Weigh In: .6 lb Loss




166.4 lbs

This is beginning to get very exciting for me. I am 20.4 lbs away from a HEALTHY weight range. Can you believe it? We are getting close, people!

(yes, I do remember that it took me 7 months to lose 5 pounds.)

It's just that 20 lbs! Well, 20 lbs just seems so normal. Such a "doable" amount to tackle. I guess because when I started out the number I was faced with was 80! 80 lbs to a "healthy" range. 80 seems a lot more intimidating than 20! Know what I mean?

Just a few other numbers...

Current BMI-28.6
Starting BMI-39.4

Current jeans size: 10 (loose)
Starting jeans size: 22 (tight)

I will be super excited to reach the healthy weight range! I do have a small to medium build, so as of now I will still be working toward my ultimate goal of weighing 129 lbs which is smack-dab in the middle of my healthy weight range. (that will be one hundred pounds lost.)

Do I believe it will happen? Uh, YEAH I do.

I have to say I've been feeding myself pretty well these days. Here are a few parting shots of my two ultimate breakfasts and a pizza I made today...

Go, beautiful! That's a good loss. The closer you are to "healthy" and "goal," the harder it is for your body to lose. It's just a natural fact. You're doing fantastic and the fact that you shaved all those numbers off your BMI is truly inspirational and wonderful!

I love it!

P.S. Can't WAIT to weigh 166! I'm proud of you for getting there!

I think I have commented like 2 - maybe 3 times the entire time I ahve read your blog. I just want you to know that you inspire me. I just reached non obese BMI this last weekend and it has totally spurred me on. I feel like it is finally a reality that I can be 'normal' again. You have really encouraged me to battle my sin of overeating! Thanks!
