I Saw It!

I saw 239 on the scale this morning, but I don't think I am ready to claim it just yet. But woo hoo, at least I saw it! 239 marks the half way point to my initial goal weight of 175. That means I will have lost 64 pounds--just gotta make sure it sticks. Oh what the heck, might as well celebrate it--it's mine!

I had a great time at my 20 year high school reunion this past weekend. It felt so good to show up knowing that I was feeling skinnier rather than fatter than when I was in high school. I wish I could remember what I weighed back then, I know I am close to that weight, and maybe just a little less. It just felt good to have a new outfit on feel like a million bucks in it. I wore a cute little plaid skort (size 20!) and a blue short sleeve hoodie sweater (1X!). The size 18 skort actually zipped, but it was a little tight across the hips, so I opted to buy the 20, but damn, it felt good to try on some new sizes and have to ask the sales lady, "could you please get me a smaller size". Awesome!


  1. You saw it, you claim it! You only have to see it once. :) Way to are doing great! 64 lbs in just a little over six months is awesome!!!

  5. Amazing! Damn right, claim it... it is your victory, and your journey to enjoy! I would love to go to a high school reunion and be skinnier than I was then... maybe one day... my 25th is in a couple years... Can you imagine? Actually, yes you can! *Maria*
