6 months down!

Well 6 months from starting Weight Watchers meetings.  6 months and a week in total :)

Last night I lost 1.2 lbs for a total of 43 pounds lost.  About 1.6 lbs a week.  Not too shabby!

So in 6 months,

-I have all "new" clothes in my drawers
-I have gotten rid of 6 garbage bags of FAT clothes
-I have gone from a size 20-22 to a 16, 2x-3x to an XL
-Gone from from a 44F to a 40DDD (granted I was breastfeeding,  I was a 40DD before this baby so my boobs haven't really shrunk at all!)
-All of my underwear are too big
-I have gone down a half a shoe size
-I have lost at least 3 belt holes (the belt didn't fit for a couple of months)
-I can walk for hours
-I can tread water for 45 mins :)
-I can run up and down 20 flights of stairs (my butt hurts from yesterdays workout)
-I can fold my hands in my lap
-I can touch the ground from standing
-I can tie my shoes and breath at the same time!
-I can get in and out of the bath tub effortlessly
-I can play with my kids
-I now think about food all the time
-I panic when there is no produce in the house
-I get up at 5:30am to go to the gym
-I see a nice day and the first thing I think of is going for a walk
-I keep up with the housework better
-I sleep better
-many more I'm sure!

Here's some pics of my journey!

    1. Congratulations on the baby! You'll lose that baby weight in no time! I've lost that much in 6 months!

      Thank you for following! I get a lot of my inspiration from fellow weight loss bloggers too. I feel that I'd be more accountable of I had a following waiting for me to update :P Keep commenting so I know someone is reading!
