but now...i really cannot wear most of my pants without a belt, which happen to be freakin' extra-larges. wearing a belt that is too big to hold up pants that are too big - i find it endlessly humorous.
as of this past saturday, i had officially lost 55 pounds. this morning, the scale was in the 140s, which i cannot even begin to believe. we will have to wait and see if i can hold that the rest of the week. i tend to weigh-in very low on mondays since i play two soccer games most sundays. by friday...it is a different story. the fact that i am so close to my goal weight is making me want to try a little harder to not be so cavalier with my extra 49 points this week.
here is me from last monday and today.
since the beginning of this journey, i have kept my starting and goal weights private. i have been debating recently about whether or not i want to share those numbers whenever i decide to be done. like i said from the start, it was never about a specific "number" (though to be a lifetime/free member of weight watchers, you need to be within a certain range...) but about feeling better about myself. i definitely feel better about myself. and i am starting to think that i every right to be proud of whatever the total loss ends up being.
so, to all my readers, this is my promise that when i hit my goal weight - which is seriously, like, 6-7 pounds away - i will share my beginning and ending weights. i mean, really - you know i will take a picture of the scale to prove it. : )
