I have officially lost...

a small child. When I weighed in this morning, I was thrilled to discover that I was down another 5 lbs.(from just this week alone). That puts my total weight loss at 40.4 lbs.. Woot-Woot! I called my Mama this morning to share the good news with her and we likened it to losing Brody :-). This boy(almost)weighs 40 lbs.. He is lean and so tall. When I stopped and really thought about that little fact today, I almost cried. I still have a ways to go to hit my goal but 40 lbs. IS 4o lbs.. and I am doing it. To think that I was lugging that around & working out with those extra pounds on me makes me cringe. I can't imagine running around with him attached to my body...or doing pop squats...or walking lunges...or push ups(you get the idea). Just last week while I was at the gym and running a large lap, I thought (to myself) that I felt lighter while running. I was also thinking about how much I despised running. Just so you know, running is still something that I do NOT enjoy...but I am doing it:-)!

I'm so impressed and proud of you! Even more so since I've been trying to loose weight this year and haven't even lost 5 pounds combined. It makes me wish I lived in Roseville to participate in Green Tomatoes Biggest Loser Challenge.
