I'd like for you all to take a moment and notice that weight loss ticker says 18 pounds lost. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I'm so excited :) I forgot to update it last week, but wow, it feels good.
I haven't been measuring myself, but I can see the changes. I'm currently a size 14 and L/XL kind of girl, but not for long! I'm almost in the 160's! I haven't been in the 160's since I was in the Navy! I was 175 when I got pregnant-I weigh less than that now!
So lets see, when I joined the Navy I was sittin in the 150's, then I learned to spend money on food and gained about 10 lb's before I went in. I almost didn't get to go in because of my weight! Ouch! I lost 11 lb's in boot camp and was pretty happy. The jiggle went away. Then I got married and started packin it on. I gained it all back, then some. I never ever made weight with the Navy, but by meaurement I did make it...whew! When I got pregnant I was 175ish and when I delivered I was 206! I got back down to the high 170's then got out of the Navy. Came home and became a lard ass. I ballooned up to 197. Ouch. I tried Weight Watchers and lost 10 pounds but decided to stop doing it because I would figure out how much crap I could fit into my point level each day. I kept those pounds off for about 10 months and decided I wanted to wear a bikini like everyone else.
My 25th birthday was coming up and I wanted to look hot...so I started losing weight. So, in July 2008 I weighed 197. July 2009 I weighed in the high 180's and now in November 2009 (the 18th to be exact) I weigh 171 pounds.
I consider myself an adrenaline junkie, but let me tell you-there is no rush greater than putting on a pair of jeans that are a little snug and having them slide right on. There is no rush greater than not having a shirt be so tight-that it actually fits appropriately. Screw sky diving for a rush, I'm getting skinny!
