Weigh In: 5 lb. Loss



Yes, that's right--5 pounds this week. If you recall I had a couple of stagnant weeks just before this so while I am surprised at the huge loss I can understand why. But enough analyzing...

I have lost 42 lbs, people! I have lost 27 inches! I am in the 180's! I am less than 20 pounds away from getting the heck out of the O-Zone (obese BMI range)! I'm practically HALF way to goal! I'm on top of the world.

Rabbit Trail: Several of you have made comments that it doesn't look like I weigh what I actually weigh. People are always asking me my height and when they find out I'm 5'4" they can't believe it. I figured out why. I have freakishly small legs and a freakishly large stomach. My legs are about the same size as my mom who wears a size 2 and my waist is probably bigger around than my dad's who is 6'4". I'm a freak. I always take pics from straight on so you don't really notice the huge baby in front. I will do a post later this week with some "REAL" pics of my nasty stomach that looks like a baby is inside it. Just so ya'll will understand! You'll be wishing you never brought it up...

Now, on to the NSV's

  • I weigh 187 lbs!!!!!!! Oh wait, that is a scale thing....
  • I ran 2 miles yesterday.
  • I wore something that fit me in 2001 yesterday.

I need you to pray for my husband. I need him to gain some weight. (Just kidding about the praying part) Seriously though, I really want to weigh less than him and he keeps losing weight, the little weasel. Not on purpose but he is working out more, which is good, and the pounds are just coming off. He is 6' and weighs 170. GAG me with a spoon. I'll catch him though.

Friday is shopping day for goal reward. Whohoo! I'm going with my pal who is working toward a goal also. I know she will hit it by Friday so we can go get our cute new outfits from a real store (ie. not a store that you have to dig through the clothes like it is a garage sale). If you were paying attention to my rewards list, this is supposed to be the mani/pedi and haircut reward, but you see, I have this horrible problem...

NOTHING FITS! :)

What you gonna do? I'm goin' shopping.

Laura said...

Congrats on the awesome loss! When I was setting my goal weight a major part of me wants to be 10 pounds less than my husband, which means I would need to weigh 145. Well, I set my goal weight at 154 and asked my husband if he would mind gaining 10 pounds for me :) :) :)

Sherry said...

you amaze me! 6 pounds in one week?! I was JUST banded 3.5 weeks ago and I've only lost 9 pounds total! BTW, you are a hottie girl! And with some awesome fashion sense.

Nicole @ Let Them Eat Lettuce said...

LOL your comment about your hubby made me laugh. Mine has also lost like 20 pounds since I started all this healthy eating stuff. URG! Why do men have it so easy? I am happy that I weigh less than him, but I think this is the first time in our marriage that this is true!

Mandy said...

You are awesome! The End.

Jen said...

SO awesome Keelie, you are keeping me going thru this nasty, nasty plateau!! Good for you. And girl, you are an apple! As a pear I would KILL for your tiny legs!! I might have a waist but my thighs are the same inches as my mother's waist. And we are the same height. You are looking awesome so enjoy it!! And enjoy that clothes shopping too, you deserve it after all this hard work.

I have a tummy/bigger middle too. Mine is a hernia. I have a round little ball there. Seems to be getting more noticeable as I lose weight. Someone thought I was pregnant. "Uh no, I'm 45 years old, guys!" lol.

You do look AWESOME!!! Hope you found something CUTE to wear. Bring it back here and be sure to model for us.
