One thing that I have noticed (and love) is the changes in my face over the last month or so. Going from 20lbs in early july to 40lbs mid August. Things have just slimmed out and I dont have to worry as much about a double chin in photos….eww. That was a big wake up call in deciding to loose weight, the fact that no matter what angle I took a picture I always had a double chin…yuck. But now things are getting much better. I have a really busy week what with wedding planning so Im going to look into going to a Tuesday morning WW meeting down here as opposed to driving 45 min to Westminster. I think the week has gone well, Im down 5lbs on my scale naked so Id love to see a 2.5-3lb loss for the week…yay…so close to 50lbs lost!
Anyways here are two examples of my face…ha! One from exactly a year ago and one from 3 months ago, I wish I had some god awful straight on shots from before but this will have to do:
Oh I bet you wanna know how my weigh in went dont cha!
Well last week was crappy, by last Tuesday morning I stepped on the scale pretty much weighing what I did the week before…booo. So I skipped the meeting (I know, bad) but I felt like I wanted to get myself on track and down a few pounds for this week. So I ate pretty good, of course my eating habits have changed greatly over the last month, cutting out most meat and cheese, and increasing my vegetables and fruits (lots and lots of fruit) our fridge is packed with fresh foods, its so nice. Well anyways the scale started to drop so I went to weigh in this morning with the results of…..wait for it…..
4.8 POUNDS LOST!
Yeah yeah dawg! Woohoo! That puts me at 39.2 lbs lost overall! that’s 40 lbs NAKED! Ha! I would have loved for it to say 40lbs at my meeting, but who am I to complain about almost 5lbs in a week! That puts me over my 10lbs a month goal and even ahead for my 50lbs by Halloween goal! Hello Sexy Halloween costume!…kidding.
So Im super stoked and thrilled! I feel like 50lbs will bring me to whole new size of pants (which is quite possibly the most thrilling part of all of this). Im also really hoping to hit between 75-80lbs lost by Christmas, I would love to go back to Washington to my grandparents for Christmas and see my whole extended family who haven’t seen me in over a year and flaunt my 75lb thinner body! That would be bad ass! (= One day at a time though.
Oh and in other exciting news I got officially offered a job at Costco which I will start tomorrow! Yay for being employed! Ha! Oh and here are some progress pics (sorry I dont have actual Before pics on this computer and my other computer isnt working right now so I cant get them):
two weeks after starting WW...ewww
AFTER 40lbs GONE:
As you can see we have along ways to go, but things are slimming out a bit.
