Yep, you have read that right....42 freaking lbs gone!!!
I have been MIA for awhile and I am sorry for that! August sucked some serious balls! I didn't lose a freaking pound and I felt like a failure! I figured that once again, I was going to fail at this "diet" too. That I was destined to be fat forever! That I was destined to be buried in the extra large coffin. It sucked. I told myself I was not gonna go to BOOBS because I didn't want to be the fattest person there. I did not want to meet everyone at 300+ lbs. I know, it is irrational thinking but they are my crazy ass thoughts! Sorry! So, last week I weighed myself and it said that I was under 300, WTF?!? That can't be right. I had been eating like crazy. So, I stepped off and stepped back on the scale and sure as shit....299. Let me share a tidbit of history. I have not weighed less than 300 since the day of my wedding nearly 4 years ago. At that time I lost 62lbs with WW. I was so excited to say that I did not weigh 300 when I walked down the aisle but soon after the wedding, I slowly started regaining. It happens. We all know that. This morning the scale fairy blessed me with 295 which brings me to a loss of 42lbs since 5/10/10. Not too shabby considering the stupid scale didn't move at all in August and I have not been working out.
Speaking of working out....! Friday I am starting with a personal trainer and am soooo excited! I need a serious kick in the ass to tighten some of this loose skin, get my heart healthy, build my endurance and all the other crap associated with exercising. LOL!
BOOBS, yes, I will be at BOOBS. Ok, ok.....calm down. I know the excitement of meeting me is overwhelming for most of you but trust me....I am just an ordinary (awesome) person that you all will love! Found out one of our room mates can't make it so that stinks but now I don't have to sleep with Jen....she is very disappointed about not sleeping with me. :) I do have to say that I will NOT be wearing a dress during BOOBS weekend. I am not a dress person so I am hoping that nice jeans, or pants, will be ok for our dinner. Also, does anyone know about the 5k? I want to do it but not sure that I will be able to run the entire thing. How will that work for someone like me?
I received some clothes from Amy C. and will be taking pics this weekend and posting. I cannot believe that I will be wearing Old Navy! I have NEVER worn Old Navy. EVER. The sisterhood is awesome and I hope to someday contribute some of my clothes!!!
I have missed you all and have started catching up on all the blogs that I have missed. Sorry!
Letter to 300lbs
I want to say goodbye. I wish I could say that I will miss you but I can't. I never liked you. You depressed me and made it difficult to buy clothes, walk up stairs, play with my kids and just live. I hid because of you and now, I don't have to hide. I know, I am only 5 lbs from you but I know I will never let you take hold of my life again. I have control and an awesome tool that is helping me. So, goodbye and good riddance.
