#smartforlife #momjunkydiet Week 19
Blog - March 2, 2016

So this is week 19. Time passes by so fast, I can’t believe it. I’ve never stayed consistent with my eating for so long. Before Smart for Life all I knew was indulging with slowly increasing portions until it was time for a crash diet, and then the cycle would start again. I feel like the clock went back 20 years! I am very happy with my weight and am loving pulling out all the old fabulous clothes I own that haven’t fit me in years and now fit me.  It’s so much fun!

In my excavation of old clothes, I still found about 4 pairs of jeans and pants that don’t fit and that is going to be my new goal.  Not by pounds although I weigh in tomorrow, but by them fitting me.  I have the most fabulous pair of Dolce & Gabana pants that are so obnoxious and loud, and so me; but they don’t fit.  They are an Italian size 42 which is supposed to be the equivalent of an American size 8.  But D & G runs small so think size 7 US.  I hope to have a pic of me wearing them in about a month.  That is my last and final goal in this weight loss journey.  My main focus is now toning up.

I don’t know why it took so long for me to care about getting in shape.  Maybe Boca Raton, FL did it to me, lol.  I was skinny fat for so long and thought it looked good, I didn’t know any other way.  Now being toned shows that you’re fit, you’re strong.  I’m turning forty five in about a week and I even though I am not where I want to be physically, I am working on it. I am realizing as I am advancing in my journey that losing weight and toning up isn’t only something that a 20 year old can do, and it isn’t only genetics. Of course age and genetics play a part, but as you work on learning your body you can achieve the same body a 20 year old can. If you had told me that 6 months ago I would have definitely called you delusional, but after 19 week on Smart for Life and starting back in the gym I realize that you can achieve anything if you really put your mind to it. Tomorrow I am going for my weigh-in and I am excited to see the results of the consult.
