I gotta crow!
I have reached a huge milestone! After years and years and years of being a heavy girl, I have finally reached a ‘big girl’ number! Today I stepped on the scale and was shocked to see that I went from 254 on Jude’s birthday weekend, to 250! It is the number I promised myself I’d not be ashamed of when I got to it. It signifies a 90 pound weightloss at this point. 90 pounds. It also signifies being well over halfway to my goal. I still would like to lose between 60-80 pounds.
250. To some, I know this is still a really big number. I know. But for me, 250 is about what I weighed when Bradley and I got together. I was this size, this weight, maybe less, but we fell in love over Alfredo sauce, pizza, donuts and strawberry soda. I gained a lot of weight quickly.
So I’m in new territory now. My husband has never known me this small. A whole new world…
I’m not sure what my actual goal is except not to go over 215 after all is said and done. Id like to try 170 at first and just see how it feels, how it is to live with, and I’ll make adjustments from there. With my hormonal imbalances, I’m trying to be realistic with how much exercise I can do weekly to maintain my weight. People who reach their ideal BMI with PCOS on the Biggest Loser are always told to exercise 6 days a week for about 90 minutes for life. That sounds intimidating. Possible, but intimidating. I already spend about 60 minutes per day!
