week 30

I'm at 84 pounds! The weight is definately not coming off as fast. I have to start exercising and getting back on track. I'm not going to lie, I've been slacking off lately, but I am beyond happy with my results. 

I've been asked a lot recently how will I STOP losing. I really don't know!  I'm guessing increasing my calories but I guess I'll find out at my appointment in a few weeks. I really want to hit 100 lbs though! It was never really a goal until recently, now that I am so close I want to do it! I will be at a normal BMI and I just really want to get there!

I took the kids to a pumpkin patch today and actually climbed hay bales and ran around with them. Last year I would have never been able to do that! I have totally improved the quality of my life. Here's a few pics from today. We've been to this pumpkin patch the last 3 years and I do not have one single picture of ME. It's so different now because I actually like how I look and want to be in pictures!

week 28

81.8 pounds! It is still so exciting to see the scales drop. Surprisingly they are still dropping! I pretty much eat whatever I want these days, trying to make better choices, but I don't follow the diet exactly like I should. I need to get my butt on the treadmill so I can lose even more!!!

week 27

79.4 pounds gone! Can't believe I'm almost at the 80 mark. Overall I'm feeling great. I have been having some dizzy spells but I think I let myself get dehydrated again. I've got to get a grip on that! I am able to eat more at one setting but it's no where near how much I could eat before. For example, 1/2 of a sandwich fills me up. 

I went shopping for some fall and winter clothes and could not be more excited with what I bought. I can now wear a size 10 jeans! I was in an embarrassing size of 18/20 before surgery. I also bought a few medium sweaters. I don't think I've worn a medium or a 10 since my freshman year in high school! It feels so great!

Here's a few of my most recent pics.

Doesn't even look like the same girl! Orlando went and got himself a new wife!

I don't feel like the "fat" friend anymore. Not that they ever made me feel that way but when your best friends are these skinny beautiful girls it's hard not to!

That sweater is a size medium!
