Today is the 3 month mark. Today I weigh 200 pounds. (Yesterday at the Dr.'s office I weighed 199!)
Today my measurements are as follows:
Hip: 47 (down 2 from last month)
Waist: 36 (down 2 from last month)
Bust: 38 (Chest is 35) (down 2 and down 1 from last month)
Thighs: R-28 L-29 (both down 2)
Arms: R-16 L-15 (left is down 1, right remains the same)
Now to put this all into perspective. The last time I weighed 200 pounds was in 1988. I had just graduated high school and was about to embark on a wild rollercoaster of an education and friendships at the Model College of Hair Design. For then it was my dream to be the hair stylist for Days of Our Lives...just so I could work with that hunk Tony Dimerra. I should have went for it, but fear of failing stopped me.
Today, I try not let fear get in my way of my dreams. If I want something I go get it, even if there is a price to pay. Life is too short to not take that chance on your dreams. One day, all my dreams WILL come true. Only I can make that happen. This I know.
Today, I am proud of my accomplishments and failures. I know you are probably sick of me posting about my weight loss journey, and that's okay, but I do it so I have a journal to scrapbook one day. It's part of my history.
So with that, Happy Friday y'all!!
P.S. GOOD LUCK TO MY NIECE MEGAN MARLAR AND THE FARIBAULT EMERALDS DANCELINE THIS WEEKEND AT THE STATE TOURNAMENT!!! SHINE ON LADIES!!!
