You guys are so awesome. Thank you for all the kind words. I had so much to loose, it just seemed daunting. Now I am going to try to loose a bit more and see how that goes. New goal is too loose 30 more! :)

I think that's great you broke it up, Sherrie. I have no doubt you can get to your new goal once you set it. Just make sure to celebrate this one big time. It's a big deal!

Congratulations, again!

As for my new goal, I'm not sure I really need to lose a full 30 but I just don't feel like I'm quite where I want to be yet. Maybe another size or two, I might just continue loosing thru the summer and see where I end up.  My husband on the other hand would like me to stop now. So we shall see. :)

Boy that feels good for him to tell you that you have lost enough doesnt it ? What does your son think about his shrinking mom ?

You know what it does! The weird thing is I still feel like that heavy girl. I walk by the mirror sometimes and have to take a second look because I forget that's me. Crazy right? I think the fat girl will probably always linger there in the back of my mind. Once you associate yourself as such it's hard to change it. But I am SO glad the scale doesn't go along with that line of thinking. ;)

I think everyone that has been heavy awhile will feel that way I know when I lost a lot before on WW it took me about a year to realize hey I am thin . Then I got pregnant.  ;D

I cannot WAIT to see the before & after pictures!!  Girl you are a weight loss machine!!  Gosh Sherri, all day long I have been thinking about what you have done!!!  I'm now thinking that maybe I need to cut my carbs back to around 12 - 15 a day or start exercising.   For the past 6 months I have averaged 5 lbs a month.  I am happy about that, but I want to be in YOUR SHOES!!!   ;D   I am just totally amazed.....

The mental self-image of our bodies we've been carrying for years will take time to change.

Like you guys, I still "think" I see a someone who is just as FAT as he was before he started.
But I'm finding that I'm not as surprised when I see my reflection in a window or mirror.
Slow but sure... It's changing. Just a bit slower than my body is changing.
What you do today is what matters!
