So. Um. I don't know how, but in the last week, I lost 6.4 pounds. yes, that is in fact a damned lot. No, that is not a normal thing. This brings my grand total to 48.2 pounds lost. Um. Damn. Also, this is 20% or so of my starting weight at the end of August. Again, Damn. I will not pretend that this has been easy, or that it has been fast. But it has been worthwhile. It is amazing to see pictures of myself taken 1 year ago and to compare them with what I see in the mirror today. It is good to know that I can go shopping in regular clothing stores, and I'm not relegated to just Lane Bryant. Hell, when I started, I couldn't even fit into Old Navy sizes at all, and now I'm a 16 there. So I'm down like 4 pants sizes.

This is feeling more and more plausible and possible every day. I've resumed journaling my food pretty consistently. I'm trying to be honest with myself and making more healthy choices.

The scary thing is, I've still got 40-50 pounds to go. O_o

I had a random week two weeks ago where I mysteriously dropped 5.5 lbs. Every other week has been 1 or 2. Don't know what's up with that but sometimes it happens I guess. ::shrugs::

Go you, though. :)

Congratulations Jess! With getting my thesis done (due next week), graduating on may 20th, ive kinda lost total track of my apprearance. So as a new start on life, usually is after graduation, Im going to go on a diet and join a Gym. Im hoping to find a good one in the Boston area (Im moving in with my fiancee in Malden) Oh..an yes, Im engaged :) We should keep more in contact and hopefully, maybe get together sometime. But, again, congratulations :)

Wow, congratulations! (I wish I could boast the same success rate. I lost 30 pounds after college, but then put it all back on.)

Yay for skinny Jess! :-)

My temporary goal is to lose another 10 before I leave NM... which will bring my total to 33 since New Years!!! But still... I'll have like 80 to go. :-( Scary thought. *sigh*

Anyways... keep it up! I'm so psyched for you. :-)
