It's hard to believe I've lost 50 pounds in the past 7 months. But I have, and I couldn't be prouder. Sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and be a bit surprised.... or I'll try on a size 8 dress thinking, "no chance in hell this is gonna fit"... and then it does. And then I buy it. Cuz it's single digits ya'll. And for a girl who felt perpetually stuck fluctuating between a 12-14 single digits are a big deal.
Ultimately my goal is to lose another 15-20. I plan to be a size 6. I will be toned, strong, and healthy. Sometimes it's hard for me to slow down and enjoy my accomplishments. I'm someone who puts my head down and plows forward... eyes focused on the goal. (This constant behavior has even earned me the nickname "Ox."... that and my freakish strength.) Thats all fine and dandy, but when you actually do something like lose 50 lbs. (FIFTY!) it's probably ok to take a moment and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Right?
I created this layout as a little reminder of what a great thing I've done....
Way to go Elizabeth! That's a huge accomplishment and you look FANTASTIC!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your accomplishments. I've been in the process of gaining/losing weight my entire life and I know that it is difficult! Starting our return from mutha effin' pigeon forge baby :) both my hubby and I will be starting the 30 Day Shred program and then jumping right into P90x so hopefully I'll be able to brag like you in a few months :)ReplyDelete
Good for you!!! You look amazing for someone who just had a baby seven months ago!ReplyDelete
