Progess Makes Me Happy


The highest weight I have listed on the sidebar of my blog is 229 lbs. I am pretty sure I was over that in the "before" pictures above. Not exactly a time I wanted to jump on the scales everyday. Know what I'm sayin'?

Today I decided to put on that lovely striped shirt again and see what a difference 34 (or a little more?) pounds can make. A big one, apparently.





These are my beloved 12's. Isn't it funny how I am so excited to be in these today and pretty soon they will be on the ground like my 18's are now? I love it!



Pardon the "rear view" but I had to show off the silver sparkle on the pockets of my new jeans. Back pocket decoration: not something I've given much thought to in the past. Back pocket decoration nowadays? Yes, please.



Tomorrow night I will post weigh-in and measurements update after my FP4H meeting. I am getting measured for the first time in 10 weeks! Super excited!



These are the lyrics of a Chris Tomlin song. They spoke so loudly to me this morning.

Take my life and let it be consecrated Lord, to thee. Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise. Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of thy love. Take my feet and let them be swift and beautiful for thee.

I hope this is a fabulous week for you, my friends!

WOW! What an amazing difference that 34 pounds made! I'm astounded.

I've lost 30 pounds--and my difference is no where near that! I've gotta start working out. And maybe lose about 20 years. chuckle.

You look magnificent! congratulations!

You look adorable! Amazing progress!! I can't wait for you to share your new measurements. Your body has completely changed since you were last measured. So is it wrong for me to call dibs on those cute 12's once they hit the ground??!! :)

Congrats, lady! I wish I would have thought to take pictures before I started at the gym in February. I ran today. For the first time in my adult life. RAN! Three 60 second spots in my 45 minutes walk. But I ran. How cool is that? I hope to put on my size 12's sometime...
