Dear Blog!

I finally did it! I finally got to 1/2 way to my goal weight! I've lost 25 pounds since January 11th!!! woooooooooooooo hoooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's taken longer than I thought it would but the bottom line is that I finally made it! I'm sooooooooo happy!

Friday I even did something I've been wanting to do for awhile, I WALKED to the grocery store and back, ok it's just over 2 miles round trip but I DID IT!!! I know I wouldn't have been able to do it when I started in January but I CAN do it now! I took my little hand cart and just walked to the store to pick up things and walked back. It was a major accomplishment for me! I've wondered if I would be able to complete a 5K or not and now I know I could!

Ok so 25 pounds more to go........ I did some shopping yesterday to find some new pants..... my pants have looked so huge and baggy I just have to have a few new pair...... I thought I may be down to a size 16 but when I tried them on in the store it was a size 18....... but that's down from a size 22! I'm wearing size large tops ...... down from a 2x! wooooo hooooooooooo!!!

I got until the end of July for my class reunion and I was hoping to have lost MOST of my weight by then but I have to realize it isn't going to happen that fast....... I'll look better but I won't be able to reach my goal by then......... I still gotta pick up the pace a little!

I've worked so hard to get to my 1/2 way point........ and I'm proud of myself that I got here!

    Hello Suz,

    Sorry I have been gone for awhile. My hubby had a health scare, and although we are not totally out of the woods, we are praying it gets better by the day.

    I have maintained between 174 & 178, I fluctuate day by day. It has been a struggle, but I have been keeping on!

    Sounds like you are still doing wonderful! Good for you Suz, I knew you would stick with it.

    I will check in later, just wanted to say HELLO!

    I started Spark in January also with 25 pounds to lose. So far, nothing. You obviously have committed more firmly than I . I can do this . Yes, I can. This week I will.
