50 down and 25 to go....

Monday, October 13, 2008

I haven't felt much like blogging the last 2 weeks. I struggled with 160 for an entire week but I finally made it yesterday and today I broke it with 159.6 and that was exciting.

I went through my closet and denim dresses that had been too tight are now too loose - I never got to wear them, lol. This is happening with loads of pants that I held for years in the hopes of fitting them again someday. Well, now they are too loose too and I am going to donate them.

Shopping is fun again as now I can even find things on the clearance rack that either fit me or will fit me soon! Really a great feeling that you will all experience very soon!

Oh yeah! I let my skinny sister try on some sale Capri's from Wal-marts and we now wear the same size! WooHoo!! She is smaller through the hips yet but I am in the pants and can sit down and everything! Now that is what I call exhilarating news!!

The image is my virtual model at 138! I'm on my way!!


** Sheesh, I forgot! I am now lighter than I have been in 20 years!! I want to celebrate but don't want to go over my range, lol.

    I am inspired! Can't wait to meet my goal of being able to wear more than 10% of clothes in my closet. That's a GREAT one!

You look amazing and sound like you feel amazing. Keep it up!

    You are so amazing. your doing great. I am so proud of you and I am so impressed with the fact that you are the same size as your skinny sis, I think that is a major milestone besides the 50, you should be holding your head up high knowing you are doing so well.

This is a great accomplishment :)

I am so proud of you and your accomplishments. However, you now weigh less than I do. Boy, does that inspire me to work harder - just can't let you outdo me. (Although you are a little younger than me, too.)lol We had another wedding in the family this past week-end, but with that over, I am determined to focus on weight loss.
Love ya (and Uncle Ray),

p.s. Celebrate by buying a fantastic new outfit instead of food.

    That is awesome!! Doesn't it feel good to have clothes 'outgrow' you while they were just sitting there?

You'll be at your goal weight in no time.

    Way to go, Linda! Clothes shopping is so much more fun, when we are small enough to have more to choose from. And also, I find our tastes in clothing become a little younger.

So proud of you! Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see the real picture of you, instead of the "virtual" one.

    Funny, I had the same "problem" when I went through my closet last month... Not to mention some of my ten year old clothes were out of style!

You are doing so awesome!!!

    That's phenomenal. I can't wait to fit into the few things that I've kept back. I also can't wait to buy the new wardrobe!

    Wow! Awesome progress! Reading entries like this really helps keep me motivated... 160 is still 12 pounds away for me, but I can already imagine how great it'll feel to be there. :)
