I did it!!!

I lost 50 lbs!!! I did it!! I met my goal before I got pregnant!

I hopped on the scale this morning and that little device that has been my nemesis for years showed me one pound less making it a total of 50 lbs!! I have a friend that sent me an email with pics of ground beef when I lost 18 lbs and told me to think about my weight loss in terms of that. So then I thought of picking up 50lbs of ground beef at the store and wow- what a porker!! It would almost fill up your cart- I was carrying around enough extra weight to be equivalent to a kindergartner. Holy Shit what a porker!

Here's a pic of me at Thanksgiving with my niece/god daughter (Isn't she a cutey?) I on the other hand, look like a fat cow! When I saw this pic after Thanksgiving- I hardly recognized myself.

This is me last week with my cute little doggy by my side!

I am so excited I just had to share! So my body HAS to be ready for a baby or babies now! My doctor said Lose weight to increase your chances of getting pregnant- Done! I do feel a TON better and I think I am physically in the best shape of my adult life.
I know some of you thought' "She got her BFP" or "She's got her quads"! Nope- I am NOT testing early! That will wait until Sunday. It has been a GOOD week so far *fingers crossed*!

You look amazing!! Congrats!! I just want you to know that even though we don't "talk" very much lately, you are always in my thoughts. I hope you have a little something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Seriously? - Erin said...

OMG you look fantastic! You should be very proud of yourself. Losing a large amount of weight is a very difficult feat (I did 40 once).

Here's to more great things this week.
