Pictures, pictures, pictures.
So I haven't posted in over a week because I promised the next time I posted there would be pictures and I didn't know how to do it! I am sure all you tech savvy people are rolling your eyes right now, lol! But I got hubby to sit down and work with me and now I know how to do it. If you want to see them you will have to click on the archives on the right and go back into August. I posted before and after pictures of all 3 of my major weight loss adventures as well as a picture back in October when I was down about 40 pounds.
I am not losing very fast but I am losing. Today I weighed in at 187.6. When I get to 185 I will have lost 60 pounds which is the most I have ever lost on any program or diet I tried in the past. I have set my goal as 145 which will be 100 pounds lost and I don't think it is an unreasonable goal. I think 130 would be just too thin for me. I am not a dainty little girl even when thing. I wear a size 11 shoe and am pretty big boned. I will never be a size 4 or 6 or even an 8 but a size 10 might be achievable. I just had to get some more jeans. They are a size 16, down from my 22's. I saw my grand kids earlier today and I was wearing a new outfit, had make-up on and expected a real double take from them. After quite a while when no one said anything I said to my grandson, Connor. "Hey, can you tell grandma has lost weight?" He looked me over and said, "No, you just look like grandma!" You just gotta love it! I guess grandma's are just perfect no matter what they weigh, lol!
I hope everyone reading this blog is doing awesome or at least hanging in there. Losing weight is a tough road, it is not for wimps and even having bariatric surgery does not make it a cake walk. I wonder why so many metaphors we use are food related. Cake walk. I used to always participate in those at school fairs and I won more than my share of cakes, just as I always ate more than my share of cake but I digress. Anyway, I think of those of you who come and visit as my friends, and when I pray I offer you all up for whatever your need is because I believe God knows each one of you and your needs.
