Ow. Just Ow. Updated Picture.  
I forced myself to do Cardio today, and OWWW. I'm bad at cardio as it is, but goodness! After yesterday's 66 minutes of hell with Bob's Strength dvd, I just want to die. I haven't updated my weight stats in a few weeks though because of the holiday, so I need to do that, and I have an updated pic.

Starting weight: 174.6
Monday's weight: 139.9
Total weight lost: 34.7
GOAL: 125

Before....(at 175)

Yesterday at 139

As of now, I'v gone from a size 18 to a size 8. I'm about a "medium" now in everything. For some reason, I'm 4lbs from my lowest weight with Josh but I am a size smaller. I was a 10 when I was at 135 after Josh. Weird! I still have 14lbs to go until my goal though, and seriously I can't wait until I see 120's on the scale. I've never seen that in my adult life....ever. So to make it there would be just amazing to me.

For my records:
Workout inclue
Inside Out: Strength
Cardio Max Levels 1 and 2 (first week)
Beginning to jog consistantly 1 time a week

I'm really not doing this to brag or fish for compliments or anything like that, so please don't think that's why I'm doing this (it takes a tremendous amount of courage to post pics of myself for the world to see of my body AND what I weigh..), but I want to keep a record of everything. If I feel myself slip back into my old habits, slack off, or question WHY I'm doing this, I want to look back at these entries and remember how I feel today. I want to remember the strength, confidence, and overall happiness that I feel right now. Every time I've always fallen short or gone right back to square 1 for one reason or another and I really, really don't want that to happen to me again.

Hoping for 1 more pound this week, maybe 2. I'm starting to fight for every pound now!

Hugs & ♥

Thank you!! I hope I can keep up with this next month coming up. I'm losing about 10lbs a month and I hope I can do that again this month too!

Thank you! I swear I think about it so much that I think that's why I write about it constantly. It's always on my brain since I'm so concious of what I eat and what I'm doing everyday now.

I was so afraid I was going to gain, but I worked out while we were in Florida and I lost 2lbs the week of Christmas! I was totally blown away since I was eating more while I was there. It's hard to resist all of that good food!

Go you!! You look amazing, hun! And you look so much happier!

Totally love that shirt, btw! So cute.

Thanks! I am def a lot happier now, but I'm also at my "comfort zone" on the scale again, which is bad. I tend to give up at this point. I've been 135 almost my whole teenage/adult life. I'm trying so hard to break that! I love this shirt too! I just got it at Khols in Florida. I never thought I could wear a shirt with anything around the middle...it draws attention to my chunky area! But this one actually looked good, so I had to buy it!

Oh my goodness! You look great! I admire your dedication.

Thanks girl! Danny said the same thing the other night, that he's never seen me so dedicated to anything before, especially something like this. I am so close to that goal though, I just hope I can make it!

I find it more inspiring than "bragging" :-)

Thanks! Sometimes I feel like maybe I post too much about it, but since it's my journal I post it for my own personal records more than anything. I want to remember this when I have a bad week!

Not bragging at all! You look so awesome!
