Talking First 25 pounds gone!

Well, today was the official weigh-in day for me. It turns out I'm down 25 pounds so far! Which means that I'm almost 1/3 of the way to goal, and I've also lost more than 10% of my starting body weight! I've gotten smaller in the measurements, too... 3.25 inches in the bust, 5.75 inches in the waist, and 3 inches in the hips. (12 inches overall) I wish I had started measuring my thighs and biceps when I started, too, but these are the only ones that I have, unfortunately.

My goal was to lose 33 pounds by the time my brother came to visit me, but it looks like I'm going to be about 5-8 pounds shy of that goal. Oh well, even if I didn't meet my goal, I still did pretty well! I have until Saturday to lose a bit more, anyway.

I've decided to set a HUGE new goal for myself, too... When I lose 50 pounds, I will buy myself a new TV. The one I have now is terribly old, and it's starting to make a crackling noise when I watch it (I am afraid it's going to set my house alight!)... So, I'm halfway there... And 1/3 of the way to being able to wear the red bridesmaid's dress without fear of making everyone nauseous.

Yay! You're doing so great and I'm sure you'll look (and feel) fantastic in the bridesmaid dress... well, as fantastic as it's possible to feel in a bridesmaid dress, anyway... shudder...

Thanks for the cheers of support, everyone! It actually does make me feel like I'm capable of losing the rest of it, honestly. I mean, I've never before actually lost 25 pounds in one try, so I'm much less likely to let it go now! Thanks to everyone here for giving me a kick in the butt when I need it and keeping me going!

Congratulations.You are very pretty. You are doing a great job. Remember how this feels so that when you feel like eatting something you shouldn't you just have to think back. "Is this worth gainning weight for?'

That is fantastic!! So much weight lost, so many inches gone, in your pictures you look so much happier, and you're so close to breaking the 200 mark! I am officially inspired.

Thanks so much for the lovely compliments and the cheers of support! YAY! It makes me want to KEEP GOING! I've been so inspired by everyone else's success every day that it makes it a lot easier for me to stay on track. When I feel like just cheating a little and having a pop or a cheeseburger or something else yummy, I think..."now, I'd be really disappointed with myself if I had to report back to everyone else that I'd eaten a cheeseburger, when I know everyone else is trying so hard to do the right thing..."

I know that might sound really cheesy, but it's totally true. Not only do I gain inspiration here, I also feel like I've gained lots and lots of accountability partners! Thanks for the help everyone!

I know what you mean, Aerotiger! I almost feel I'm letting everyone here down, along with myself, if I don't succeed!

Congrats! You're doing great!
