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
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!
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.
Weigh in day today. Drumroll please......10lbs down. Yeah!! Go me!! Now that's a 2 week loss, so no worries about loosing too fast. It feels good to see a loss on the scale. It feels even better to feel healthier and notice the pants feeling a tiny bit smaller.
