That's right! It's a picture of Amy/Lauren/Ashlyn taken today~ which is WEIGH IN day...
and I am now...
ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY NINE POUNDS!!!
This means that I have ENTERED the 180's (by the skin of my teeth... who knows what next week will bring... BUT I'M HERE.) and
I have now officially lost FIFTY-FIVE pounds!
The down side is I'm not FEELING the 180's, yet. After calling my mom to tell her my good news she said "now you can look forward to the 170's!" And I said "I need to get my feet firmly planted in the 180's first. My TRUE weight today is 189.8. So I'm TWO TENTHS of a pound away from my dreaded 190's... However I AM HERE. I have not been "here" in about 11 years! I'm stepping up this week on my workout routine. Starting on Tuesdays & Thursdays I'm working out with Nikki in the mornings & then I'm going to do an hour of cardio in the evenings with my friend, Melonie. I'd say my biggest challenge lately has been my diet. I have a hard time giving up the sweets! I think it would be AMAZING to see what I could do if I continued to exercise at the pace I'm at AND quit eating something chocolately every day... *sigh*
I'm now in the 180's and I need to come up with a plan to STAY HERE!
