Under 150!

Saturday, September 15, 2012

My last blog was about how I could finally fit into a size 9. This one is about how I'm under 150. For the first time since I was in middle school I'm now under 150. Just barely, but I've been waiting for this day for a long time. I always look to the bmi as motivation; I know that I can't just depend on that, but it's definitely been helping me to get to where I want to be. I feel closer to my goal than ever, and it's got me really excited again.

Before and After: Size 9 Jeans! Update with pictures!

Monday, September 10, 2012

Someone suggested after I posted my blog yesterday that I post before and after pictures. I thought that was a great idea! I still have a hard time seeing myself as anywhere near my goal, but once I was able to see before and after pictures I realized how much I had really changed. I'm sure like a lot of people out there I still have a hard time seeing myself in my new skin. Even though I've done really well I still sometimes see myself as the old me, but I don't know that I can see myself that way anymore. :D

    Awesome job :) I've had the same problem, even with the 80lbs gone I still feel like the old me sometimes, then I just look at my before and after pictures and I'm reminded that no way do I look the same or am the same person I use to be.

Size 9 jeans!

Sunday, September 09, 2012

When I started my journey in March of 2010 I was at my heaviest and most depressed. At that time I was in size 20 jeans, I had started to think I would always be that heavy, but then I decided to change my lifestyle. Now over two years later, I'm so happy I'm long gone from that size and the other day I went jean shopping (which I dread) and I tried on a size 9! I repeat size 9! I've never been able to fit into that, other than when I was a child and was having to wear adult women's clothing, but now I can wear those and I look great!

Thinking about how much my waste has changed got me thinking about how different I really am from that little shy, depressed, and lonely girl that I was a few years ago. A lot has changed for me since I decided to lose weight and get healthy. I got braces, then got them off and have a very purdy smile now. I also had a spinal fusion that corrected my posture last year, and now I have a boyfriend (my first). The weight loss that I have achieved has given me so much confidence and motivation and I just hope that I can share that with the people around me and the people of Sparkpeople. If I can do this, anyone can!

    Wow, that is terrific! Would you consider sharing before/after pictures? You'd probably get a Most Popular Blog award if you did. :)
