The Beast Was Nice To Me =0)

Yesterday was the dreaded Wednesday. The day where I have to face the beast otherwise known as the scale and hope and pray that I have lost something other than my mind for the week. I did it yesterday and much to my surprise I had the most successful week I have had in a while. I lost 3.4 pounds!! 3.4 pounds doesnt seem like much to me, but in the grand scheme of things this week was BIG. It was big because this was not the only goal I hit. I also hit a goal of losing FIFTY pounds since having Reese!! It seems impossible to think that I really could have weighed that much more than I do now, but then again I think about it and remember I couldnt even get into the right side of my car because my left leg wouldnt lift up that high! This week was also the half way point of the total weight I would like to lose. I have now lost about 20 pounds. Ideally I would like to lose 20 more. If I can get there I will be back where I was when I was the skinniest I have ever been since high school. I felt good then. I could pretty much walk into any store and wear anything. It's been awhile since I could do that. Heck, its been awhile since I have been able to wear jeans and be comfortable!
Although I only lost 3 pounds, overall this week was big and I need to keep reminding myself of this. The good thing is I am feeling good about myself, and although my body is nowhere near where I would like for it be, at least when I look in the mirror, I know I am working towards making it better, and that alone makes me feel good!

Beth! 3.4 pounds is awesome! And 20 pounds is even more of an accomplishment! I keep thinking if I would've started when you did, maybe I would be 20 pounds lighter too! Keep up the good work!
