I made sure I got to the gym on Monday and did a good workout - it really was a priority for me. On Tuesday, I found out I was getting a new kitchen floor for free, which was awesome! Made my day! But, my day got even better when Renee' showed up at soccer game that night and I was able to see her and talk to her for a few minutes. I hadn't seen her since before I left for vacation at the beginning of July. It's always fun to see someone when you've lost weight and they haven't seen you in awhile :) I got to play on the field with the kids at halftime, which, by the way, is so much more fun and easier this year! I can chase my nephew around and not even be out of breath. I never realized how much I was missing out on.
Wednesday was the first day with students which, as any first day is, was a little crazy but it was still fun. I loved getting to meet some students.
Thursday was another amazing day. I stepped on the scale and had lost 2 more pounds! I surpassed the 75 pounds and had hit 76 pounds 2 weeks before my goal date! What an amazing feeling! Throughout the day I was trying to decide what my next goal would be. At the time, I was weighing in at 205 pounds (still can't believe I'm putting that out there for the world to know). I decided that my next goal (which I am currently in the middle of pursuing), is to lose another 24 pounds by Christmas. That would make 100 total, which, honestly, seems insane to me. But I really want to try and Renee' thinks it's possible so, that's where my goal stands right now! I'm going to have to keep working at it but I know it is possible. I definitely would not have said that in January.
At my new job, we are allowed to wear spirit wear on Fridays. I was so excited to wear my new t-shirt, especially because it actually fit! It was a size I probably hadn't worn in over 10 years. I honestly think this is one of my favorite pictures...ever!
It's really an amazing feeling to change your life - I still can't believe all the changes I've made in such a short time. But I love the results of everything I've done and can't wait to see what else is out there for me. Plus, there is still so much more to my story that I can't wait to share :)
