{March 18, 2013}   Hurray for Two!

Yep, two pounds down from last week! I think that’s the biggest drop I’ve had in weeks and I am thrilled with it. I know some people see the small numbers and get frustrated but it’s coming off and NOT staying on and as they say, it didn’t take a short time to get the weight ON, so it’s not going to be quick getting it off. Another thing I tell myself is the fact that it’s dropping slowly SHOULD mean I have less loose skin once I get to where I want to be, which would be very nice.

I’m at 73 pounds lost since July but at this very time last year, I was actually 81 pounds heavier than I am currently. My heaviest weight ever was 376. Just 24 pounds shy of 400. Now I’m 5 pounds UNDER 300!

There was a time where I would have been so scared to admit my heaviest weight and embarrassed about it, but it’s the truth. I used to weigh that much and right now, 295 is exciting to see! I know that I still have a ways to go, but I feel like I have come SO far in almost 8 months and I don’t find anything embarrassing or shameful about how far I have gotten. I feel very proud of myself and I feel so much happier AND lighter. To the world, I may still seem heavyset, overweight or w/e else but in this personal journey, I don’t feel it anymore. I feel healthy and alive and I love how I’m looking everyday and I guess that’s what matters the most, right? 🙂

I’m really considering something special for when I hit my 100 pounds lost mark….not food related, of course, but maybe saving some money aside for something I really want or going somewhere special with my husband. I feel like once I get to that 100 pound mark, I deserve it, right?!

That’s all for now….See you next week for another update….Maybe another 2 pounds and then I’ll be at the 75 lb. mark! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
