Getting so close


Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I've been hovering between 199 and 203 the past two weeks. Kind of frustrating when I feel like a 4 lb yoyo. But there is great news on the horizon. You see, I have a goal skirt. I thought I wouldn't be able to fit into it until I was 165, but look at me at 202 as of today and getting so close to being able to wear it. It is only a fraction of an inch too small. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH so close!

Here I am in the skirt 5 years ago:



But I know I'm looking great even at where I am now. I'm shopping at my favorite store again (Ann Taylor LOFT) and not looking back! I'm solidly in a size 14 right now. If I keep it up, I could be a size 12 by Christmas!

Here I am in a cute dress for a wedding this last week in Las Vegas:



I know that with as slow as the weight is coming off, I'm doing this right. 1 to 2 lbs a week is what they say and I've definitely been creeping along at 1 lb a week on average. In January it will be 1 year since I started on this great loss stretch! If I can be down 52 lbs by then, I will have reached a wonderful goal! 1 lb a week for a year!

    I can't seem to get out of the 220s. Totally understand. Jillian Michaels and Danni Allen (winner of season 14 of the biggest loser) are my inspiration. Danni lost 121 pounds during season 14 and Jillian has a rockin body that I want. She's my height so it makes me feel I can have the same body as her.

    I understand about the yoyo thing. I've been losing the same 5 pounds for months now. I'm only down about 15 pounds in the past year but it still is better than being up.

Your dresses are cute and you look great. It is terrific that you can shop in your favorite store again. You are really showing us how to be successful.

    Girl, I can so relate. Arriving in onederland is great, but then it seems we do the bounce-- up a couple down a couple. Clothes are a wonderful motivator! Love the blue dress and that goal skirt rocks! You can do this!!
