I’m so!!! 11.9 lbs down!!! Ah!!!
I’m so happy. I’m so close to running out of the 190′s! And I thought I would’ve gained weight this week but I knew I worked super hard last week at the gym to make up for mishaps. I’m just super excited and happy that my body’s changing in a positive way. People at work, who haven’t seen me in the last two months, all complimented me on how much more healthy I look. I don’t always see it but I’m glad it’s becoming visible to at least the outside world. More detailed post about this week will follow after making/eating dinner!
I joined a challenge/community thread on MyFitnessPal called “Thirty lbs by Christmas” and honestly, I can see myself losing 30 pounds by then. I’m just. I’m happy.

Well, I’m pretty impressed with myself. I managed today to go to the doctor’s, to two different malls, to get my camera checked for repairs.
I got a crop top and shorts that fit me. But sadly my camera would cost too much to repair - it would make more sense to just get a new camera. I ended up getting a new piercing, and picked up some groceries.
It’s pretty amazing…only a few months ago my energy levels were so low that I could barely even run a simple errand without feeling ready to pass out. I’m feeling pretty pleased, and the day isn’t done yet!
It takes a long time to accept your body, flaws and all. It can take even longer time when you’ve had a bunch of kids, and struggled with your weight and fitness for years.
3 years ago I wouldn’t have put on a bathing suit, much less a bikini. I still have some work to do, and significant fitness goals I want to reach before I turn fifty in the spring, but today I went to the beach with my children and felt pretty okay.
Never in my life have I ever gone swimming in a “two piece.” These Nike shorts and top bathing suiting top don’t go together, but it’s what I had and it matched with my new hat. I went for a 2 mile run this morning and I went swimming for 3 maybe 4 hours. It was just me, my mom and my two sisters, so I felt comfortable enough to wear this. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but this is so big for me. Yes, I’m still overweight, yes I have cellulite, but for most days I’m happy and proud of my hard work. Never thought someone like me could be comfortable in her own skin.
just a lil reminder to be proud of your progress and to keep taking little steps at a time, as eventually you’ll reach your full potential and you’ll look back on the days you thought you’d never make it, and you’ll smile, knowing you never gave in :’)
