Never thought I would get this far.

So here I am 25 pounds lighter. I feel better and like the new me. Sure I still go to the XL sections at stores I mean that is what I have been doing for years! Some of my shirts that I bought while heavy and were tight are now to big and sadly I never really got to wear them. Some of my bra's are even to big.. EEK! Today a friend said.. "hey looks like you need to get some new pants!" lol yup I do. I donated about 10 pairs and have about 4 that fit.. scratch that 3 that fit. I am still excited to be dropping weight and have no plans on stopping right now. Looking at a website that says what your ideal body weight for med frame it is 127-141 and for large frame it is 137-155. If you have a small frame which I do not it is even smaller but since I am not a small frame (am i?) I won't bother with that number. I know it's not always good to go for a weight but to me I think that it is a tangible goal to have so I think my ideal goal weight it 135. It falls in the range of both med/large frame. I hope to be in a size 8.. wow 8!
Another milestone was reached... for the first time in her life Alexa was able to give me a hug and her hands actually touched behind me! Her arms fit all the way around me! this has never happened and it felt amazing! She smiled big when I pointed it out to her!
It has been a long long road and I still have a long and rough road ahead. I have to keep looking forward and take a few glances behind me so I don't forget how far I have actually traveled.

Truth be told

I have actually lost 31 pounds. I keep a record of when I first "started" um gave a "half-hearted" um "sorta" tried to lose weight. I was at my heaviest which was 230 pounds! yes I said it I had let myself get THAT heavy! I knew that was as far as I was going to go anything over that and I would have wanted to shot myself. So all in all 31 pounds have gone and 21 of them have been gone since January 2, 2012.
I went thru all my jeans yesterday. I had about 10 pairs that I could wear most of them would fall off me as I was walking so they are in the donation pile. I am down to 4 that fit me. One pair is questionable they fit a little big but still not big enough to fall off so they will be the ones I wear when the others are dirty.
My shirts are way to big as well but some of them I can make due for the winter/spring what ever is going on right now with the weather. Then on to summer I have to buy new stuff all around. My shorts won't be fitting me and my current bathing suit lets all my stuff hang out.
So there you go getting into shape and fitting into things I haven't been able to wear in ages. In a size I haven't been in in over 7 years.
Thanks to my husband with all the daily support. I love you babe. (even if he NEVER reads this)

The good thing about getting sick is.....

Losing weight! I have lost almost 5 pounds since getting sick. So I suppose that is the only good thing that has come out of me getting sick.
I have been going to class all last week.. even in the wind, rain and snow. This week I doubt I will even make it. I can barely get out of bed more less get up and go work out. I feel horrible..... I tried tried tried to not catch the germs that my hubby and daughter had... I guess it didn't work. I don't feel like doing anything and even walking down the stairs takes it out of me.
Well nothing else to report.. being sick sucks!
