So Close and Yet So Far Away

Remember this post? Well, I'm so frackin' close to meeting my Mexico goal. I had planned to lose 45-50 pounds by Mexico and I am down 44. I have three more days and they will be filled with lots of activity and sweets avoiding. I wore my very first bikini on Saturday with my mom at the public pool. I never understood why women were those. Now I do. It has nothing to do with what other people are thinking. I have never felt so good about myself. I don't plan on making it a habit but when I am just with family in Mexico, I see no harm. Anyway, I weigh less than I did in my goal picture and none of the clothes I wore that year to Mexico are small enough now but I am still not satisfied. I have seven pounds to lose before I am considered a normal weight for my height. I want to at least do that and then some. But, I do plan on having more babies so we'll see how far I get before I start growing again. I am so grateful to my awesome family for encouraging me to be healthy and active. I feel great and I am ready for those pictures in Mexico. At least for now; I might be embarrassed of them later on down the road.Mexico 2007

Easter 2011
(I have lost a little since then but I can't find a good recent one...)And just as a reminder, Mexico 2010

We want a bikini shot! We want a bikini shot!! ha ha. Congrats to you Chelsea, I am amazed at how far you have come!! While you have been losing weight, I've been "happily" gaining (happy meaning I'm happy when I'm sitting on my butt eating but not so happy after). Have fun on your vacation and I'm excited to see the pics!!!
