What does 80 pounds look like? How's this:
That right there is 80 pounds in the form of eight 10-pound bags of potatoes. That's how much weight I have lost as of this morning.
Can you imagine strapping a bag on each foot, a bag on each thigh, a bag on each arm, and one on either shoulder, then going about your daily business - like walking up and down stairs to do laundry, walking across a parking lot to do grocery shopping, then coming back and lifting the groceries to bring them into the house etc.?
I can hardly imagine it, either. Except: (1) That's exactly what I was doing...hoisting all that weight around and trying to function normally (no wonder I was always tired!) and (2) I still have 60 pounds+ to go. So I have another extra 6 of those flopping around even as I type this! Yikes!
Anyway, I'm pretty freaking proud of myself. I stalled out for a solid 3 months (maybe 4?) last year, but I'm back on track and moving right along again.
