Default Bring on the next ten! 41 pounds lost!

I weighed in today, losing a little over 3 pounds, bringing my total to 41 pounds in 10 weeks! It was a hard week, with some personal challenges, so I'm very happy that I didn't let it derail me, like I used to do. Use your anger for fuel! That's one of my new mottos. Take it out on the elliptical!

I'm super excited to get to 50 pounds. My goal is to make it before Halloween, and I'm pretty sure that I'll make it. I've got almost 6 weeks and I've lost at least 2 pounds every week, so I'm right on target! I think that I'll be "treating" myself with a new Harvey's seatbelt bag when I get there, so that's my incentive! (I've morphed into a seatbelt bag addict over the last year, but it's better that fast food!)

I went shopping for a workout tank top this evening, since my T-shirts that I've been using are getting too big and baggy. I had to buy a tank that was 2 sizes smaller than what I had been wearing! And I also had to go down another size in my jeans ( I tried them on just to check and they actually fit!). Dang.....I might become a woman who LOVES to shop for clothes!

That is just amazinggggg! Could you pretty please advise me on what you did to lose the weight? I'm trying to lose about 46lbs myself, though I'm giving myself much more time!
