Hi, my name is Katie and I'm a blog slacker.
Okay, first the excuses. The whole inspiration for this quest was looking good for Becky and Jason's wedding on 9/3/11. Success. At that point, I had lost 25.4 pounds and was doing great. Shortly after, I was cast in a production of "Rent", the musical. Great, more inspiration to look good... have to impress the fans. :)
Then things went downhill. As my theater friends will tell you, an intensive rehearsal schedule can kill you. Once I hit tech week, my eating patterns went back to fast food extremes, I didn't have time to exercise, blah blah blah... Then Bob got really sick and eventually passed, then I was in NY for a stint, then it was the holidays, then I went on a cruise... blah blah blah.
So yeah, I was busy. An excuse? A reason? Don't know, don't care - it's in the past. At my best, I was down 34.6 pounds. The last 2 months I gained a bunch of that back. As I sit here typing, I've gained back 12 of those pounds.
The bad news - that sucks. That was 12 pounds that took forever to take off. It's 12 pounds that's gonna take ANOTHER forever to take off again.
The good news - I'm back on track. Back at my WW meetings, back at Planet Fitness, back in a motivated mind set.
So now, I just need to keep my eyes on the prize and go. I'm still 22.6 pounds lighter than I was when I started March 26, 2011. I'm healthier, and I'm in better shape...
Now it's just time to keep going. Time to be skinny. Or at least sweetly slender.
