The difference a year makes

I was just looking back through my blog (since I kinda went public about my surgery today) and realized that it's been a year since I started it. I remember being so fed up with my weight last year, I decided to join Weight Watchers Online and I would make it work in Korea, one way or another. Yeah, that lasted about a week, although I was in denial for a few months and didn't cancel my membership until May or June probably.

My weight loss has been slow, but steady. I'm okay with that, as long as the scale is moving in the right direction. I also have to keep reminding myself that I'm pregnant, and maintenance at this point really is okay. I've also resolved to join the gym tomorrow that's $160 for 3 months. I told Marc to make sure I do it (despite the freezing cold 10-minute walk to get there) and you guys, please comment asking me if I did it! I haven't exercised in about a month... I had a bad cold one week, and that was it.

The scale told me 243.1 today--is it wrong that I already feel skinny? I guess it's just been so long since I've seen these kinds of numbers, my mind is playing tricks on me. I have to keep reminding myself that to other people, I'm still just fat. *sigh*

I'm happy with the way this blog turned out. I'm happy that instead of dying after 3 entries last January, I found a reason to pick it back up in September. I'm also happy that I found the bandster blog world because, honestly, this would be a heck of a lot harder without all of you!

Good for you with joining the Gym and I will ask you if you haven't! :)
But it will make your pregnancy go so much better too! Bunch of my girl friends said yoga helped them a lot too! 2011 will be a fab year for ya! I know it!

I am so excited for you, and so happy to see you have joined a gym and not using the pregnancy as an excuse to just quit. The exercising will definitely help with the pregnancy, and especially the delivery. I'm also really glad you stuck around, blog wise, and have joined the community!

Hang in there, girl. When you make the gym a part of your normal routine, you'll find it's not nearly as difficult as you imagined it to be.

I know what you mean when you say you feel skinny because you are seeing a number on the scale that You haven't seen for a long time - cause I feel the same way - !

I know I have about 60 pounds to go to get to my goal but I feel so good now - more energy and just liking myself a whole lot more. And yes, I feel skinny and how we feel about ourselves is what matters !!!

Keep up the good work and keep feeling skinny :)
