Sorry, but I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to post. On Saturday I reached a milestone: 30 pounds gone!
That is a lot of weight, especially on someone as impossibly petite as I am. Seriously, I am a shrimp. I’m 5’4″ but for some reason it seems like I am much smaller. Maybe I hang out with a lot of tall people. Regardless, I couldn’t really tell the difference, despite the 30 pounds. My clothes seemed a little bit looser, but not by much. Then, I went jeans shopping. Whatta ya know–2 sizes smaller!
I was going to write a huge long post about what worked and what didn’t, but then I realized that maybe, um, no one cares! Everyone always asks for pictures, so I decided that since I already posted a haggard picture of myself earlier this week, there shouldn’t be too much harm in posting a disgusting before picture.
So, without further ado, here I am with the family on Easter Sunday.
And here I am on Thursday, June 4, 2009. Mikey took the second picture.
If I had to credit one thing over the last 57 days it would have to be Jorjana, an attorney who happens to read my blog and emailed me regarding my weight. She has been an immeasurable help everyday, several times a day. She is an incredibly inspiring and motivating individual who successfully lost a great deal of weight 6 years ago. I’m trying to convince her to start a Life and Wellness Coaching business. Seriously, she is that good.
I still want to write a post about a few things I have learned along the way. Is there anything you would like me to write about? Feel free to let me know in a comment or send me an email. I’ll try to answer the questions to the best of my ability. Just keep in mind I am a rookie and still struggle to figure out what the hell I am doing most days. Oh, and I still have a crap load of weight left to lose.
In other words: I’m no expert and any subequent posts on achieving weight loss are as much for me as they are for anyone else. 🙂
