From a 16 to a 2, one Turkey Day apart.

Friday, November 29, 2013

So, Black Friday prompted me to make this blog post. Today, I was pretty proud of myself. I braved the crowd to head to Old Navy to buy myself some new clothes for student teaching in the spring. I never could have guessed that I'd be a size 2 now. The jeans in this picture were too tight for me last winter. These are a 14 from Old Navy. At my largest, 190, a year ago today, they were too small. That's when I realized that I was finished with that chapter of my life. So, I turned the page and never looked back.

So, on this Black Friday, I pat myself on the back. Sure, I indulged a bit on Thanksgiving. But, looking at my progress, and where I can only go from here, I am pretty darn excited!

    oh my gosh...*I'm* a 16! I was an 8 back in the Army so not sure I can get any smaller than that - they had me down to 135 then, but I felt sick all the time. But *wow* look at you!! :) Very inspiring :)

    This is amazing! emoticon

Try to go on maintenance now, you do not have any more weight to lose, If you continue to lose weight, your body might rebel and slow its metabolism.

Eat healthy and avoid junk food to remain this slim,
