It gets very frustrating for me sometimes.
This picture was taken awhile before June 1st. I was at my heaviest ever: 237 lbs
Here is June 3rd, 2016.
I am down to 187 lbs. Down to 40 lbs from June 1st. (same shirt)
But altogether down 50 lbs from my very heaviest.
In the past year......Ive lost 40 lbs and 51 total inches so far.
Ive gone from 2X to ex-large shirt.
Ive gone from 20W-size 16 pants.
I began this journey because my mom had 2 strokes which took her from this:
Where my stomach used to be out too at 30 lbs lost.
But I keep reminding myself WHY I do this:
*I want to be healthy.
**I want to here with Don to enjoy our Golden years together
***I want to be here for my kids and their families.
****I want to do things with my grand kids instead of dying from activity. A goal this winter is....sledding this winter! I want to walk back up that Big hill without dying!!
*****I want to live a long life...like my grandma used to say...well as long as the good Lord gives you!!
******Plus I want really cute clothes!!
Oh! I've wanted to quit a zillion times and or blow up that ole scale. Don has heard me yell at it and call it names LOL
I'm not done yet. It may take me another year but I am keeping on keeping on. I am just proud of what Ive done already. Head shots of the past year.
For this next year....Ive decided to become a Weed!! LOL
As I garden I pull those suckers and they just don't quit!! A few days later they are back!!
They don't give up, they keep trying. They do their own thing and they can survive anything.
It may kill me but I am gonna survive this weight issue...I have to!!
