A Very BIG Small Success #8

I feel like I'm falling behind in my blogging.

I mean, there's no one saying how often I have to blog or anything, but there are a lot of things I want to blog about; my virtual route from December, for instance. However, there's no time. Life is so crazy busy right now that I barely have my head above water. Fortunately, all the stuff that is filling my life to the brim is all good stuff. I'm very blessed.

That said, I cannot let this current milestone pass by without mention:

Today, I hit 150 lbs lost!

I can't believe it! A year ago, the possibility of losing this much weight seemed like a distant dream. Now, I'm wearing a size 16 in pants and skirts and a Large in shirts. I haven't worn those sizes since high school! And, I'm in the best shape I've been in since high school - something that really helped when I was in Paris last week. I walked an average of 5 miles each day, basking in the wonderfulness that is Paris, and never felt sore or fatigued. Seriously, walking around is the best way to see a city, in my humble opinion. I climbed the 286 stairs at the Arc de Triomphe with minimal difficulty and bounded up my hotel stairs with none whatsoever. I felt wonderful!

Now, I'm just a bit away from achieving my next milestone...I'm sure I'll cry when I reach it. I'll keep you updated, you can be sure! Oh, and I'll try to get you a current picture. :)

So that last comment. Whoops. Really supposed to be from this account. Fail. (Hate youtube! I have like three different Google accounts and it signs me out here too.)

Again! Congrats! That's SO amazing!

Hi, I came here from Tearese's blog.

Wow! Congratulations on the weight loss! And Paris? Oh my. Is there a Paris blog? I guess I'll go back and look.

Hey, really congratulations on doing so fantastically well at the shrinking act. I'm dieting too but I've a way to go to hit your goal.
