09-29-09

A few days ago, Orion asked me if I'd ever taken before pictures. Like..before I got serious about losing weight. I surely did. I remember taking them and thinking 'man..why am I even bothering with this? I'm just going to regret having these fat pictures' but I don't. I'm glad I took them because while it's not the end point in all of this? We're halfway there (are you singing Bon Jovi now? Because I am)! Halfway to my goal and anything more than that is just a bonus. My Wii Fit tells me I'm no longer obese (but I do wish they would change my Mii's body type with that achievement! Grr!) and? I'm no longer in the 200+ range. That's right. I'm in the 100's (the very top but still..STILL!)..and you know what? I weighed 205 when Orion came home from Afghanistan..so take THAT! Wooo!!! I'm still barely working out, though, because my foot STILL freaking hurts. I can work out just fine..run and all..but then I want to cry for the rest of the day. It's not good times..but my podiatrist appointment isn't until the 5th..so there's not much I can do except continue to feed myself correctly...with the occasional fast food slip. Whatever, I'm human.

Anyway! So when he asked me that, I put that same outfit on for reference and took a couple of pictures. I was a little bloated from hormones and like..beer..but whatever. I think you can still see a difference..an obvious one.


Before: 230

Who's feeling good? This girl. I hope to be at my goal by New Year's..or at least very close to it. I feel like it's totally do-able.
