Wait A Sec...

Don't look now, but I think my boobs are actually sticking out farther than my tummy! :-)

Back in the late 80's I remember a friend's father telling me that a woman isn't fat until her tummy sticks out farther than her chest. It's kind of funny the things we hold on to throughout our lives. That's always been one of them. Well, well, well, Mr. Smith...guess what! It took over two decades, but I finally did it!  Hooray!

This is a pretty big day for me.  I'm about to reveal some of the information I've held back.

When I started this whole "year of me" I was wearing a size 30/32 top and size 30 pants.  I passed through the 28's, 26's, 24's and currently own a bunch of 22's (the jeans are 22's.)  The top, however, that I bought two days an 18/20!  Holy Shrinking Violet, Batman!

I'm ALMOST halfway there.  I have lost 65 pounds.  I actually am going for a total loss of 140 pounds.

I have already lost the equivalent of a typical 8-10 year old.  By the end of the year I will have lost a whole woman.  Unfreakingbelievable.

I have been so busy these days that blogging is really hard.  I have around 200 linear feet of garden to water, weed and love every morning, a house that is seriously organized, clean, pretty and a priority, a son who plays baseball and is otherwise very active, and ohhhhh yeah...about 90 minutes of commuting each day to and from my full time job and oh yeah, the whole single mom and homeowner thing.  Since all the other priorities are straight, blogging  has taken a bit of a back seat.

I had a two week hiatus from working out and started back at it yesterday (my abs may never forgive me for putting them through this again!).  I plan to do weight training 3 times per week and cardio 5 times.  I'm getting so close to my family reunion in August I don't want to slow down now!  I'll still be several months away from the actual goal come August, but I want to feel like I've done all I can up until that point.

Also, my high school friends are making an impromptu mini reunion while I'm in town (how cool is that?)  I haven't seen many of them since I graduated in 1983!  So that's all the more incentive to keep it going.  My new goal is to lose another 20 before August 6th.  You think I can do it?

You think anything can stop me?

  2. Thanks for the compliment. I want to lose another 75-80. The charts tell me I should. ;-) But if I get down, say, another 50 and feel fabulous, I'll stop right there! :-)

    I can't wait to see you in August! Keep going. I on the other hand NEED to find the push, the drive and the want that you have. You are an inspiration ♥ Deb

  6. Two months to the mini reunion, Deb...I can't wait either. I haven't seen most of you since '83! My push/drive/want didn't "stick" until it stopped being about losing weight and looking good and truly became about being healthy and active. There was a mindshift...hard to describe. I think I'll make my next blog post about it! (thanks for the idea!)


Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
