Halfway to goal!

Thursday, May 22, 2014

This entry is a little late, because I was just on a 5-night Caribbean cruise. But at my last weigh-in before I left, which was the 5 month mark, I was exactly (to a tenth of a pound) at halfway to goal weight! So, since I was also so excited that I hadn't looked this nice in a dress in about 15 years, I went a little crazy with the on-board professional pics! emoticon

I have to admit, though, when I first went looking for my formal night pictures, I had trouble finding them. Why? Because I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE MYSELF! I have spent so many years HATING pictures of me that I can't believe I found some to like!

I'm so proud of my progress, and I'm happy that the timing allowed me to document my halfway milestone in this way.

36.7 more pounds to go! emoticon

    Thanks everyone!

I forgot to mention that I went on this cruise with a male friend (yes, just FRIENDS lol). Before I moved to Florida a couple of years ago, he and his best friend and I hung out together a lot. On the cruise, my friend repeatedly told me I looked pretty, then after saying it so many times, he said "Really, I'm not trying to be a smart@$$, but you were always one of the guys. I didn't realize you could get so serious about getting all dressed up!" Lol!

Then every night at dinner, he'd take a picture of me in my dresses. He said he was taking them to send to his best friend because "I bet he won't even recognize you!" emoticon
