has it really been 8 months???

i honestly cannot believe that it has been 8 months since my weight loss surgery. the time has really flown by! i am very pleased to say that i have now lost 113 pounds!!! i give God all the thanks and glory for my success. the holidays were very easy ~ didn't have any desire at all to cheat. last week i started doing a pilates routine in the morning. oh my oh my ~ at the end of that first day i was feeling muscles that i completely forgot were even there. OUCH! they suggest that you do the workout at least 3 times a week. i waited a few days before my second workout because my abdominal muscles were really sore. worked out yesterday and this morning for around a half hour each. i was going to join Curves - and i still might - but i know me and the more convenient it is to work out the more i will be inclined to stick with it. in addition to doing pilates i am back on the treadmill every evening after dinner. i am trying to pump up my exercise because i want to lose 12 pounds before february 6th! my goal is to have lost 125 pounds by then. (actually my goal is to lose it by feb 4th, my birthday!)
