Numbers Are Boggling My Mind!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I'm having a tough time getting my mind around numbers.

My scale says 231 - a weight I haven't seen in decades.

My total weight lost so far is 65 lbs since my HW. That is SIX ten lb and ONE five lb bags of potatoes!!! Another analogy is 3 1/2 bags of landscaping rocks at 20lbs/bag (what I carried this weekend :) They were SO HEAVY!!! I can't hardly imagine carrying that again on me in fat!

My jeans say size 14W - just a few months ago I wore skin tight size 24W.

My XL blouse size is baggy. I wore 3X and some 2X (tight) along with my 24W jeans.

I can easily walk 45 minutes now. Before I had a hard time walking 2 minutes to the mailbox and back.

On the other hand: I'm NOT stressing about being 53 emoticon

I'm feeling the best I have in a long, long, long time!

I'm soooo thankful to God, my family, my doctors and my Spark friends!!!

Happy New Year!!

    You are an inspiration! I have been there and know how good it feels to see the weight coming off. I wore a 26 and am now around a size 12! It is so exciting. I haven't been under 200lbs in over 15 years! I never thought I would be this size again. It's so nice to find someone else who is experiencing the same things. I am so happy for you!
