I realized yesterday that I weighed in at 244. That's 44 pounds gone and 44 to go before I hit that 200 mark. I know 200 pounds is still not a reasonable weight for a 5'2'' woman, but it feels like this is a major deal. Half way to that first BIG milestone. Of course I've been counting the little ones all along: every 5 is a little jump of joy. Every ten I walk around grinning like an idiot. When I hit 50 it's going to be surreal.
I also wonder: What will I look like? What will I feel like? To this point, I am still comfortably wearing my old clothes and I don't feel any difference when I walk or ski. Soon though there will have to be a breaking point. This will show. I will wear smaller clothes. I will have more stamina.
It's like driving to somewhere you've never been before and realizing when you climb out of that car, everything will be different! Well...bring it on! I deserve a vaction!
