10% of my body... gone.

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I've been super busy with school. Anyway, here are my stats, as usual:

HW: 226
SW: 212
CW: 190!!
GW: 150

I'm at 190 now :) Only 40 more lbs til I reach my goal of 150. I hit a plateau for about a week, but I think it was because it was "that time of the month" (I know, overshare) and it was Mardi Gras. I'm back on track now, though, and it feels good.

The only bad thing is that I'm losing clothes. I've had to retire 3 pairs of jeans (I really liked them!) and a few shirts. But on the other hand, i'm getting some new clothes that fit me now, when they didn't before, so that's cool. Also, I was walking out of the gym yesterday and ran into a friend, and the first thing she said after saying Hey was You're looking so good! And when I went to visit my parents I got a compliment, too. At first I was wearing a jacket, but when I took it off and had a fitted Tshirt on my dad was like "Wow you really have lost weight... how much?" I told him About 20-25 lbs, and he was shocked.

So, that was a lot of bragging, I know. But I have gotten some useful information. The biggest thing I've learned so far is that you have to be in the right mindset before you can successfully do this (lost weight). You have to be healthy on the inside before you can work on the outside. It's like, before you go and get a new paint job on your car, you should probably fix the engine first, because that's more important.

Good luck to all who are reading this and going through the same thing, and I'll try to update soon. Hopefully I'll be in the 180s soon! I'm so damn close!

I broke 200!

Today when I went shopping at Walmart, I finally bought a digital scale like I've been meaning to. I set it up tonight and I just couldn't resist trying it out. I know it's bad to weigh at night and such, but I was just so damn curious! So, I stepped on the scale, to find that it said 198.4! Under 200!!! My jaw dropped and I was like WOOOOOHOOO! My roommate thought I was nuts, but then she high-fived me when I told her about it.

Highest Weight (HW): 226
Starting Weight (SW): 212
Current Weight (CW): 198.4
Goal Weight (GW): 150

The only bad thing is that sometimes success scares me. It means that if I fail, it'll feel even worse because I know what good things I'm capable of. It's just so weird to see my weight start with a 1 instead of a 2. Now watch... I'll wake up tomorrow morning and it'll be back up to 201... I'll be so pissed. But whatever!

I also "went shopping in my closet" as I told my mom. I went through and found the things that I used to say "I'm too fat to wear that." Some stuff fit again (some stuff didn't, but what can you do). I feel like I got new clothes, but really I just got old ones back. I'm definitely not a size 8 yet, but I'm somewhere between a 14 and a 16, depending on what store we're talking about. And 16s used to be tight!

My only hope is that I can continue my success. 48.4 more pounds to go! Haha...
