Tell All Tuesday - Week 31

I lost for the fifth week in a row! Down 1.8 today!!! That puts me at 17 down in the past 14 weeks. 20 in 20 here I come! Today is Kirstyn's 5th Birthday but this post is about me...I will probably write another one about her later today. I realized that 5 years ago today I was more than 100 lbs heavier than I am today (of course I did have a 9lb 4oz baby girl inside of me). I can't decide if I am more embarrassed that I ever got that fat or more proud that I can even say that.

Now I have a prayer request. I am not feeling very well today. My stomach is bothering me and I don't know if I just have a virus or if it is my Crohn's Disease acting up. Please pray that either way, I will get to feeling better fast. Thanks!!!

You must be proud! That is an amazing feat won only through hard work and dedication.

I was talking about birthing a 9lb 4oz baby BTW!

The weight loss is equally amazing.

Praying for you, no fun feeling awful on your baby's birthday :)

Congratulations Natalie. You inspired me and I joined WW today. I even talked about your weight loss with the leader.

Don't worry about the past. You are working so hard right now you have SO much to be proud of! You should definitely be proud of yourself. Besides, who knows how many people you can help in the future who want to lose weight but feel it's too hard. I'm definitely super proud of you I just tear up every time I read one of your stories. I miss being around you. I'm getting all mushy now. Congratulations on the 17 in 14! You're totally gonna get your 20 in 20!!!!

I really don't remember how I found your blog. Did you have the Blogaversary button on your blog for awhile? I think maybe I had gone to blogiversary, clicked on someone's blog there, and then they had you on their links. I found you and have watched your progress on WW. We are in Austin.
