Tell All Tuesday - Week 37

I know that all of you are just sitting there with your cup of coffee, pushing refresh on your reader, waiting on this post...the final 20 lbs in 20 weeks post! I know you are wondering if she did it!?!?! Well, I DID! Today I posted a loss of 3.4! So I met and exceeded the 20 in 20 goal!

Okay, here is a picture of me from 20 weeks ago and a picture of me last night about to go out with my hubs in my first ever 'little black dress'!



Okay, now that you have seen those pictures of the modern me.... I would like to introduce you to the 80s me! This is my 5th grade picture. I remember the school nurse lining us up and weighing us all. I remember her calling out all of their weights, 101, 99, 94, 106, and then we got to mine...186. That is a number I will never forget! And now that I am below it on the scale, a number I hope I never see again! Thanks for all of your support. I could not have met this goal without you!

Now, after my 30th Birthday (Thursday), I will be coming up with a new goal for myself. I will share that with you next Tuesday. I will probably have a confession that involves my Birthday cake too! I plan to enjoy the Christmas celebration and my BIRTHDAY and we will all get back to this battle of the buldge next week! However, I don't plan to sabatoge all of this work I have done. I will still go to the gym this week and I will still be eating healthy but I probably won't track on my birthday. I have been doing this for so long, my head will probably track even though I won't write it down!


Oh and Merry Christmas to you!

From a SITSta who has about 75 pounds to lose, girlfriend, you look GREAT!!!

Posting your Weight Watchers weigh-ins and running a 5K! I am so inspired. Keep up the great work.

Kimmy said...

Momma Chae said...

Good for you! You inspire me. I think I'll copy you in some way or another. I've been struggling with my self confidence since I had my beautiful baby girl 21 months ago. I'm still 50 pounds more than I was before I got pregnant.... The baby weight is super stubborn and I've been having a really hard time balancing motivation and depression over doing something about it. It's wonderful that you have such a supportive and accepting husband no matter what!

Honey Mommy said...

You are a hottie!

I weigh less now than I did in high school... and probably middle school too!

Mommy said...

I'm visiting from SITS...congrats on such a great accomplishment. You look GREAT! I've tentatively set a 50 pounds/50 weeks weight loss goal for myself in 2009. People keep telling it is too much too fast, but you've inspired me to go for it! Keep up the good work!

Jen said...

WOW WOW WOW!!! You look SO good!!! Great job! You are one HOT momma!
