Where I'm At Now

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Wow! It has been an awesome year for me so far. Since I started using Weight Watchers and Spark People in January I have lost 56 pounds! It's truly amazing how far hard work and dedication can get you. It's definitely not easy and I've come to the conclusion that weight loss can not solve confidence issues automatically. When I look in the mirror I still see myself at 400 pounds. I wish I could get rid of that memory but it is what it is. The only time I really recognize my accomplishments is when I try on old clothes...they're huge emoticon ! One of the best things about this lifestyle change is seeing the look on peoples faces when they see me for the first time in a while. That's how I know it's real!

I am only half way to my goal but I'm very proud of what I've accomplished so far. A very good friend of mine asked me a couple days ago if I would run one of those Warrior Dash runs with her. The thought of doing that seems impossible but I know I'm getting stronger every month. I'm thinking that could be one of my big goals.

Well, that's it for now. I'll try to come on here more often with updates. Please feel free to add me as a friend or comment/message me. This wouldn't be possible without support! emoticon

    Good job, well done.

I don't think the double take ever goes away. I went from 250 to 150 and in the three years since, I still do the double take in the mirror.
