I FINALLY got unstuck and i'm back on track...

"Keep going. That pain you feel? That's fear melting away like wax off a candle. That's weakness washing out of your pores like a monsoon. That's the old you being shed away like dead skin. That's the new you, rising out of the ashes of your former self."

Lost 5 lbs. this week
Total weight loss: 23lbs.

Pants that fit me 2 years ago!! I fit in them now!! whoot whoot!!!

Top pants used to fit me 4 months ago. middle pants used to fit me 7 years ago. bottom pants fit me 2 years ago!!

These are the pants that i used to fit about 7 years ago after i had my son. He's 8 now!! I fit in them again!!!
Guess what everyone!!! I got unstuck finally and i've lost 5 more lbs. this week. I have lost a total of 23 lbs. to date!!! I tried on a pair of my pants that i kept after i gave birth to my son and guess what.. they fit. no sucking in the tummy.. no jumping up and down to try to fit into it. No laying down on the mattress with a nose plier trying to zip up the zipper. Nope I just tried them on and they fit. 7 year old old navy khaki pants size medium. I even tried on a blue pair jeans (levi's) that fit me 2 years ago and that fit too. I've enclosed a picture of what my jean sizes have gone from. Though i would love to go shopping for new clothes I have decided to wait till i have reach my goal weight. I can't wait till i get there. Goal of 5 lbs at a time. I have 25 more lbs to lose.
Can everyone believe that christmas is almost here?? 7 more days to go and 5 more days till my birthday!!! Super excited!! I will be 31 this year. I am looking foward to 2012. This i feel will be a great year!! I can't wait. I hope everyone has a great christmas and a great new year!! 2012 Here we come!!!

What is your biggest achievement of the year?

My biggest achievement this year is still being here alive and kicking. I lost a family member this year (he was only 35)  and that was my wake up call. That was when i decied to make a change in my life and change how i live. After much pushing and encouragement from my beastie Shannon I joined mamavation and i am so glad i did. I have achieved so much in such a short time. I am glad that I get to wake up everyday and spend more time with my family. I am thankful though I wish i could turn back the time that I got my wake up call. I wish i could bring my cousin back but i'm also thankful tha it finally made me realize i need to get moving and make a change if i want to still be here to meet my grandkids.  I have lost 23 lbs to date. My next achievement this year is doing my first 5k in October. I am just glad that i finished and that i did it for a good cause. It was a charity run/walk fundraiser 5k. It felt good do something good for me and for someone else.
