Mini-Goals - Lost 30 pounds!
07-13-2006, 06:01 PM
This is my first time posting in this forum - I guess because I never really thought I have done much to be proud of - but really I have!
Today is not my weigh in, but I am counting this anyway. As of this morning I am down 30.6 pounds! I won't be changing my ticker until my weigh in day (Saturday) but I still have to dance around today because 30 pounds is HUGE! I am so proud of myself for coming this far. This is the most weight that I have EVER lost and I can't believe it.
This morning I put a shirt on, a shirt that has been too big for a while, but today it was HUGE - I was going to change into something that fit better, but I thought "I might as well wear it one last time." It is great when I look in the mirrior and see how HUGE this shirt is on me, but at the same time I am a little sad I can't wear it anymore (weird, huh?).
Anyway I have just felt really good all day and I wanted to share it :)

Let me be the first to say congratulations. Wow, 30 pounds is a lot of pounds. remember when you used to get so frustrated because the weight was coming off too slow. And now, look at you. I'm proud of you for hanging in there. You've been doing awesome and I know it's just going to get better from here for you.

Courtnie--I always like reading your posts.
And, go see if you can find the same shirt in a smaller size!
30 lbs. is BIG TIME great. Go stack up 30 lbs. of butter and see what it looks like!

Just wanted to say thanks! And yes, I do tend to complain when my 'weight loss' seems slow but I think I am over the complaining - this is the weigh I remember myself so anything from here on in (well just about) is the lightest I remember (almost! I remember be 174).
As for the shirt, I bought it at a plus sized store - I don't think they make it any smaller! And it isn't my favourte shirt, I just hate wasteing perfectly good clothing! I think when I am all done I am going to donate everything to a women's shelter or something.

Congratulations, that's wonderful : ) And I know what you mean about being disappointed you can't wear your shirt anymore. Tonight I pulled off my favorite pants without unbuttoning them and I know it's not going to be long before they won't stay up at all. They're only two months old and I love them! But I will love being healthier more, and so will you.
You go girl!!! That is GREAT!!!

Thanks guys - it is nice to know that people like reading my useless posts! I will definatly get myself some new shirts soon. I have a new pair of a jeans and a pink hoodie (soo cute) hanging in my closet waiting for me to hit 180! I am also getting myself a puppy (well my boyfriend is helping too as a birthday present). My puppy is a treat to myself for hard work (and my birthday).
I do have a couple pics laying around of me after 20 pounds - maybe one of these days I will feel brave and post them here! They were posted in another thread awhile ago, but I never posted them for everyone.
I can't wait to change my ticker on Saturday!

I am so happy to see that you are doing so well.
Just a few short weeks ago me, you, Aimee and Rosario were so frustrated because Stevi and JT were losing so fast. Now look at you go.
It sounds like things are going great.
A new house, a new puppy on the way and you losing weight and feeling great.
Good for you.
Keep up the good work.

MelodyL - you have lost 30 pounds too, I hope you gave youself a good pat on the back as well!
Leec - Everything has been going so great all at once. A new place to live, 30 pounds gone, a raise a working, getting a new puppy - I can't believe it. I think this is the happiest I have been in years. Yes and it wasn't that long ago I was complaing about other people losing to fast and now I am losing so fast I can't even believe it is happening. I know it can't keep going as fast as it is, but I will enjoy it for now :) You are doing great too, look at you! I left you post in your thread in the support forum!
