Weight Loss

Weight loss is hard.

I've been at a reasonable size for a year now, hoping to lose the last 15 lbs that I set out to lose so long ago, but with no luck this year. In fact, over the course of the year I gained 15... so now I have 30 to lose. Le sigh. I've been mighty discouraged but I've also been mighty lazy. I keep calling my extra weight my winter coat because it came on quickly when the weather got cold. Now that its nice I'm spending some time outside and really enjoying it. I went for a walk two nights ago and last night, a quick run! It was nice, but very obvious that I'm out of shape.

Gotta get to it!

Progress pictures make me feel so much better about where I'm at though, so here you go...

You always looked gorgeous along the way.
No lying though you really look amazing now.

You are beautiful regardless of what your current weight is or is not because you are beautiful on the inside.

Here's to shedding the remaining weight you wish to loose.

I would call that progress extremely impressive! It's so hard to do that. Way to go.
