I went from zero to my own hero.

Monday, September 30, 2013

Hello Sparkies, welcome to another week! I am happy to report that as of yesterday, I have officially lost 50 pounds! I'm still blown away by it, and I actually keep crying over it, because I can't believe that I found the dedication to lose that much weight. I am now officially halfway to my goal of losing 100 pounds (possibly more, but that's my major goal, and I'll decide if I want more once I know how I look). I am now officially 3 pounds away from my lowest recorded adult weight of 184 that I hit in 2011. I am hoping to reach that by next weigh in, but if not, then hopefully the one after that. If I keep it up at this steady rate, I have the potential to be in the 170s by my birthday (Thanksgiving), and possibly even the 160s by the end of the year. But if not, I will just keep pushing! As long as the scale is moving downwards, I will be happy.

Here's a few wonderful things that have changed since I've lost 50 pounds..
*i went from a size 20 work pants to a size 16 (probably actually need a 14, as my 16s are way too baggy now). I also stopped ripping them, which is a huge thing considering I ripped almost 4 pair of work pants before losing weight because I was so fat.
*I went from a size 18 jeans to a size 14 (loose).
*i went from an XXL shirt to a L
* I went down 2 underwear sizes
*I can do yoga
*i can squat down and move around quickly and pop back up from a squatting position while at work with no problems (at 237, if I squatted down, I was stuck. I would also rip my pants.)
*I can wear a belt again
*My knees don't hurt nearly as bad anymore
*I feel INCREDIBLE.. And this isn't even the end.

I am so proud of myself that words can't explain. The outpouring of support from people around me is amazing. People at work keep telling me how awesome I look. A lot of people on FB are telling me I'm doing amazing. It's weird, but I like it. It makes me know that I'm definitely changing and doing something right. I'm halfway to my ultimate goal, and I know that I WILL make it this time. There is NO way I'm stopping now. I will be a sexy vixen by Vegas next year, just you watch me!
And now for the picture proof. Left pictures are 237 pounds, right pictures are 187 pounds.






So yeah! I'm quite proud of myself, and. I will continue to work my butt off, both literally and figuratively! I can only imagine how wonderful I will feel another 50 pounds down!

Have a wonderful and productive week sparkles!

I would give you a bowtie because bowties are cool but they don't have an emoticon for that!

    So absolutely incredible. Like, beyond words incredible. I'm so insanely happy for you, I can completely understand those awesome emotions you're feeling. There is no limit to what you can accomplish from here on out. Go for it, always. Bottle up the love you're feeling and use it to push you on everyday, to make the choices you know need to be made. I'm so insanely proud of you. :-)

    I LOVE being able to squat down and get back up again. Makes playing with/seeing to kids so much easier. I blogged about it recently as it was the first time in years that I was able to do that! Amazing achievements for you. Well done
