhhh!  Thanksgiving was great though because I saw all my family and none of them have seen me since at least the beginning of the summer when I was at my heaviest (60lbs larger).  Everyone gave me tons of compliments and noticed my changes.  I enjoyed the attention haha!

Anyways, I am back at school and am dedicated to sticking to plan, exercising, and getting back to my normal routine.  This will be hard as we are about to enter finals and life will get crazy but hopefull
