Do I even need to explain my feelings on this??? Ya'll know I was hott!! haha So the whole rest of the drive I'm planning my letter in my head to Tom Joyner how I'm on the same plan as J.Hud and YES SHE CAN EAT THAT!!! And don't you dare ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER use that D word again. K? Get it Tom? Sybil? J. Anthony Brown? Got it? GOOD.
My mood was quickly lightened (literally) when I got on the scale! After a two week plateau I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I lost 4.4lbs this week!!!!!! For a total of 71 stinkin' pounds!!! DO YOU HEAR ME???!! SEVENTY ONE POUNDS!!!
Check out this infamous moment in history just in case you were a youngin' like me when it aired (I was one lol) Oprah shows the audience the 67lbs of fat that she lost.
I am proud to say 1) I lost more than that and 2) Unlike Oprah, I will NEVER...I REPEAT...NEVERRRRRR gain any of it back ever again!!!!!
People keep saying to me "I can't imagine how you must feel" or "Doesn't it feel so great?" .. I don't think GREAT is the appropriate word. I don't know if there is an appropriate word for how I feel. "Incredible" would be probably the closest word I can find. I just can't wait to lose 100lbs!!!
So after my meeting today I sat in the car for a while..listening to music, eating my pretzels, drinking my water and just letting the day soak in. Then I went to buy myself some flowers :)
I am so thankful for everyone who has shown me love and support throughout this journey. It's nowhere near over and when I lose these last 30lbs, that's when the REAL challenge begins but I am so thankful for all of my family and friends for being so incredibly awesome including YOU!!!
My ego gets really really big when I have a good week but this was a particularly awesome week so of course I had to take a new picture for the "Watch Me Shrink" album that I have on FB:
God is GOOD!! Heading to the water park tomorrow for the first time since I have lost weight and excited to not care about trying to cover myself up! Lately I've been looking at women on the beach when I go and even the thinner ones have cellulite SO my new plan is not to give a d*mn about my cellulite, be PROUD of where I have come from, and let the world see my thighs! :)
One Last Thought:
Today in my meeting, we were talking about why we celebrate all things and can only have fun when our social gatherings revolve around food and someone said "Because we only live once." Her reasoning that we only live once so we should eat does not work for me (however I would have agreed in the past). Now, I say - We only live once, let's treat our bodies like gold and live this one and only life as healthily as possible! Are you with me????
