Update: It's been awhile

It's been awhile since I began this process, almost 2 months. It really doesn't feel like that much time has gone by, but WOW I guess time has flown. The good news is that I have made some solid progress!

I weighed in again yesterday and I am happy to say that I have finally hit my first big milestone! I'm less than 300 lbs now!!! It feels great to be able to say that! I have worked hard to lose my 14.4 lbs! And now the 100 lbs I have to go doesn't seem so scary. I've worked hard, hit some speed bumps, but kept moving quickly after I hit them! There has only been one week where I didn't lose a single ounce, but I blame that on the road trip I had to take that week to move my grandmothers back to Missouri. But the biggest accomplishment in this process so far is that no matter how hard I've fallen off the wagon o' dieting, I haven't gained back anything! I'm sure it will happen eventually. But I am confident that it will take a lot of badness to get me to do it, and right now, I'm willing to fight for my goals!

With the (almost) 15 lbs that I have lost, I have noticed some great changes. I now fit into a size smaller pant, and everything that has been tight on me before feels a lot more comfortable when I put it on! It's hard to look into the mirror and be able to easily tell a difference in my body/face, especially when I look at myself every day. But my friends and family say they can notice some changes, especially in my face. And that's what I like to hear!

Now my small goal for these next few weeks is to get through the show I am in without overeating. Show weeks have always been a struggle for me because I spend most of my time in the car, catching opportunities to eat whenever I can!

Something tells me I'll be fine!

So, until next time....

I'll leave you with a more current photograph, taken backstage this week!
