In the coming days I am going to look back over my posts and remember what I was feeling this time last year. I can tell you that at around this time I had already made the choice to start this plan. My amazing friends Mike and Jen were getting married (It was such a special and beautiful day). I knew that it was going to be the feast of a lifetime so I had decided I would start after it. I was merely waiting for the food and for my courage to show up! I was excited but scared. Scared that I would fail, but mostly to disappoint my family and friends. They have always loved me no matter what size (even if most of the time I couldn't allow myself to feel it) I knew they were scared for my health and finally so was I.
More reflections in the days to come I am sure. For now though it's time to celebrate with another installment of "What does it look like? " You ready???
|I've lost a shopping cart full of sugar! I knew I was sweet but daaammmnnnn|
|I've lost this chair made out of those free AOL CD's that used to litter store registers everywhere. I would like to know who had enough time on their hands to do this (perhaps someone waiting for their dial up Internet to load)|
|I've lost this collection of pull tabs from the tops of soda cans. I'm not sure what's harder to believe..that I lost 152 pounds or that someone took the time to collect these.|
|I've lost this screaming eagle (insert nightmare here) statue carved out of Jade.|
|I've lost this master of the universe..the one and only Darth Vader|
|Hip Hop Hooray I lost the world's largest cupcake!! (even this random lady is happy for me)|
As always I wouldn't be here without the love and support of all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my now much smaller (yet no less powerful in it's capacity to love) heart!
