19 days ....

That's it....that's all there is left to 2011.    My goal for this year was met...I had wanted to be 212 by 2012 and I made them.  I have the small goal now of being under 200 by the end of the year.  I'm close but I've been struggling a little bit these past days.   Part of it is the holiday season of course, but I think the other part of it is the number problem that many of us have.

I've read and experienced how when we get to a certain number we stall...out of fear, boredom, resignation...I'm not sure what.    So I'm there.   And I have vowed that I will not step on the scale until December 31st, so hopefully I will surpass that 200 number without spending all my time thinking about it.  I do not want my mind games to trip me up.  I look good, I feel good, and I am going to get through this.    So if you don't see my weight updated for the next 19 days, worry not....I'm not giving up.  I just need to get over this hill so I can continue with my progress!

If you haven't read Thursday's post about the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, please do.  And if you are so willing, consider donating toward the cause.  A huge shout out to Hillary, Leah and Jessica, who have been willing to donate!  It amazes me often the kindness and generosity of the blogging world!


  1. That is so awesome, Jodie - you are SO CLOSE to being under 200!! I know you are not giving up & I can't wait to see you get there!! :)

    I am doing good, too! Back on track, finally! :)

  2. No matter whether you achieve this goal or not, you will have had such a great year! And the coming year will be just as great.

  3. Yes, congrats on meeting your 2012 goal!!!

    Did I tell you my mom is a BC survivor? Yes, and she was offered all kinds of assistance, like a wig to borrow while she went through chemo, so I'm happy to help. Paying it forward...

  4. You need to update your pic of you and your girls!
