So I have had multiple accomplishments that I thought I should post about because I'm losing a bit of steam after losing so much and still not being where I want.
But I realize I didn't gain it all over night so why would I lose it all over night.

I came back to 3fatchicks and livestrong on May 13th and haven't looked back.
I was 223.6 and newly married, after seeing family and taking photos together I realized I just couldn't look at myself!

I was eating want ever I wanted and often and it was showing!
I made it up to a tight 18, 46 hips.

My first goal was to lose the regain I left it off at 186 and have surpassed it by 13 pounds so far :) I weigh less than I did in high school (180) which was another one.
I got out of the obese bmi and into the over weight which will soon be gone as well!
I lost 6 inches in my hips and just bought sizes 13-15 pants.
I'm very confused about what sizes to buy and found xl shirts not showing off all my hard work the way I wanted and found I look good in a large!

I made a goal at 192 to lose 15 pounds (to get to 177) by Christmas and it's the 6th of December and I'm 173.6 as of this morning!

I was having trouble seeing it in myself, I look in the mirror and still see the imperfections and pinch the fat.
I am a work in progress but I am and have always been beautiful and worth this, so much like all of you wonderful people!

I tried on my wedding dress last night and it was slipping right off of me.
Now that felt good!
When I make it to 160 I will have to remember to take comparison photos of me in the dress then and now.

Keep holding on everyone! We are worth it!
