I too have been going up and down the scale...mostly because of the new food allergies, then the medications, and my indiscretion while out of town. I'm up , but definitely on my way down. Since I have been home, there have been no indiscretions...my fridge and freezer are stocked with the necessary foods.
When I weighed friday, I was between 202 and 203. I'm looking to be in ONEderdand again before long. My goal this week is to do so.
I think I started at about a size 22 (very tight) and now I am wearing a 16 (also tight). I'm looking like the AMAZON that my husband loved from the start. My legs are thinning nicely, and since I've pretty much been on a stall, the skin has had a better chance to shrink (sounds disgusting, but you all know what I am talking about). Having lost over 45 pounds, I think I am getting a little taller. I used to be 5'11", but with surgery and gaining weight, I lost some height. I think I am 5'10, but I haven't measured since I started this woe. I don't own a tape measure, but I'm not worried about the inches I have lost...they are what they are...I know that I need to weigh between 165 and 170 to get to a healthy weight. My BMI has dropped from 36 to 29...I am in the overweight category as opposed to the obese category. No matter how you slice it, I am FAT...but it's only a "suit" I am wearing for the moment, and I totally intend to shed it as quickly and sensibly as I can.
Hubby is also doing well with this program. I am so proud for him. I'm either going to have to follow him, or get a bat for him to beat all the younger women off!!! I have more to lose than he does, but I will not tell him that until I have lost all of my weight. Aren't I vain??? LOL
Falling off the wagon is not an alternative for me. I am so close to my goal weight. No more sabotaging all the good work that I have done. No excuses are viable. I am on this wagon for the long run, and I am here WITH and FOR all of you.
Remember...you are the daughter of the Heavenly King...that makes you a Princess!!! Feel like one...look like one...carry yourself like one!!!
