My goal was to lose 100 pounds by November 15. I’m going to show a picture of the scale, so I guess I could come totally clean and tell you that in the middle of last November I weighed in at a whopping 354 pounds. Holy crap. It was amazing how quickly that weight had crept up on me.
There have been two weights since then that have made me smile:
299-to be under 300
278-to weigh less than Jenn (who is 6 inches shorter than me)
And then yesterday morning. I had been stuck with 4 pounds to go for over a week. I was starting to get scared that I wasn’t going to reach my goal. Then, I had a whole lot to drink this past weekend, and I was scared that was going to add weight. But I stepped onto the scale, counted to 15 and looked down to see this:
I screamed. And no one was home to hear it. So I texted that picture to Lyz and my mom. They were both excited!!
**in the effort of being fully honest, the first time I stepped on the scale it said 251.3, but I didn’t have my phone on me to take a picture. Apparently I gained .9 pounds in the walk from Lyz’s bathroom to my bathroom**
So there we have it. My next goal is 220 by Valentine’s day. I’ll be at the gym if you need me!
