90 pounds down…

August 14, 2008 at 12:37 pm 8 comments

Only 100 pounds to go.  Or about that.

As of this morning, I am at 260 exactly.  That’s -90 lbs in less than 6 months.  I don’t know that I’ll be able to pull off losing 10 more pounds in 2 weeks, but I’m going to try.  If I can at least say I’m halfway to goal (95 lbs), I’ll be happy.

I have been thinking about my goal a lot lately.  I know that I want to be in the 100s, but I don’t think I can really say at this point where exactly I want to be.  My body is a lot different now than it was when I was 260 before.  At that point, I wore a size 24 pants and a 3x shirt.  Right now, my 22s are getting loose and my 2x shirts are baggy.  Even my shoes are getting too big!  How bizarre.  So, it may end up that I decide I am happy with 180 or 170 or 160 or even 150.  I can’t imagine I’ll want to be lower than 160, but I really don’t know.  Judging by my past, and where I’d like to get back to, approximately 160 fits.

    Congrats on reaching such a big milestone! I have been reading your blog since the beginning and you are doing amazing. I am still in the beginning of my journey, running to millions of doctor appt’s and waiting for a surgery date. I really look forward to all your new posts.
