Three months down! A lifetime to go.

Wow.  I can hardly believe it's been three months already since I because the journey to become a Lean Green Mama!  It's been a wild, wild ride these last few months!  There have been things that I thought would trip me up ( Bug had a 13 hour surgery, remember?) that didn't even make me skip a beat, and things I thought were totally manageable (the garage sale last weekend?) that have thrown me off for an entire week!  All in all, it's been a great adventure so far!  

Here's a photo re-cap of how far I'd come before today:

And then...and then today.  Today, I weigh 155.2 pounds!  That's a loss of 36.6 pounds in the last 3 months!  I'm just 20 pounds above my goal!  I only weigh FIVE pounds more than my driver's license says!  Hooray!  I'm hoping that in a couple more weeks I'll be able to say my driver's license tells the truth!  I am super duper excited about this loss.  

As of today, I have lost:

3.5 inches off my bust
6.5 inches off my waist
7.5 inches off my hips
4.25 inches off my thighs

For a grand total of
inches lost!

Holy cow!  I had NO idea it was that much!  36.6 pounds, 21.75 inches!  Yay!!!  I am in size 10 heaven!

That's right.  You heard me.  Yesterday I was at Target for diapers.  I was wearing sweatpants and they were literally falling off of me as I walked through the store.  I decided to stop in the women's clothing section and look at the price of sweats.  I didn't buy any ($17 seemed a bit pricey to me!) but of course I glanced at the clearance section.  They had capris for 75% off...$5 a pair!  I'm not typically a capri pants wearer, but they were cute and I wanted to try them on my new body.  I held up a pair of size 12s, but they looked a little big, so on a whim I bought a pair of size 10s right off the rack without trying them on.  People...they FIT and I am wearing them today!  (Target has different "fits" in their pants now!  I bought a Fit 4...with curvy hips and thighs.  Someday I'll be able to buy the "straight" ones!)  I probably shouldn't say this, but I am SO proud of me! 

And here they are, folks...once again, the before pictures...and then today's 3 months in pictures.  I think the results so far are amazing, don't you?!?  (Oh, and I know I really need to go shopping for some...umm...undergarments...we'll get there!)

Girl you look AMAZING! You have done such a great job. Keep up the great work, and congrats on dropping down to a size 10! :)

GREAT JOB!!! I'm hoping to be more active now that fall is SLOWLY beginning and it's not 90+ degrees out with a humidity index of who knows what. And I like that you took pictures in the same outfit; it really helps show the improvement you've made.

Thanks, ladies!

I DID have to change to different pants...those original pants are totally falling off of me, and I felt like they were masking the actual change. So, for the time being (until THESE are falling off) I'll do pics in the capris. I may change shirts sometime soon, too, as this one is all stretched from my XL frame and I'm a Medium now!
