Weight Loss is great!

Back in April of last year I decided it was time for me to figure out a way to lose some weight. I was pushing 200 pounds and that scared me. I decided to eat better and work out some. So I started eating better (so I thought) and I started walking on the treadmill. I lost 17 pounds from April to June. I was so happy that I had lost 17 pounds in a little over 2 months.

Then I got sick and couldn’t work out for 3 months. I was in sever pain and spent about 9 or so days in the hospital. I had a hysterectomy at the end of June. On my birthday to be exact! What a birthday present, I know. But with the pain I was in for two weeks out of every three weeks, it was worth it.

After that I thought for sure it was going to be a struggle to lose weight. I will tell you, it hasn’t been a struggle since I started Weight Watcher’s. I have a great support team. They are my husband, my mom, and my sister. They are so helpful and full of encouragement. So between the Weight Watcher’s, the workouts I do every day, and my awesome support team, I’ve lost 20.5 pounds since November 11. Since April when I started my weight loss adventure I have lost 37.5 pounds.

Earlier this week I decided I needed to go clothes shopping. The main reason was due to my pants almost falling off when I stood up. LOL! I have dropped 4 pants sizes and I’ve gone from an XL (which was tight) to a S/M. My husband wore 2XL shirts and even those were getting to be to small. How scary is that?

I feel wonderful and there is only more to come. My goal is to lose another 47 pounds. It may take a while to get there, but you know what? I’m determined to get there. I will look great and I can’t wait.

The pictures below show a loss of 35 pounds. I will update it again soon.
