Here I am! 50 pounds lighter than where I started.
I have officially lost the equivalent of my six year old. Or, my favorite reminder when I start to think a pound isn't that much, I have now lost 200 sticks of butter. TWO HUNDRED.
It wasn't a GREAT week because I didn't get a ton of exercise, but it was good. I feel like I am really going somewhere. With everything that's going on, I've had some hard days, but exciting things are happening which I promise to write more about soon.
I have added a new thing to track up there at the top, the average # of pounds I need to lose per week to reach my goal for my birthday. I'll adjust it as I weigh in each week. My new short term goal is 213.5, which will mark the halfway point to my goal. It's hard for me to believe that I could lose as much as I have, and it's only halfway. I can't believe that's where I was. There is probably a lot more to say about that, but not right now because dangit it is midnight again and I'm up, just like every night, I am having a hell of a time getting to bed when I should!
