so far.

I'm going to watch four bags of very very nice clothes go away in a friends car tonight.
The clothes need a new home.
My 'home' isn't big enough for them anymore, they are sad and lonely, but not for long.
My friends (several people are going to get to do some free shopping from this load! so fun!) will treat them right, I'm sure.

 In Dec 2009 I decided I was 'sick of being like this'.
Whatever that meant.
Becky and I were on a mission.
Running, Swimming, Yoga, eating right, pouring hot sauce on candy/cookies in the trash so we wouldn't dig them out of the trash, Weight Watchers (for me)...whatever it took.

It's been almost 3 years.
I'm soooo not done, I've stopped and started a thousand times.
I've never gone backwards more than 6 lbs.
Becky has been done, had a baby and been done again (you go girl!)

BUT, I am seeing sizes I haven't seen for over 10 years.
I look like I feel in clothes.
I still occasionally see 'the fat girl' in the mirror, but not a lot.

According to Weight Watchers I have 20lbs to go to be at 'the right' weight.
we shall see?? I'm not sure that I'd be lookin' healthy at that weight but we'll see.

I'm down 53lbs since Dec 2009.

I'm not done but I am not gonna lie and say that I'm not excited to see over 1/2 my closet run away tonight!
And I feel really really good.
(minus the whole, my hips still kill me every once in a while thing...but ya know, other than that, I feel great!)
