Success in the changing room....

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Tonight I had that moment in the dressing room where I realized, hey I look awesome and half this stuff doesn't even fit cause it's too big. Yup. It's a good day :)

My new dress and new outfit....

I was looking through my spark page and found this image...

I can't even believe that is me. That was my very largest size back in 2007. I showed my girls and they couldn't believe it was me. I barely even recognize myself in that picture. I don't ever want to go back to that....ever.

I am 7 years older now and I look so much younger now than I did then. It's crazy how extra baggage doesn't just pack on pounds, but years as well.

Here are two current images of me :)

I had to add the hat. We have a huge lot of hats in our office at work and of course I needed to try some on :) I should have been born in a different era. I love wearing hats.

I am 14 lbs away from onederland. I think I'll come back and blog the official countdown once I hit 210.

Ok I have to add one more image I took tonight. Sorry for the poor quality. My iPhone camera is not working properly. I had a hard time getting this shot. Those are size 28 pants....and those aren't even the biggest I have ever owned. And yes....both legs are in one side

Shrinking and shrinking some more....

Sunday, May 04, 2014

I haven't posted in forever. Just thought I'd update my progress. I am officially the incredible shrinking woman :)

This is me at 335lbs about a year ago...

This is me last august/September. I was about 295.

And this is me about 3 weeks ago at 218....same shirt, different jeans. :) I went from a 32 pant size to a 20/22 depending on cut.

16 lbs till onederland!!

Well they say time marches on....and whoever "they" are...well they're right. The last 2 months have been some of the most painful of my entire life. My heart has been shredded. My husband has not only left me....he also has a girlfriend now. How has this become my life?

I have decided to move with my kids across state. I have wanted to live there for so long. I am looking forward to a fresh start and establishing our family there. I have even checked out their planet fitness....I must keep moving forward.

On a positive note....I am so close to being out of the 3s. I have lost 41 lbs so far. Go me!

the good, the bad, and the ugly

Friday, July 12, 2013

It's been a bit since my last post. I am chugging along, even though I have been neglecting the tracker.

On the good....I joined planet fitness. I am actually really enjoying the gym. It's super clean and easy to find machines to use. I sold my elliptical. I just didn't use it at home. Ironically, it's the first thing I use when I get to pf.

Now the bad and ugly. My husband of 16 and 1/2 years has left me. I am devastated. My heart is crushed. I don't even know what to add to that. I am so thankful for the Lord's grace which is carrying me right now. I never realized how badly this would hurt....I thought I knew. I was wrong.

    Oh, my God! This is terrible. I'm so sorry.

You need to turn to yourself to find the courage to deal with the difficult emotional period you are going through and which also lies ahead.

Do not turn to food for comfort. It will be double hard now, but double catastrophic if you do.

No matter how hard it is, this will also pass. And when it does, it will be so much better if you have a new, even more beautiful body than now (cause you really are beautiful now, too)

Best wishes

    So sorry to hear about your personal situation. I can't imagine how tough that is to deal with. Take out the stress at the gym!!
