As I posted yesterday, I went on a trip with the hubby! The hubby told me that, once I lost 40 lbs that he was going to take me on a trip....so we went to Florida:) Fort Meyers beach, Florida and it was well deserved and needed!!! I loved every bit of it. It was very relaxing, and fun! We actually got a pretty good deal through Allegiant and the resort was very nice! I think it would be a great spot for families because it's in a quite neighborhood and it seems to be very safe. We went jet skiing with dolphins and even got the jet skis up to 55 mph...which was exhilarating:)
Hey Everyone!!! Sorry I have been MIA for SO long...I have been really busy between: the holidays, school, staying healthy, and spending time with family and friends! It's crazy that the time has gone by this quickly already. I can't believe it's almost Christmas!!!! I have lots to share with you all:) First, about a little over a week ago, I hopped on the scale and couldn't believe what the scale was telling me.....well I could because I have been working my booty off! I was down another 10+ lbs:):):) That puts my total weight loss at 41 lbs!! I'm super duper excited and am happy to tell you I am down to 156 lbs. The last time I saw this number was when I first started teaching 6 YEARS ago! It's just nuts!
I wanted to show you all my before and after pictures, so you can see what 30 lbs looks like. Just a reminder for everyone, I started out at 197 lbs, but I didn't start taking pics until 188 lbs. I was just too ashamed to take my pic, but I got enough courage to do it eventually:)
Here is the side view:
I can't believe that this is only 30 lbs, I'm wishing now that I would have taken a pic when I was 197 lbs. Then it would be a true comparison of what I really lost! Oh...well...shoulda. coulda. woulda! I used to wear a size 15/16 in misses and now I can wear a 9/10 in misses!
I know that 40 lbs really isn't a HUGE amount of weight compared to others who have lost weight, but for me it is HUGE! 6 months ago, I thought that I could not lose any weight and that it was impossible. Well, I definitely proved myself wrong and it just makes me feel so great, like I can do just about anything:)
I still thank my lucky stars to have such a wonderful support system that has been there for me throughout this whole journey! Thank you SO, SO much for always being there for me and you know who your are:)
