When I went on my first date with my husband, I was 135 pounds and a size 6. (I have a lot of muscle, so I tend to be heavier than my size might "normally" indicate.) 3 years later, I went from an active job to a desk job and I quit smoking. I put on 70 pounds that year. Over the next couple years, I added another 25, for a total weight gain of 95 pounds give or take.
This morning, I weighed in at 200.6 lbs. That's about 25 pounds of weight loss, and I'm now lighter than I've been in 5 years! Wow!
Now, I've gotten close to this weight before, though, and then always lost momentum before busting back out of the 200s. That's not happening this time!
I'm getting to 199.
I'm starting my next phase.
I'm going to lose the weight.
I'm hitting the gym after work.
I'm not that girl anymore!!
And I haven't worn these pants in so long. OMG! You should see my butt. It looks fantastic. I've been taking the stairs up 10 flights every morning at work. I have a rock-star butt.
