I'm back, baby!!

So I went through a bit of an emo stage, band-wise.  The scale wasn't moving, I was making some poor food choices, and I was just in a funk. 

But I snapped myself out of it and told myself that gaining all this weight took a long time, and losing it is going to take a long time too.  And giving up will only keep me miserable and fat and I do NOT want that!

This morning when I got on the scale, I almost fell over when I saw the number!  266.2!!   2-freaking-66.2!!  Not only did the scale move, but it pushed me over the 30 lb. mark that has been taunting me for the last couple of weeks!!  I'm officially lost 30 lbs!!

Then, while I was on my bike ride this morning I had another amazing realization!  Losing 30 lbs. means that I've lost 10% of my body weight!!  29.7 lbs was my magic 10% mark and I made it!!  WOOT!!!

I'm feeling renewed and energized and motivated to keep going!  Thirty pounds in a little over two months feels so amazing and I can't wait to hit that 40 lb. mark!!


  1. That's amazing! It seems like you were just banded and now you're 30 pounds down. I'm glad you're feeling better.

  2. YAY!!! That's awesome!!

    It feels SO good to have the scale move anytime, but ESPECIALLY after it's been stubborn for a while. :D

  3. You are doing so great. I get my first fill on Tuesday and hoping that will kickstart some serious weight loss.

  4. Congrats 10% body fat lossage, and 30 pounds lost! What a great start! Don't get in a funk again...keep moving!!!
