The Weight Update

03/29/2008; 184.5 lbs. Six more pounds! (And my hair still looks cute! Seriously, this is the best haircut I've ever had.)

I've been struggling these past two weeks. First of all, I've really been craving some Doritos. Actually, I've been craving lots of starches. I'd been weighing everyday, and the scale just wasn't telling me what I wanted to see. I was only seeing a loss of three or four pounds, and it really got me despondent. By this past Friday, I was a wreck. My work suffered, my relationship with Richie suffered, and when I got home from work, I just broke down and cried. When Richie came home, he gave me a great pep talk, which is exactly what I needed.

Weighing in on Saturday was a delightful experience, and I even decided to go out and buy myself a new pair of jeans, since all my others were completely falling off of me and giving me a serious case of baggy-butt.

Saturday's weigh-in makes for a total loss of 22.5 pounds. I don't know when I've been so happy with the way I look, and I cannot tell you how great it is to see my progress--look at that picture.--I have a waist! And to have the support that I have, cheering me on the whole way, makes it even better.

Hoping for six more in two weeks!

Congrats! I think a pair of new jeans is the perfect reward! BTW--baggy butt is the worst.
