I ate all the right things this week and I worked out every day.
When I stepped on the scale, it read that I lost EXACTLY 2.2 lbs!!
And that's what I needed to lose this week to get to my goal!!
So, ladies, I have reached my goal of losing 20 lbs!
I've very excited and very happy.
I lost 20 lbs in 12 weeks and my average weight loss a week was 1.7 lbs which I think is excellent.
This week I'm going to be slowly adding the carbs back in and I'm still going to be eating healthy foods. I can't go back to the way I was eating before.
I also think I'm going to start the Couch-to-5K this week!
I'll keep you updated on that also! :)
Some of you asked for some before and after photos, so here goes nothing!
This is me before I started losing any weight at all. This was the summer of '08 and I'm the 2nd from the left, obviously. Ugh. Seeing myself like that makes me disgusted. I can't believe I got that big. I was 60 lbs heavier!
Before I lost 20 lbs:
I'm obviously more tan than the after picture. This picture was taken in Novemeber but between Novemeber and when I started losing weight, I maintained the same weight, so that's why I added this picture
After losing 20 lbs:
I'm so happy that I'm done, even though I still want to lose 5-10 more before August (am I weird?)
I also want to say thanks for all my readers for all of your support!!
You really motivated me throughout this process! :)
Have a GREAT Sunday! I know I will! ;)
