Hi-ya, skinny friends!
Today was weigh-in day, and as you can see from the sidebar and my title, I'm down some poundage! As you read in my last few posts, I haven't been eating the greatest. Well, with cutting out my grains, working out and eating better, I am proud to say that I'm even closer to my goal!!
Wait, that's not all. I am F-I-V-E pounds away from my goal weight. You have no idea how excited I am about this. I haven't been this weight in 6+ years, so this is a huge moment for me. Since my heaviest, I have lost a total of 55 pounds, which is a ton for a little 5' 4" girl.
I mentioned in a previous post that my sister has her wedding soon- this Saturday actually! Only three more days until her big day. Anyhow, my mom practiced my make-up and hair today, and I tried on my bridesmaid dress. Would you believe that I lost more weight that I planned since buying it? The back is looser than I'd like, but it could be so much worse. (Like the opposite!) While I was showing my parents what the dress/ hair/ make-up looked like together, they commented that I looked great. They said they could definitely tell I lost weight and I was looking toned. Doesn't really get any better than that!
THANK YOU to those who keep pushing me. I'm still not finished with my journey, and I have TONS more to learn about keeping a healthy, active lifestyle. Oh, and don't even get me started on what I'll need to do to maintain. Even though I'm nearing my goal, I'll definitely be continuing my blog. Hopefully I can continue to cheer you on, inspire you, and also let you know what's worked for me in the past.
Keep at it, blog friends. Remember, hard work DOES pay off! :)
