Goals and Progress

I am VERY excited to say that I weighed in today and have lost 4 lbs!!! YEAH!!! So, there was NOTHING for like 7 months, but now I finally have started losing weight!!!

These four pounds are since my weigh-in in September. Overall since the very beginning I've lost 8lbs so I am very happy that things are starting to progress......My overall goal before the wedding in February is to get down to 132lbs which is what I was back in December 2006 (My lowest weight ever)........So, basically I have 12 more pounds to go.......If I keep running and working out like I am and I keep gradually decreasing my food intake I think I can accomplish this goal. I think I found that the key for me is to GRADUALLY decrease my portion sizes so as to not put my body in shock. The other huge thing that I have given up - which I personally feel is the biggest part - is Diet Coke. I drink a ton of water now and I think that makes a big difference.

Anyway, I was really excited, so I wanted to share....Oh, and I have lost 1 1/2 inches from my thys, 1 inch from my arms, 1 inch from my waist and 1/2 in from my hips! YEAH......

YAY!!!! I'm so excited for you!! All of your hard work and perseverance is paying off! You are rocking it girl!

I think the hardest thing is getting over the plateau - once that plateau weight is broken - things seem to fall into place much faster. That's kind of what I've been experiencing with this journey. Before I started the blog in April, I sat around 157ish for quite awhile. It was like my body just refused to let go of the weight regardless of what I tried. Then one day, my body was like - "fine - I'll let go of that weight."

I think you are doing really really awesome! Your are truly an inspiration! I can't wait to see pictures of the bridesmaid dress in February!

Love you girl!
