Couldn't Weight #33

229!!!!!!  TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY FREAKIN' NINE!!!!  One of you lovely wonderful readers challenged me to be out of the 230's by July 4th and I FREAKIN DID IT!  FOUR AND A HALF POUNDS!!!  Ok we all know one of those was water weight from last week but still THAT'S THE MOST I'VE LOST IN A WEEK IN OVER 3 MONTHS!!!

My brother is my hero ... seriously.  How many of you know big brother's who will sit and read the ramblings of their little sister's weight-loss blog every day offering encouragement and suggestions and motivation and praise and sometimes even a little bit of hiney kickin' when needed?  How many full time computer programmers, husbands, and daddies take time out of every day to let their little sister know that they care and want her to succeed and are watching her progress.

My own mother stopped reading the blog months ago unless I call her up and give her a guilt trip but here my brother has been every single day since the first week I started writing.  I am one really lucky little sister.  I really feel like he has carried me through some of the hardest parts of this journey so far and I think we can all agree that his suggestions and ideas have been spot on every time.

Thanks Bubbers.  Seriously.  I have a lot of people to be thankful for - all of my blog readers and Snackers and friends - but I am thankful for you most of all.  Your support has helped me completely change my life.  Ok I better stop before I start to cry.

TWO-TWENTY NINE POINT ZERO = FIFTY EIGHT POUNDS LOST!!!!  Did I mention I lost 4.5 pounds this week?  *big stupid cheshire grin*

  2. Thanks Prof. D! I can't take too much credit on the awards, I just pilfered a standard ribbon image from google, then added text and recolored them different colors. :) Feel free to use them on your blog if your on the journey!

  5. I knew you could do it!! I just knew you had the ability to get out of the 230s and you did it!! You can't see me but I'm jumping up and down, happy happy! :)

    And it's great that you get so much support from your brother. It's extra special when the support you get - full of honesty and love - comes from someone special to you.

  7. Great job!! So nice to see progress when you are working so hard and I'm glad to see you have upped your cals :) Even if the under eating was unintentional, it was too low for good health. And obviously upping them didn't hurt your weight loss one bit ;)
