I have reached my first MAJOR goal in my weight loss journey! I didn't think it would be this soon in the week just because yesterday I weighed myself and I was 201.2lbs. I thought for sure I wouldn't reach my goal until the end of the week just because my weight loss has been going a lot slower these days. But as always my body gave me quite a suprise this morning.

I went walking this morning with my mom and boyfriend (Bryan). We did about 2 miles on a trail...we had never gone to this trail before so we thought we would give it a try and it turned out to be a great walk. Much  more challenging than the walks we normally do so it was a good walk this morning. I definitely broke a nice sweat. The great part was that I was actually doing it, when I was heavier I would always moan and groan about exercising and now I can't live without it!

I know I know you don't want me to ramble on anymore you just want the numbers! haha ok so here they are and as promised a picture of the scale :o)

Thats right! I have reached ONEderland!!!

Starting Weight: 279.6lbs
Current Weight: 198.4lbs
Total Weight Loss to date: 81.2lbs

I can't even tell you how thrilled I am to be at this point! This was my first big goal met and now I am on to working towards my next major goal and I am so happy that I have such a great support system (all of you out there) to follow me on this journey and to be here with me every step of the way. I could not be more thankful for a greater group of people! You all inspire me everyday with everything that each and every one of you do out there. It keeps me going and it keeps me motivated and for that I can't thank you all enough!

Enjoy the rest of the week out there and as always, lets shed those extra pounds together!

I know Amanda over at Life of a (hopeful) loser was having a bad day and I tried to leave a comment Amanda so I will just leave it here...

You look BEAUTIFUL!!! Don't ever think for one second that you haven't changed, you look fabulous! I know its hard to see for yourself sometimes, I think that we all do that...because we still see ourselves as heavy.

Stay positive and know that you have done EXTREMELY well and you look fantastic!!

Good morning out there,

As you all know I having been trying to get to my first MAJOR goal since my surgery. I had a rough weekend where I put on 2lbs so it brought my weight to 203.6. Not a good thing! So I told myself that this is the week....this is the week that I am going to try my best to get to my first MAJOR goal (don't get me wrong, I have been trying) but my weight hasn't been going anywhere! So yesterday was Monday and I told myself that I was going to get all of my liquids in, eat what I am supposed to eat (which I normally do) and move a little more.

Weigh in this morning was 201.2lbs I am almost there! I really think my last fill was a good fill. I am really able to feel the restriction and I am very satisfied after a small meal.

So this week is all about determination. I am determined to try my best and hopefully reach my first MAJOR goal this week. I have 2lbs to lose and I know that if I stay focused and try my best thats all I can do and hopefully my body will work with me :o)

I will keep you all posted on my progress this week and maybe, just maybe I will get to see what ONEderland feels like :o) Lets all have a great week out there! And as always, lets shed those extra pounds together!!

Beautiful Weekend...

Hey everyone...I thought I would give you all a weekend update. This weekend has been SO beautiful! Except this wonderful Sunday it was supposed to be nice and now its very cloudy with rain :o( At least we had a really nice day yesterday. I started playing golf with my mom, but instead of using the Golf cart around the course we like to walk it, so not only are we getting exercise from playing the game, but we walk the entire course as well, which I love doing anyways!!

I had a great week of weight loss, I know I was stuck for a little while and I just have to say Thank you to all of you for your positive comments, it means so much to me and I really love seeing how all of you are doing out there!! I am keeping up with all of your blogs and you guys are truely inspiring to me and it just keeps me going! So thank you!

As for my weight loss, I am down 2 more pounds from this past my new numbers are in at 205lbs...getting closer to my first goal of being under 200lbs!! So I am at a total weight loss of 74lbs...woo hoo!! Almost there I can feel it! haha

I hope all of you have a great weekend (whats left of it) and a great week this week! And I had a request to take a picture of the scale and I promise to do that as soon as I hit my first goal which will be 199...And I will have new pictures coming as well!! Have a great week out there! As always lets shed those extra pounds together!!
