    Hi all!
    I hope everything is well with you. Christmas is fast approaching and I cannot wait to visit my grandparents and eat ham. YUM!
    I weighed in today at 148.4 and am super happy. I really am going to go for a weight of 134 and be able to say I lost 100 pounds. I know the number on the scale isn't important, but it sure is nice to see it move down. I will be upping my strength training exercises for now, so I expect the weight loss to be slow going from here on out.
    I am super happy to be wearing a size 8 jeans now. It seems like it's been forever since I've worn anything under 10. I probably haven't worn 8's since I was 14 (so 8 years ago..)
    Still I'm keeping up with the little one and getting things finalized for the holiday. I work all weekend and Christmas eve day, but after 6pm I will be on my way to presents, family, treats, and great food!
    I hope you all have a safe holiday season-and remember! Everything in Moderation!!!
    Merry Christmas!
