WoW another week has passed. We are official one week til Christmas and I have to admit I am ready for Christmas to come and go. Its been extremely hard to get into the Christmas spirit. We go through the motions for the kids but thats about it. I want to get and into the spirit but this year its from missing family. I miss my Nana terribly. She was the glue that held us together in my family. I miss Family in general really… We use to get together every christmas eve and have our family party and then again on Christmas Morning.. But even with David’s family we have all just gotten seperated from eachother really. We will walk down to his parents house on Christmas day. I think we might see my brother at some point over the holiday period. I am hoping Lexi will be able to come over. But other than that its just a regular day with presents. I think with Last year losing my Sister in law at Thanksgiving and we lost David’s brother John at Christmas 6 years ago which is still hard on us to this day. I have figured out it doesn’t matter if you know days, months or years in advance it hurts just as much to lose someone as it does if its unexpected… Tina and John have both taught us that.
But I can say I am so thankful for my new family that I have gotten so close with over this year. I don’t know what I’d do without you guys… I now can say my family is honestly spread out all across the world. I can not wait until later in 2012 when we all get to meet up at Fitcation 12. I know that I can just tweet out or text and I have support and a shoulder or ear to lean on or vent too. I have multiple people who are ready at a moments notice for a good butt kicking for me or heck I have a few who like to give out butt kicks even when they aren’t asked for not mentioning any names *cough* (Leah) *cough* I love you girls so much and you each have a special place in my heart and in my life.
If you can’t tell I am kinda not really into my weight loss right now and not a full focus I am trying to enjoy the holiday time with my family my goal like I said was to maintain or gain no more than 5lbs plus I am pretty sure that I am nearing a plateau I’ve lost 75lbs this year…. 65 as a Mamavation Mom… My next huge goal is by August I would love to see 200lbs… But I am not setting my sights on it Im still working on this 5lbs at a time and I know eventually I will get there… Here is my scale pic for this week….
What is my biggest accomplishment of the year??
Well I think most would say the weight loss that I have had this year, but really I think its been more of me opening up and reaching out for help and learning that its ok to be me and its ok that I have a crazy brain and I can open up and let people in my life. I would say that is my biggest accomplishment. I am slowly learning who Meagan is. For the longest time I never knew who I was. I was always someone else who ever someone else needed me to be. But I am learning me.
