Well, I said when I finally saw the under side of 150, it was going to be PARTY TIME! Well, it's here! And I'm 3 lbs from my goal weight, although I intend to continue to try to tone & improve myself physically. (my lower half still needs more work--haha)(But I feel alot stronger than when I started, & my arms actually have a teensy bit of shape!) I started at 185 back in Feb 2004 & am now at 148!! Technically, I've lost more than 37 lbs - I gained 9 or 10 in the summer & had to lose it AGAIN. (fool for punishment you know..haha) It took me awhile, but here I am. I hovered around the 154-155 mark for quite awhile this year & finally got SICK OF IT & decided it was time to get SERIOUS. I KNEW how to do this & knew I COULD do it. That was the key - DO IT. I think the hardest thing for me is giving up Friday night pizza buffet with my family. I just flat had to say NO. I've come to the conclusion lately that what I heard Denise Austin say is true: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels". And the older expression, "A moment on the lips, forever on the hips". I mean, it seemed like I'd eat the bad food....and then it was gone. The experience was over. And here I'd sit with my saddlebags & belly, going "Was that really WORTH IT?!"
Ok enough for now. Just had to share the victory, & say "It CAN be done". Even if you mess up, it can still be done, it just takes a little longer.
(I have some jeans that look like the above pic, too!)
