I LOST 50LBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

i did it i did it i did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a year ago i decided to try to lose 50lbs. at first i wanted to lose 50lbs by my birthday (august) and that didn't happen, though i was headed in the right direction. Then i wanted to lose 50 by christmas, but thanksgiving and the weeks afterward totally derailed me. So then i decided to just try to lose 50lbs within a year of starting, which was january 26th. Well, I didn't make it by January 26th, but I did by February 1st!!!! that's 50lbs in just over a year. in some ways i feel i should have lost more than that, in other ways it feels just right. 50lbs in a year. a pound a week. slow, steady, and sustainable.
now for the next goal.. 50lbs this year!!! then i'll be down 100lbs, which will put me at 194lbs. still "too big" for the height and weight charts, for sure. but a good place to stop, sustain, and see how it goes.
people ask me all the time how i've done it, and i can't say enough about this site. the tracking has worked wonders for me. i feel accountable. i eat more mindfully because i know i can't eat with abandon. it's flexible. it's free. it's supportive. and i can go at my own pace and still be human. i can make my favorite cake and factor it into my day. or i can eat all the cake i want, feel ill, and then climb right back on that wagon. i love it!!!
thank you all!!!!! you helped me make my dream come true!!!
