50 pounds down!! (with pics)

MJ_Watson Posts: 180 Member
Hey, guys! So, I've finally hit 50lbs down (well, 49.5, but who's counting), and I'm just bursting to tell somebody! I'm so close to Onederland I can taste it, and even though I'm probably only about halfway to my goal, I'm still really proud of myself for making it this far!

In the past eight months, I've started exercising and was surprised to discover that I love lifting and -gasp- running! You couldn't have PAYED me to run before. I've also improved my general health a lot, and my blood tests have gone from meh to sparkling clean and fantastic. My body feels strong and healthy, and my knees don't hurt anymore, a persistent pain I didn't realize was effecting me as much as it was to until it was gone. And lastly, I've gone from a size 18/20 to a size 12!! I wasn't even this small in high school!

So, forgive me, but just for today, I'm going to toot my own horn, haha. ^^

And a face comparison between now and a photo taken about this time last year.


Thanks for letting me celebrate! :smile:
