Mini-Goals - 75 pounds down
05-29-2011, 06:55 PM
I dont think I've made enough posts to be allowed to post pictures yet, but I've lost 75 pounds total so far. I'm pretty excited to hit that milestone, and as rewards to myself I did a couple things... first I got rid of all my old clothes. I should say almost all... I kept three items. A pair of jeans, a shirt, and a hoodie, that all used to be snug, so I could continue to use them as reference items for the days I don't believe any of this is real.
So yesterday the other thing I did for myself was, I put on the hoodie and had my best friend snap a few pictures of it wrapped around me, so I could compare it to the picture I have of myself in it when it fit.... So good to see that with my eyes, it's all still so weird in my head sometimes. My mind and self image are still catching up to my actual body and weight loss.

thank you! It's taken a long time! I started in Jan 2010 with small changes and lost 60 pounds, and didn't go low carb until just about a month ago.

Now that I can post pics, I think I've been able to for a while and have been slacking, I thought I'd put up these pictures from that 75 pound mark.
