These boots!

"These boots were made for walkin,"
"And thats just what Ill do."
"One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you."

"Are you ready boots?"
"Start walkin!"


Oh how sweet it is to be in the 230's. Today is officially my 80 pound loss day. I am totally celebrating. I made it through the holidays without gaining an fact I lost instead. I only have twenty pounds to my 100 pound loss goal. Ill really start seeing results now. My stomach still has a post pregnancy lump at the top. Yucky I know. I am VERY anxious to see that go away.

So as I said, I am celebrating. I was going to wait until I lost 100 to do this but I can wait no longer. Today I will go shopping for my cowgirl boots that I have been wanting for years. I think I deserve it. BOOT BARN here I come. I just have to wait until they open.

Pictures of my boots to come!!!!

Body shots!!

Last night I spent the evening with my very favorite ex-sister-in-law/best friend, Carrie...her husband (who is my long lost brother) and their son (who is basically my nephew.) Isnt she the sweetest little Carrie you have ever seen? I love her!

I also thought I would document how I look right now. Please excuse my awkward poses. I look so weird. LOL I also wish someone would tell me how to dress because clearly, I am clueless. However; I am now in a size twenty jeans and I'm down to about a size 1-2x shirt. This is a far cry from where I started.

I'm digging the layered look. It allows me to wear shorter shirts yet still cover my big as a house butt.

All in all, my pictures still disappoint me but they are a good reminder of how far I have come...and how far I have to go.

Merry Christmas everyone!! I will be staying away from the goodies, and it will be so worth it in the end!!

Up Up Up

Im actually up two pounds. I think thats because I am addicted to weighing myself every day. I do know that my jeans are getting loose again so I am looking to downsize again soon. YIPPEE!! Last night my son turned five...I took three bites of cake...chewed them up...and spit them out. LOL I have a habit of doing that so that at least I get the sweet taste in my mouth but don't consume the calories. I'm so weird!!!!

Overall I am feeling very munchy lately and having a hard time staying out of snack foods like crackers and cookies. I can generally NOT eat them but my brain is playing tricks on me lately. I need to get my will power back. I'm not liking this stage. Its almost like my body has been deprived and its screaming for more...although I'm not starving myself. I think its a mental thing. Mind over matter is what I keep telling myself. Of course to combat it I chug the chocolate coffee. Not a great alternative but I REFUSE to gain all that weight back. It feels to good to be smaller.

Looking for the 230's

This feels good....really good. My waist is really curvy now. I still have the post baby belly in front (which I HATE) but I imagine after another twenty pounds it will be almost gone. My butt is still big but its starting to take shape again. Ill try to get some pictures....not of my butt (LOL) but of my body. I haven't done that in awhile. The 230's are right around the corner. I CANT WAIT!!!! So today I have officially lost 75 pounds.

Going down!!

I have a great friend at work who has lost more weight then I have. She generously gives me all her pant that she doesn't fit in anymore. I proudly hang them in my closet and try them on twice a week or so. The other day I thought I would try on a pair of twenty jeans and guess what? THEY FIT!!! Here is my current weight.

I don't have much of an appetite lately. The stress of my life has got me down so I'm afraid I'm not eating to healthy...actually I'm hardly eating at all so the weight is coming off fast. Soon I will feel a bit more motivated. For now...I'm feeling pretty good in my size twenty....not so small....but feeling good in...jeans.
