I am closing in and I can really start to see the finish line. The last 10lbs have really challenged me. I am only average about 1 pound loss a month and that is with me working out 5 - 6 days a week for an hour, and staying pretty darn strict with my diet. I have to really work hard at staying motivated cause it can be hard. I have to keep reminding myself how far I have come. I started out at 220+ and my weight this morning was 143.6.
I have started to really focus on strength training in the last few months and I am just beginning to see the evidence of abs under their.
So I am adding another picture and will try to do one for May and then June which is my goal date.

As I am getting closer to the end of my weightless journey ( I am right now 147.8) and depending on when you ask me I am either 7.8 lbs away from my goal or 12.8 away my final goal keeps changing my high school weight was 135 so that is where the 12.8 comes from.
Anyways as I get closer I am reflecting more and more at the start of my journey at 220+ lbs I was such a different person, not just my body or my clothes size, I was sad, I was depressed, I was trying to ignore my hurt with unhealthy foods and beer. My love of clothes had been pushed back and I barely put on makeup, I can honestly say that at that point I thought I was going to be fat forever and that I need to kiss my former skinnier self goodbye. Man what a difference 3 years makes. When I made the decision to lose weight I knew that it was going to be a forever thing no fads or crazy diets for me. I began slow and just kept chugging along. There were times that I wanted to give up (especially during my year long platue at 169. I may have slowed down once and awhile but never gave up. I am thinking of making a time line in pictures of the last 3-4 years of my life so that I can see the progression good and bad. Anyways I am posting another (gulp) bathing suit pick (well two) I am really working on toning right now as I try and shed the remaining (very stubborn) pounds. "As I look at the pictures I can pick them apart for hours but I have to kick myself and say wait just a minute Jennifer look how far you have come"
I don't know if I will ever give anyone inspiration but I just want to say that 4 years ago I got winded going up a few stairs, I have now ran 3 5k's in the last year. I used to cry about exercising for 20 minutes 3 times a week; I can now handle almost any challenge Jillian throws at me.
So here’s to 2011 being the year I finally come face to face with my goal,
See you at the finish line,
And one in the original bikini that I first posted in :-)

Ok, I know that I said that I was going to be updating this Blog at least once a month but, life of course gets in the way of that. My weight loss journy is still going, I have not slid at all but I have not had the great weight-loss I would hope for. I am at 157, and so desperately want to get at least 15 more lbs off. It is starting to seem like I will forever be chasing this goal, but I will not give up. I am posting a new pic of me in my swimsuit so that I can see the progress, it is not the best pic, but it is all I got :-

It has been quite a bit since I added something to my blog,
Well I have had some weight loss not quite where I wanted to be for My Vacay but It is something and I will take it. I wanted to be at 157, but I am at 163.6. I am still running on pretty much a daily basis with hubby, we had to take a 3 day break because of rain, but we are both getting antsy to get out there and run tomorrow morning, My diet has been going pretty good as well, staying pretty much on track, I am starting the 2nd state of weaning my little guy so I am nervous about that and how it will affect my weightless, I really hope my sugar tooth hits the road, anyways this week I am phasing out all of his day time nursing, so He will only nurse at night and then next month I will phase out night times. I am a little sad but excited as well, I am soooo not going to be one of those extended nursers no offense to anyone but it kinda freaks me out a little bit when I see someone nursing a toddler. but I digress.
So all in all I am happy with my progress even if it is a little slow.
Now I need to find out if they are going to let Heidi and Spencer come back to "I'm a celebrity get me out of here"
