So, son of a gun, I lost 3 pounds this week! I’m at 255.5..woo hoo! I’ll post my updated progress pictures next Sunday, which I’ll take next Sunday..duh.
Seriously, you may not be able to tell much difference in the pictures I take but MAN, I feel like I’m living in someone else’s body-where did my stomach go? I feel positively slim these days! I’m 2.5 pounds short of hitting the 30 pound loss mark. Wow! Color me stunned.
283 to 255 1/2 since December 28-I’m pleased! Size 22 to a size 20. Oh…my…goodness…25 more pounds or so and I’ll be able to shop in the NORMAL girl size department. Cue giddy squeals.
I’m at a new point now in my head. I journal everything that I eat, every day, every meal, I get exercise in some form every single day and I think it’s FUN. I’m going to work now on stressing less about this whole gig, I’m going to start looking into some new forms of exercise for me-some weight training, some dvd’s that I’ve been scared to try, etc. I don’t know what that “etc” means…but I guess I’m saying that I’m more open to new things now and to new adventures.
I’ve lost 9.7% of my total body weight and have gone from a BMI of 43. 0 to 38.8. So far to go, but I am getting this, I have hope and belief now and I feel and look so much better. Sigh of relief. Happy sigh.
