Overcoming Obesity

3.... 2 .... 1 .... Lift Off

Okay, I have been stuck in the land of 270ish FOREVER!!!! Almost two months to be exact, I'd move back in forth 278 to 275... then finally 275 to 272.... last week I finally hit 270 pounds and I was just ecstatic. It was my first time to actually hit 2 - 7 - 0. I pumped up my workouts and tried a new workout (Turbo Jam, gotta love it) and today, what do I see on the scale???



Yes, that is right... 268 pounds!!!! Oh yea, that means I have lost a whooping 62 pounds since January 1st! Woo-hoo!!! I am feeling stronger, emotionally and physically and I see my body changing. Sure, there are plenty of things I could pick apart but I remind myself, I am healthier than I have ever been as an adult and I am working on me, which also means loving every bit of myself.

Right now, I just want to enjoy the fact that I have finally busted through the 270's which means I am moving again! I am literally on cloud nine and cant wait to hit the 75 pounds gone.

To make this a little fun:
I have officially lost 200 sticks of butter and a bald eagle .... or
5000 BTU Air Conditioner, a Chihuahua and a rack of baby back ribs .... or
A small bale of hay, a human head and an ostrich egg

I am excited and of course, you know I am ready for a workout! I think I will take my bike out for a nice cruise! Thanks for celebrating with me!!! Woot-Woot!

Houston, she has left the building!!!

  9. You did it! You stuck it out, despite being bounced around in the 70s for a while, and now you are moving down the scale again. Congratulations and well done! When I get stuck (and we all do, at some point), I am going to re-read your post for encouragement. You have to feel FANTASTIC. -75, here you come ...

  11. Hi!! Just found your blog. Congrats on the weight loss!! Whoohoo...it looks like you are doing awesome. I used to weigh 290lbs at 5'2"...so I can relate to having to lose a lot. I lost it all 2 years ago...every last pound and returned to poor eating behavior. I'm now trying to lose what I have regained...ugh.

    Anyhow...sorry to yap too much in your comment section. I'm looking forward to following you :)

  13. Whoo hoo! You're doing awesome!!! I seem to be plateaued in the 270's as well. I've been kind of hovering between 279 and 277 and it's been almost 2 months as well. I changed my routine up again throughout the last week, and we'll see tonight if that made a difference!

    Keep up the great work!
