S/C/G: 256/see ticker/156

Height: 5'2 and a freakin' HALF!

Default Really?!?! I did it?!? Me?? 50lbs?!

Woke up yesterday and saw I was a pound away from 50lbs lost... couldn't WAIT til next week when I'd hit that 50lb mini-goal..... then was shocked this morning when I woke up to ANOTHER lb gone (my metabolism cracks me up... can't lose a pound for a week then they like... fall off instantly, sometimes in clumps)......


Seriously? I mean, really? Me???

It only took me from 2006 to 2008 to lose the first 10 to 15lbs.... and the past 4 1/2 months to lose the rest!!

The thing about it though?

I know I can do this for the rest of my life. It's like I've come out of the dark and realized which way I'm going. Because of this.... I feel like the world is my oyster. My weight was the one thing that always made me doubt myself... if I couldn't control that... who's to say what else I couldn't handle? But now that I know I can do it... and it's EASY (for the most part)...... watch OUT world! Here I come!! It's almost scary... I've always had a high level of self esteem... even being the "fat girl".... I might just be an unstoppable force healthy!

PS - Just want to say thank you to 3FC, I don't know if I could have gotten on my feet without you guys! I've learned so much here!

PPS - Sorry the new photos are kinda blurry, took them on my webcam because I still feel randomly weird asking people to take pictures of me for this reason.... the ones from August were taken at my friend homecoming party.... so that's why I included them, though I've lost 6lbs since then.... I could NOT let this milestone go undocumented though!
