The journey to NOW...


How did I get here...

Now that the blog challenge is over, and I have moved my blog to its new home, I have started thinking about what to do now.

I started this blog to document my weight loss journey, so I think that I will return to that.

I really started this journey about 6-7 years ago, I weighed the most that I have ever weighed and that fact really stands out in my wedding pictures... This is me on my wedding day. I hate looking at this picture because I can't believe how big I was. I was 305lbs (138.35kgs). This was in August 2008. Its very difficult to display your wedding picture when you hate the way you look in it!

Then a few months later, my best friend came to visit from Florida. She brought her two littles with her, we went to hang out at Lake Tahoe for the day and she started taking pictures...

I recently found some pictures from that day and immediately wanted to erase them from existence. But then I took a breath and said to myself that this is where I was, I am NEVER going to be there again.

So I guess this would be my BEFORE picture. I can't wait to get to my AFTER picture. But I guess I need to take it slow and go through the DURING phase. That is where I am now. I weight 228lbs (103.42kgs) now. I want to be so much less. My goal right now is 150lbs (68kgs) but, my current little goal is just to get below 200lbs... I can't wait to get to Onederland!!!

  6. I think the "during" phase is always the hardest...no matter what goal you're trying to accomplish. Setting a goal is inspiring and reaching it is great, but putting in the work day in and day out is really tough. It sounds like you've already made amazing progress!
