Weigh In Disappointment Accompanied By….

Although it’s still a loss, I’m currently at 244.0 lbs.  A total weight loss of 36 lbs but only .8 lbs since my last update.

I am really disappointed by this but I’m hoping that I can pick it back up over the next two weeks.  My issue is not exercise.  I am kickboxing 3 days a week and doing PT one day a week.  Anyone who has been to the gym with me knows that I work my butt off.  

I will say that the last two weeks have been very stressful for me.  On Wednesday, I pretty much broke down on poor Angie during PT.  The tears were coming, friends!  For those that don’t know- I’m not a huge crier, so if I’m crying it’s usually because I’ve reached my breaking point.

Alas, this week will be better.  I have a friend visiting Charleston this week and my sister and her family will be here on Wednesday.  My sister and I will actually be going to Victoria’s Secret while she is here as this is a milestone that I want to share with her.

Now for my small victory… I traveled to Columbia yesterday for a leadership training for my sorority.  We were asked to dress up and this was my outfit:

  The importance of this outfit is that those pants are two sizes smaller than where I started.  I haven’t been able to wear a size 18 since freshman year in college!  The shirt was purchased in Wyoming last year.  I haven’t been able to wear it since I bought it because it didn’t fit (based on the size on the tag it should have!).  I felt good and looked good and I can’t tell you how great that felt!

I set a short term goal to get to 50 lbs by the end of July.  I’m 14 lbs from this goal, so it’s beyond work time.

Thank you to everyone that keeps reading this and supporting me on this journey.  This is the hardest and most emotional thing I have ever done.  I know it will be worth it.  I’M worth it.

Lots of love, y’all.  Keep working on that #sexyinprogress
