I finally did it! Exactly 20 months and 3 weeks after I stepped on the plane to Germany, I am back at the weight I was that day! Coming home 20lbs heavier and being pregnant before we got home, watching the weight creep up for another nine months, I despaired that I might never get back here again in those darkest of days. I kicked that attitude in the butt the minute Izzie was born and decided that I would be there before Christmas. Hard work, determination, and sheer willpower are what led me back here and not only did I reach that weight, I blew through it!
It's time to start thinking about a new (and final) goal before I start the long lifetime- journey of maintenance. I'm not done having kids, so there will come times when it becomes necessary to kick it into weight-loss mode once again, but by reaching my ultimate goal before then, I will have less to lose before maintenance become the norm again. So much of my family hasn't seen me in months and I'm excited to blow everyone away when I next see them. My 93 year old grandma sees us maybe once a year (if that) and the last two times she saw me was when Brady was 10 months old (170lbs) and last year when I was seven months pregnant with Izzie (189lbs). She's likely to think I'm sickly because she's never seen me thin.
