Uploading some pictures today from my birthday events (it was August 8th btw...ya'll missed it lol!) I realized 2 things:
A: I must really like to wear orange to my family birthday shindigs ....

And B: I've lost a heck of a lot of weight!

I never felt as heavy as I clearly was- which is a double edged sword - but now that I am, where I am, I never want to go back again! I have so much more energy and sadly (?) even more confidence.
I'm so thankful for this journey that I'm on and I'm excited to continue to progress. A few days ago the scale hit its lowest mark yet bringing me to officially 50 lbs lost in about 8 months time. I want to lose 15 lbs more and hit where BMI charts officially consider "healthy" for my height. I don't know if that will be my comfortable spot or not - more or less- but there's only one way to find out!
And now for one more gratuitous set of photos- because I'm so damn proud:
Proof that just because you can get it on - doesn't mean its your size
