14!!!! That is a size of 2 dresses I bought over the weekend. It is such a nice but strange experience. Jason and I decided that we need to out on a date for Valentine's day. NOTE, I will not go out on actual valentines day because it is just too over crowded. We decided to go out this Saturday. Me and one of my best friends went shopping. It was so much fun. There was a large dressing room and we just tried on clothes together, I put on a dress, size 16, I was thinking that it would barely fit....

Things are going pretty good so far. Last Sunday was the first day of training team to start preparing for the Spring half and full marathons. I am training for a half marathon at the end of April. It was a pretty overwhelming experience. I had not seen a lot of the team member since October. Everyone was very nice and complimentary of my weight loss but it was just so many people all at once just amazed at the change, honestly it was a very overwhelming and made me cry on the way home. I ...

Happy Friday. Hopefully I just completed my last treadmill workout for a while! Since we had Snowmageddon on Sunday I have had to do all my runs on the treadmill. I don't know how people do it.

Yesterday was my official weighin at Finish it Fitness and I have lo...

Still in Onderland, whew. After my declaration of being in wonderland, it was my fear that yesterday was one of those quick drops on the scale but then goes back up the next day. When I stepped on the scale this morning, I went ahead and placed the chunk in the 200 slot and the scale dropped hard, that was a good thing to see. This morning I was 198.5, even better.

In the past I would have used a loss as an excuse to eat more. But this time I was motivated to keep the scale under 200 ...

I have been dreaming about this day for 30+ years. This morning I stepped on the scale I have been using for 12 years, it is one of doctor type scales that you move the chunk of weight every 50 pounds. As usually I moved the bid chunk to the 200 slot and the scale dropped. I moved it to the 150 pound slot!!!!! Dead on 199. I cannot even believe it. I went upstairs and got Jason so he could see.

I am just stunned right now. Trying to soak it all in. Even in 6th grade I was over 200...
