Wow, I did it! Not only did I achieve my goal weight, but I am actually below it! My Saturday morning weigh-in was 134.8 lbs!
How did I celebrate? I am not feeling 100%, had to see the doctor on Friday (if you haven’t been following my journey from the beginning, I had an upper respiratory infection in January that turned into pneumonia). Now, I’m on my third antibiotic in 2012, this time for sinusitis. But, I did buy myself two new pairs of size 4 Levis jeans and a really cute size small yellow dress this week!
Here’s a reminder of where I was when I started this journey. This photo was taken December 2011 before starting Medifast (I was approximately 170 lbs). Notice how I strategically place my son and my arm in front attempting to disguise my weight.
Here is another one from December 2011, I was trying to hide my body with the sweater AND my kid.
The photo below was taken this past week while dress shopping with my friend Tracie! There is no kid in front of me now!
Honestly, when I started this journey on January 1, I never dreamed I’d be at my goal weight by week 12 (actually, I wasn’t sure if I’d even make it here because I wasn’t successful with other programs. I would get to a certain point and get “stuck”.)! But here I am and it feels WONDERFUL. Had I known this was attainable, I would have set my goal weight lower.
So, I am now on a mission to lose at least 5 more lbs. My new goal is 125 – 130 lbs!
Month 1: -19 lbs
Month 2: -7.5 lbs
Month 3: -8.7 lbs lost (2.4 lbs in week 12)
Starting Weight: 170 lbs
CURRENT Weight: 134.8 lbs
NEW Goal Weight: 125 – 130 lbs
