I don't even have enough time because I'm so busy with school, work, mommying and campaigning for this upcoming election that I can't even write a full blog entry explaining how so very proud of myself I am... yesterday when I stepped on the scale...it read 197.3!
I haven't been under 200lbs since 2008.
My first major goal was to get to 199lbs and I didn't even see that! I skipped that and went right for 197.
It hasn't been easy, there have been ups and downs, I gave in to temptation and had lazy days...but more often than not I made healthier decisions, and moved my body more than ever have in my entire life.
I have no major before and after picture because I am waiting until November 12 to post one of me in the maid of honor dress that I wore one year before at my best friends wedding... because after i saw pictures from that day, is when i got realllllly serious about my weight loss journey. I thought i looked pretty, but when I saw the pictures all i saw was barney..or a teletubby..and i didn't look happy. Anyways I am having the dress taken in to fit my new size (which will hopefully be even smaller by November... and at that point I will post my before and after picture.
but for now, let me tell you..I am exciiiiiited and filled with pride. no one else did this for me, no one can take these happy feelings away.
I would like to lose another 40lbs by January at the latest. I want to have lost an even 100lbs by January 1st.
It's doable, I know it is. soOoo look at me go!
