Unrealistic Goal??

It's been awhile since I posted a weight loss update - and for good reason.

I haven't really lost weight here lately.

I decided about two weeks ago to take a break from food journaling - I second guessed my decision to even do it to begin with because I can become a bit of a food natzi when I track each and every morsel I put in my mouth but I gave it ago because I had a goal to reach.  And you know what?  I became a food natzi.

At least I realized it early enough to try to fix it.

I am still 10lb from my goal, which was to be 150lb by the time we leave for Disney next weekend.  I know there is no chance I will hit it.  Am I disappointed??  Maybe a little.  Was it an unrealistic goal??  Probably not.  Just because I don't reach it doesn't make it unrealistic :)

That being said - I have come a long way since the beginning of the year!  I can shop in my closet for clothes that I haven't worn in over 2 years - that alone is much better than seeing a certain number on the scale!  I am healthier and stronger and now that I don't obsess over each bite I take I think I'm less cranky - which makes me a better wife and mom.

Once we return from Disney I will do my best to drop these pesky 10lb.  Good news is that I have my first half marathon in 30 days and training for my upcoming races is getting intense so I'm sure that will help.

Plus who wants to go on vacation on a diet??  Not this girl :)
