amandah24's slim down
So many of you girls are posting your weight loss goals and progess on here in order to keep motivated. It's late, and I'm really joansing for a chocolate swiss roll right now, but instead of giving in - I'm going to do the same. So here we go:
Last Monday (9/14), I weighed myself at 158. Now, I'm not comparing myself to anyone or anything because some people could be very happy with that weight. Myself, I feel disgusted. Just 3 years ago, I was 116 and very happy with that.
I started a 30-day diet from www.50millionpoundchallenge.com and so far, I'm doing well with not giving up. I weighed myself today and was happy to see 155. I know I'm not going to lose a consistent 3 pounds per week, but it did get my ambition up to keep going.
I went to try my dress on today, knowing it was probably not going to fit because I've gained quite a bit of weight since I went the first time in May, and saw that I need to lose at least 20 pounds for it to even close correctly. It sucks, but gives me what I need to keep up with this.
My goals: to get down to 130 by July (our wedding month). If I make it there before July, I'm going to keep going, but not go below 120. That would be ideal for me. I'm more on the short side, and that would make me feel amazing to fit comfortably back into my size 5 jeans and size 4 skirts.
I've given up Burger King until after our wedding, and after this weekend (we have plans to go out for my birthday), I think I'm going to take another huge step and give up alcohol until then too. A lot of my weight was put on after I turned 21.
Annnnd - here are some pictures of how I used to look and how I look now.
Prom 2006 - I miss this.
June 2008 - There's no way I'd fit in this dress now
May 2009 - I'd be okay with this even.
155 - today. boo. I felt huge.
I'm going to post on here every week. I guess we'll be going with Tuesday night/Wednesday morning - as long as I remember. I hope I have something less than 155 to tell you next week!
