Default 90 LBS DOWN!!! (original goal)

Okay so, yesterday was a SUPER extreme yoga class (sweat was pouring, people were dropping on their mats, TEACHERS!!! were falling out of positions).

i weighed myself this morning, a flat, round 179!! no 179.1, no 179 -point-anything.

this means that i have surpassed my original goal of 180 by 1 lb.

Unfortunately i look nowhere near where i thought i would look like when i set the goal of 180, i am still overweight, and still going to push for another 25-35 lbs, which seem so easy now because it's been over 2 years and a complete lifestyle change.

unfortunately, the whole 180 thing really shows how distorted my self image was, i just didn't see how big i had gotten, which is wierd. even now, i don't see myself ANY different from when i was 90 lbs, and a size 16-18. wierd huh?


but 90 LBS???? holy firetrucking batb alls (pardon my french).

did i ever think i would lose 90 lbs? no.

did i ever think i would love eating healthy? no

did i ever think i'd be a size 6-8? NO.

i uploaded pics. the white shift/bandana is the week before i started losing weight, purple dress (i am sorry, i am NOT sober in this picture- its from a party) is the day before i started to lose weight. weighing in at 269 lbs., the black dress, was after i lost about 40-50 lbs (no toning)

the pink shirt is from pre-yoga this evening.

funny thing? i SEE MYSELF THE SAME. (that's how i see myself now).

I completely understand that. While a 6-8 in my eyes is thin on other people I wonder what I will see when I am fitting into those sizes. Your an inspiration to keep going with the healthy lifestyle changes to get to a place were you feel comfortable and confident. CONGRATS!!!!!!
