Day 155 Hot 100 Update, Huge Weigh In, and Picture History

Wow, I am riding a high today!! I had a great weigh in! I lost 8 more pounds, for a total of 81 pounds lost since July 17!! Waaaaahoooooooo! I was just so happy to see that number this morning! I am at 216 pounds now and I know for a fact that I am now slimmer than I when I left high school! How cool is that!? In fact, here is my senior picture:


and here is my latest picture, taken this past Sunday:


Now I had good some good times in between:


but for the most part this is what my adult life has been like:





So there you have it. I have come a good long way in the last 5 months, and I am glad for it. I can't begin to tell you how much of a difference losing weight and getting in shape has made in my life, both physically and aesthetically.

as for my Hot 100 update, as you can imagine, doing pretty dang well. I did slip AGAIN and had a fresco chicken burrito supreme at Taco Bell the other day, then it dawned on me again that the tortilla is white bread essentially, but apart from that, no white bread is good. I am at 216 pounds now, and I think with some hard work and determination, I can get that last 6 of to get to 210 pounds by New Year's Eve, and I did run a full 5k, not as fast as I was wanted to. I was just a shade over 50 minutes, but I think I am going to shoot for it on Sunday and see if I can get it in the high 40's minute wise.

Well I am signing off here so that I can sit in my recliner, watch Lord of the Rings, Return of the King, and just chill. I never get to do that any more. Out of school, no work today, and the girls are at a lock in for Girl Scouts, and I am on my own!
