Red face There's 50 Pounds Less of Me

Hi folks. This was a really big weekend for me.

Saturday night we had a community fundraiser at which I was a volunteer. I knew there would be many people I haven't seen in a long time. I was so nervous, couldn't help wondering if anybody would notice I'd lost weight. The only problem was we had to wear white shirts and dark bottoms. I had to go buy a new white shirt and I did, but it was white and I felt so horrible that for my first night out seeing people I would be stuck wearing white. White shirt and all about 10 different people asked me if I lost weight! And a few of them even asked me how I lost the weight. This is all so new to me.

And Sunday was my birthday and I woke up and stepped on the scale and there it was 236 pounds, I have now lost 51 pounds, I still can't believe it, my first big chunk gone. I never want to see any of those 51 pounds ever again! Goodbye, good riddance, adios.

Thanks for listening today and always, I truly believe that 3fc and all of you gals (and the ocassional guy) has played an important role in my success so far.

P.S. I also want to change my name from "fed"up to something else, anyone know how to change a name, and if so am I better off just leaving it so people will know who I am?

What an affirming evening that was for you! Good for you!

Great birthday present to yourself.....those self-given birthday presents are the best, because they mean you are treating yourself the way you deserve to be treated....with self-care.

Onward and downward!!!!!

CONGRATS! Doesn't it feel great to lose the equilivent of a 4-year old? I've referred to my weight loss as "two toddlers" to other people - especially mommys.

What have YOU done today to make you feel proud?GO BLUE!!!!

What a wonderful birthday present to yourself. Way to go

About the white t-shirt and dark pants: you were dressed like everyone else and still stood out. Take some time and enjoy your success--treat yourself to a new pair of pants or something!

Congratulations on hitting the 50 lb mark.

I believe you can PM a moderator and they can help you change your name and keep your posts intact with your new name. I know I've seen posts in the help section where Suzanne has assisted with that, if the mods can't.

160 lbs lost!
