I have left the 250s behind!!! This morning when I got on the scale it said 247! 3 pounds gone! I am feeling pretty good about all of this (except for the cold I have right now), and am that much closer to my goal! I have lost 20% (well, actually it's 21.3% but who's counting - not me of course) of my 1st goal of 61 lbs.
I had a pretty great NSV on Friday, too. We went to civilization to do a lot of our Christmas shopping. Since my pants aren't staying up, I needed to find another pair. When we got to Old Navy, I checked out their clearance section. They had a nice pair of black pants in a size 20, so I grabbed them and took them to the dressing room with me. I got a great shock when I buttoned them... they were loose! Like not falling off my rear end loose, but still, they were loose! And when I showed Brian, he said it seemed like a goofy idea to even get them because they didn't look like they would fit me for very long and I'd be in the same place I am right now. So I grabbed the pair of 18s thinking there was no way, but guess what??? They buttoned too! And not the ohmyGodIcan'tbreatheinthesebuttheymakemelookskinniersoIamgonnasufferthrough buttoned. They are snug in the waist and the legs, but I can wear them just fine! I had planned on taking a picture of myself in them as a reference point, because I do have room to lose, and they are SNUG. I still plan on doing it, but right now I have the head cold from hell, so it may be a few days. And this cold better not get in my way too much. I don't see how I am going to run yet... BOO! but I will try to figure something out!
Oh, and I did Week 4 Day 1 on Saturday, and it was GREAT! I ran for SIXTEEN minutes total! That's 2x longer in one workout than I ran during Week 1! I ran for 5 minutes without stopping. It was awesome!!!
