Kind of a resolution, kind of a 'I didn't gain weight this year, yay!' post.

This past year, I made a resolution to keep going to BodyPump class. I have managed to do it all year, though I confess, I did miss a month here and there.. Not just a week, but too long periods of time. I went again yesterday. The gym has renovated and instead of being in the back of the class, where I usually stake out my spot, I found myself in front of a bright, new, clean, huge, flat mirror.

And I was happy with what I saw.

I am one of those people who seem to have body issues even though I don't have that much weight to lose, and to be perfectly fair, at my absolute heaviest I was 169.. I'm now 149 and still trying/not really trying to lose that last 10 lbs. (i'm currently 3 lbs under my wedding weight, 3 years, 3 months and 6 days ago)

But at least I didn't gain any weight this year, my arms look better, my legs look better, my boobs look fantastic. My arm flap isn't as bad as it used to be, and over this past year, I feel like I've gained some real definition. I can't stop sneaking a peek at the 'skinny' girls in the club though, and being envious.

I have no illusions about trying to eat really much less than I do - if I go under 1500 calories in a day, I'm a very sad panda, and usually am in the 1600-1700 range (with days where I just eat more because I want to). I have a friend who eat far more than I do (we all have them) and has a flat tummy, but she's also a marathon runner, and I admire her very much for her discipline. She, like many women, doesn't realize how awesome she is : )

This year, I'm getting back to yoga and continuing the bodypump class, even if I don't make it in twice a week. Even if I don't ever lose those last 10 lbs, I'm pretty happy the way I am now, and don't want to lose what I've gained, so to speak.
