50 pounds... GONE!!!

Friday, March 16, 2012

I've been in this process for quite a while now. There have been ups and downs. Luckily, one of the few downs has been my weight!! emoticon

Here's what 50 pounds looks like...

4 sticks of butter in a pound... that's 200 STICKS OF BUTTER!! It takes me almost 2 weeks to eat one stick of butter now.

10 fully grown chiuahuas. Which make a nagging, yapping noise like the pain in my joints that I no longer hear screaming at me.

10 bags of sugar, which I eat now, sparingly (real organic sugar only, no fake stuff please!!)

5 10 lb hand weights, which I use almost daily to help tone my shrinking arms.

2 of these spare tires, which are no longer around my belly

And something to remind me when I'm sad that I "only" lost 1 lb...

Thanks to my SparkFriends who support me on my journey!!

    I have a bag of sugar at home wrapped in plastic wrap and taped up, ready to remind me at the 5-pound mark that I've lost that much weight. Thanks for posting those pics. It's amazing how much extra baggage we carry (or have carried) with us every day.
