Weigh-In Wednesday: 8/10/11

Highest Weight:          310.0
Last Week Weight:      242.0
Current Weight:          239.8

This Week's Loss:          2.2

Total Weight Lost:       70.2

Words cannot describe my excitement about finally seeing the 230s!  I can't believe that I have lost 70 pounds in almost a year!  That's ridiculous!  This from a girl who never lost anything more than 15 pounds in her life prior to this!  I thought I was doomed to stay big for the rest of my life, and then I realized that I was in control of my own destiny and got my fat ass off the couch and went for a walk! (okay, that was a lot of exclamation points, but I don't care.  I'm excited, can't you tell???)

This week was a decent one.  I stayed pretty much on point with my eating (I had a treat, here or there) and even if I didn't get as much formal exercise that I wanted (I think I went to the gym or for a run a total of 4 times) I did at least get my butt moving everyday.

I just need to make sure and keep my head focused.  I have two weeks until my Fativersary and I really want to hit my 75 pounds lost goal.  That right there might make my head explode from excitement!  After that I have a secret goal in mind that I will share with everyone once I hit it.  It won't be too long after my 75 pound goal, but I don't want to share it until I hit it.  It would be a MAJOR achievement for me so I am keeping it to myself until then.

I want to thank everyone for their kind words over my new job by the way, and the encouragement that everyone has for me.  I have a feeling this blog will change drastically while I am out on the road and I hope that you all will enjoy it.  You'll be touring the country with me!  Get to see what I see in all of the exciting (and not so exciting) cities that I will visit.  I might actually start to talk more about what I'm specifically eating, since I have a feeling I'm going to have to get creative while out on the road.

We shall see!
