Working my way to a new me!

Hello! I have been married for 22 years and have two daughters. We also have a mini dachshund that turned 6 in May. I started a weight loss plan in April 2007 and lost 48 pounds. I reached my goal weight (of 130) on December 17, 2007 and now have lowered my goal to 128 so that it's an even 50 lbs to lose. I have so much more energy and though I still HATE to exercise, I'm more willing to do it. I joined a gym in Feb 08 and it seems to have been the best thing I've ever done.

UPDATE 7-1-10: I have been maintaining at home for over a year but this past winter I didn't watch my foods (well I did watch them as they were going "in") and now I'm 15 lbs heavier although still fitting into my size 6 (still wondering how but not complaining). I want to lose the little bit of fat that has settled in my abdomen and just look a bit better so going to get back to what I know...and that's counting points and following my WW guidelines.



5/26/08 I ran in my first 5K race. My blog talks of the race in detail but bottom line is I finished in 38:51. Not the best time, but I'm just happy that I finished.

*************************************
Accomplishments:

In all, I've lost 48 lbs.
I've lost 5 3/4 inches from my hips
I've lost 7 inches from my waist (wow)
I've lost 2 3/4 inches from my chest (sad...I know)
I've lost 2 3/4 inches from my right thigh
I've lost 2 3/4 inches from my left thigh
I've lost 1 1/4 inches from my neck

I've also dropped from a size 16 to a size 6.

*************************************
Here is the amount of weight I've lost in terms of food with the following formula: 1 lb = 4 squares of butter, 5 lbs = 1 sack of potatoes, 10 lbs = 8 medium cantalopes, 25 lbs = 3 gallons of milk.

I have lost:

3 gallons of milk
16 medium cantalopes
12 squares of butter

When you think of it that way, doesn't it sound amazing??
