I did it! I FINALLY reached ONEDERLAND on Sunday. I didn't think it would ever be possible, and here I am! I haven't been this low in weight since high school! I'm so excited! I was hoping to be under 200 by the new year, but I was less than a week off, so I guess that's not too bad.
So far since I started in May of 06, I have lost just over 60 pounds and around 30 inches! I feel like I'm doing pretty good. My husband and I were looking at my pictures last night on here though and realized that I always take my pictures in different clothes so it's difficult to see how much I've really changed. So, I'm going to start taking them in clothes from previous pictures now so it's easier to see the difference.
For our New Year's Day party my husband and I cleaned out all of our drawers and closets and threw all of the clothes that were too big for US out into a pile. That was amazing as neither of us have ever done that before. It's always been the other way around, we are too big for our clothes. It was a great feeling to look at the huge pile of clothes and know that we will never get that big again.
I only have another 17 pounds to reach my original goal of 180. I can't believe how close that is! If I keep going strong, I should be able to reach 180 by March or April. Then I'm going to take a short break as I go to Vanuatu on vacation for a couple of weeks, and then I'm going to set my goal lower and see if I can reach 150 and get pregnant as I would really like to be able to have kids soon. Afterall, I will be turning 30 this year so I'm not getting any younger.
