well this past week payed off... I was really good, I only ate a few of my weekly flex points and exercised almost every day for 20minutes - 1 hour.
I stepped on the scale yesterday and got the best number I have had since starting.... 6.6 pounds! I really don't think I lost that much, I will prob see the rebound this week but it felt great seeing that number on the scale.
230.2 ..... wow, it almost seems unreal. When I think about myself I feel like I weigh 260 something for some reason, Its hard to wrap my head around being in the 220s because when I started at 273 pounds that just seemed impossible to me for some reason. I think its because the 220s are so so close to under 200 pounds and I havent been there in so long I think I had just given up on ever getting to my goal. Sad but true.
I'm so excited and happy. So far I have lost around 43 pounds!!!! It feels awesome and really drives me to keep going.
My husband has lost close to 75 pounds since the first of the year and I'm so proud of him. It's amazing losing weight together because when we started dating 4 years ago we were both bigger than we are now ..... so this is the smallest we have ever seen each other, its like discovering a new person every day. Noticing cheek bones or hips or how we can now wrap our arms around each other and do so many new things in the bedroom that I wont go into.... Its nice though and it makes me happy that he is so much healthier. When he was up at 330 pounds when we started I was getting so scared for his health, he dident look good or feel good, kept having chest pains (which is not good for anyone, expecially someone who is only 27 years old). I'm happy that our kids will never know the unhealthy parents we use to be.
I wish I could inspire the rest of our family to start living healthier lives as well but I geuss people can only change, when they make that choice.
