LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! (And any other cows besides me out there!) I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE!!!!!!!!!!
This morning I weighed myself and I am a pound and a half to my next goal... which means I am 5-10 pounds away from phase 3!!
When I started this journey in February of 2009 I weighed MORE than I weighed at the end of my pregnancy with TWINS! So although I said I only wanted to lose 12 pounds, I was just embarrassed to admit how much I weighed and how much I needed to lose!
I looked in the mirror this morning and realized that I can see the scar from the surgery to remove my tumor without lifting up my stomach! I can sit on the toilet before hopping in the shower and NOT feel my stomach on my thighs!! (I hated that!) I don't look pregnant any more! And no more sweating under the folds of skin! WOOOHOOO!!
I didn't do this journey because of how others viewed me, or how I looked or for what clothes I could wear. I personally do not see overweight people as looking unattractive. I did it to FEEL good inside, and to be healthy. I hated being tired and depressed and feeling "gross" (sick) from eating crappy junk food. Although I sure love the taste of some of that junk food! LOL
I am almost there. And I know I can do it .... I can't wait!
