i did it!!!

It took me ten months to gain 50 pounds. Yes, FIFTY!!! And it took me ten months to lose it.

As of this morning, I am officially my pre-pregnancy weight!

And this is how seeing that number made me feel, grey sweatpants and all!


I know I sound like I'm tooting my own horn but, well, I am.

It was no easy feat. I had to restrict calories and workout. I know, wild concept, huh? But it was soooooo worth it! Seeing that number put a little skip in my step today and made me literally do a fist pump in the bathroom.

My goal, or comfortable weight, is still ten pounds away. I can do it. I know I can. If I can lose 50 pounds, I can lose 10 more.

It's not about being hot (although that is nice, not going to lie), but more about feeling like me again. Carrying around this extra baggage brings me down. I don't feel like myself. It causes me not to be able to wear some of my favorite outfits and jeans. I just want to feel confident again, you know? Today is definitely a step in the right direction.

Fist pump!

This is what an extra 50 pounds on yours truly looks like...yikes!

beautifulness.

Lyrics to "After the Storm" by Mumford and Sons:

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That's why I hold,
That's why I hold with all I have.
That's why I hold.

I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I'll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
