100 lbs lost!!!!

It took me a little while but I finally did it!  I have lost 100 lbs to date!  I have 54 lbs to go to my goal of 170.  I just have to remind myself that is is not a race but a journey, and I'll get there eventually!

I started this journey at 324lbs, wearing a size 30/32/4x clothes.  Since then I have gone down to 18/20/2x clothes with those starting to get a little big.  I wore a size 16 skirt and 1x shirt to church last sunday.  I really never thought I would see those sizes again in my lifetime.  Clothes really depend on the style.  I'm big breasted so I wear 2x shirts and some 18/20 button downs are still tight. 

We had a clothes drive at chruch last month. I donated 6 lbs of clothes from just me, along with 6 more bags from the rest of the family.  Talk about losing a whole wardrobe!  I told hubby today I'm running out of clothes, he just smiles.

Speaking of my hubby, he is sooo supportive.  He tells me everyday how hot I'm looking.  He even said I was getting too thin. I just laughed at him then I told him that I was only 16 lbs heavier than him, lol!!!!!!  Now he's talking about getting in shape for ME!?!?!  Wow!  For so long, I felt like it was the other way around.

I go to the dr for my 6 month check up.  He said he wanted me at 200lbs which I thought was ridiculous.  the NUT and RN said I should be at 220.  So I have 4 lbs to go in 2 weeks and I'm crossing my fingers!!! My weight loss has slowed down after the first 3 months but I'm okay with that.  Its coming off and I do take my measurements so I see results even when the scale doesn't move.  And yes, I weight and measure myself every morning.

So I'm 2/3 of the way to my goal.  So close I can almost taste it!
