50 Pounds GONE!

Monday, August 15, 2011

While helping my friends move this weekend, I carried some HEAVY stuff. Including some boxes which i was told by a man there "weight about 50 pounds".

Stepping onto the scale this morning I see I've reached EXACTLY 50 pounds lost since beginning this journey. (Insert visual image of me doing a happy dance on the scale). After weighing myself 3 times to be sure the scale wasn't lying, I danced around for a little bit while brushing my teeth and thought about 50 pounds.

Did I really lose 50 pounds? That box of books that felt like a ton of bricks. That bed frame. The crate of dishes. All those things I moved that felt so heavy. I lost that much weight off of me!

It makes me wonder how I ever functioned that much heavier than I am now? I still have quite a ways to go but I couldn't be more proud.

I turn 30 this week on Friday and reaching this milestone at the same time seems like fortuitous timing. Things are clicking into place and I can't wait to see where I am come Christmas time.

So proud :) So happy! AND 50 pounds lighter!!
