I figured I'd take a look back and see how I did in 2012.
First, December was a maintain. I weighed 218 on December 1 and 218 on December 31, too. I had gotten down to 211, but then had that lovely, rapid regain this past week.
Second, 2012 gave me a net gain of 17 pounds. That sucks!!! I have weighed very close to 217-218 every single month since I developed plantar fasciitis in March. It frustrates me because when 2012 was just starting, my goal was to focus on fitness and be more active and fit than ever. I got off to a good start, but somewhere along the lines I hurt my feet... and they have never healed. I did not meet my fitness goals at all.
I know weight loss... and keeping it off... can take time. I am proof of that. I am glad I have kept off 60 pounds over these years; that is a big accomplishment. But I would be lying if I said I mean to let this drag on forever. I don't want to be 60 years old and still hacking away at the same five pounds! This is my sixth year blogging, and once again I look at the coming year and just want to be done with this... with the weight loss. With the dieting. I want to move on to maintenance with Primal eating. I am patient, but I am starting to lose it! I need to be finished, and I cannot imagine sitting here in January 2014 saying "oh well, at least I lost ten pounds in 2013!" You know?? I just can't.
