I actually did this on Friday, but I went out of town shortly after my weigh-in and didn't have a chance to update.
But man... I feel amazing!!!
I reached 223 lbs and so that put me exactly at 50 lbs down and i surpassed my next short term goal of being 225 lbs which is how much I weighed before I got pregnant with Jett.
I can now fit in to all the old clothes that I held on to. I have a lot of shirts and a few swimsuits and dresses that I couldn't wear but couldnt bear to let go of either. Well now I can wear them and it feels great!! I got rid of all my old jeans though so I'm still wearing super baggy pants for now, haha.
To be completely honest with myself though, I have gone back up a few pounds since then. Like I said, I went out of town. Well I didn't have any extra time for exercise and I ate what was given to me since I was staying with friends all weekend and wasn't about to start demanding they only feed me certain foods at certain times, lol. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and had a wonderful weekend so I let my eating and exercising habits slide for the last couple days. Now that I'm back home though I am counting calories again and working my butt off to sweat off those extra pounds. I don't feel too terrible about the gain because I feel like I really deserved to have this weekend just be enjoyable and completely carefree. I know that if I want good results then I need to put in the work of course, but a break every once in a while is not going to completely kill my plans or motivation to continue this because I refuse to let it. I am taking my time to do things the right way and so if I slip a little on the way I think that's only natural and stressing out over it will not help me out in the long run.
I still wanted to make this update about reaching 50 lbs dropped and my next goal though becuase I did work really hard to get there and don't feel that I shouldn't share that accomplishment just because I tripped up a little after getting there.
