Well, I am still moving right along on my Biggest Loser year. When I went to the gym tonight I realized I had reached another milestone! Woohoo!
Since I started this year, I have lost 30 pounds! That is about 1.5 pounds per week. To look at the weekly accomplishment seems like so little, but it really does add up! I feel really good about my new eating lifestyle and I feel I can keep this going for the rest of my life! That is what is the most wonderful feeling!
I don't seem to feel or see the weight loss as much as I think I should, but something helped me really see it. I have a lovely blue jacket that I wore in January to an interview at school. I was a bit self conscious about how it looked because it was pretty tight. Early this month, one chilly day, I pulled out the coat to wear. Not only did it fit easily to zip but I could wrap it past itself. It actually felt a bit large. That was thrilling.
Here are some before pictures.

Here is 2012
I don't know if you can really tell or not. I certainly have much farther to go, but I feel so much better already! If I can keep this up I will be down 60 pounds by my wedding anniversary in October!
Thank you again, dear friends for encouraging me and praying for me. I am still praying for you too!
With All My Heart~
