Weigh-In | 12.6.10

Ok everyone...this is a post I've been nervous & excited to write.

First things first.  I'm down 2 pounds!  Yeah!  Grand total:  29 lbs!  This week's weight loss put me over the 10% mark!  Yes, I have now lost over 10% of my starting body weight.  That's the nervous part of this.  By admitting this, if you're decent at math, you now know my starting weight.  *Sigh*

Yes, back in August - I had ballooned to my highest weight EVER.  Two hundred and eighty-two pounds.  UGH.  My heart is thumping like crazy to admit my weight.  Ya know??  (We women are SO protective of our weight).  When I first started this blog, I thought I was 30 pounds heavier than when I got married the year before.  Recently I ran across my old Weight Watchers log from that time.  Um....was I off!  I had gained FORTY-THREE pounds in one year!  Ridiculous!  I was plagued with pictures like this:

Love my friend, but MAN...I was hating my fat face (for starters)!
I heart my sister and our goofy sense of humor.  Look at that double chin!  Yuck. 

The last picture is one of many that were taken on a road-trip with my sister.  She took one with her phone that day that made me realize how big I had become.  It was taken the weekend before I started this blog.  The one above isn't nearly as bad (but bad enough), and I'm glad I don't have the other! Ha!

So, now everyone knows where I've been.  Where I am now.  Also, you now know about how long the road ahead of me is!!  Keep following along.  I'm going to get there.  Wait and see. 

So, about this past week.  I honestly don't feel like I deserved the 2 pound loss I saw this morning.  My eating was way less than stellar, though not horrible.  It was a tough week.  Exercise was lighter than normal.  I'm experiencing a little bit of burn out.  The weather & time change has really made a huge difference in my activity.  So, I'm surprised the scale swung in my favor.  I'm very happy for it, though!  I'll take it and keep going.  I KNOW that kind of week won't happen twice in a row.  So, this week I'm going to pick up the pace!  Maybe.....just maybe....I'll go out and try to run.  Lord knows I miss it!  I want to test my hip.  It's been feeling a lot better. 

Well, that's about it for today.  I'm hoping to be around more this week.  I've missed blogging!
