Nearly There!!

Today was a new milestone for my weight loss.  I never thought I’d ever, in my life, be here…but today I stepped on the scale and was down 50 pounds from where I started last year!  Holy crap, 50 pounds is huge!  I feel SO much better.  Better about myself, better physically and emotionally…just all around better.  I still have 3 more pounds until I hit my goal weight, but I’m hopeful that I’ll be there by the time we go to Seattle in a few weeks.  Normally, I wouldn’t even question it, but I’ll be traveling next week for work, and I always gain weight when I go on work trips.  It’s like the stress of working externally, combined with long hours and eating, all contribute to me gaining at least a few pounds.  We’ll see.

On top of the weight loss, I decided to take my measurements as well.  Back when J and I were doing the “Biggest Loser” challenge in the NL, we took measurements over nearly every thing we could.  Biceps, thighs, waist, hips, calves, neck, and chest.  This time around, I only took measurements on hips and waist, because I was lazy.  That said…I took new measurements today and I was super excited with the results!

Loss So Far

Hips:  7.5 inches
Waist: 10 inches

Body Fat: 12%

TOTAL WEIGHT LOST:  50 pounds!!

I plan on doing a “before/after” photo once I reach my goal, which hopefully isn’t that far from now.  I’m a little unsure whether I want to post the photo, because it’s me in a bathing suit.  I’m shy like that!  So yeah…we’ll see.  In the meantime, I’ll keep you posted!

Much love,
