I am hovering about 10 lbs above my goal weight, which is probably about 10 lbs above where my goal weight should be. I am continuing to suffer the repercussions of the Easter eating fest I had. I still am getting over gout, which gives me a ton of information about this issue I have. I am have learned that eating properly controls the gout AND regardless of my weight, I can still get gout. Being that it runs in my family it is apparent that I will not get over this simply by losing weight, it will be a fun battle I will fight throughout my life.
The last 2 weeks have been about the most stressful I have had in years. The plus is, I am still losing weight throughout a very stressful beginning of the year. In fact, the timing of this all has been perfect because had I not chosen to "take shape for life" I think instead of losing, I would have seriously gained, so for that I am very grateful.
I had hoped to be adding a good workout program by now, in fact I had started P90X about every other day (which turns it into P180X but who's counting). I got through about a week of that, then the gout. I haven't even played basketball in over a week and it's pretty frustrating.
I did have one huge success, I just bought for myself a pair of size 33 waist jeans. 33 waist! I haven't worn a 33 waist since high school, frankly I didn't wear 33's then because it was cool to have huge pants... AND I wore a shirt I accidentally purchased a couple years ago that was WAY too small, now it's the only shirt I have that really fits.
