30 lbs!! woot woot!

been trying to keep the weight loss on my Sparkpeople blog..but just had to celebrate! I got a fun surprise last Thurs morn...30 lbs gone. I now weigh what my drivers license says I weigh (does that mean I gotta change it, cuz we women always underestimate)

and yes, went out and celebrated with that Red Robin Royal burger I've been promising myself since my 10 lb loss. Okay, had 1/2 of it, with no cheese and gave mom the bacon...also had a side salad instead of, kept it down to about 700 calories. (a lot for a single meal)

My first time to try the royal (with a fried egg) and it was YUMMY!!!!!

So, I guess I'll get another one after my next 30 lbs!

okay, here is the ugly...

I took this pic at @20 lbs pants are a li'l loose around 'Beatrice' (that's what I named my tummy)

took this one of her Thurs morn...sure ain't pretty, but it's PROGRESS!

so, my mom, being her usual outspoken self asked yesterday, "what are you going to do about your 'floppy' skin? I know there is surgery, but you don't do that"

I told her, "gotta exercise so it will tighten up", I guess for the next phase I'll be looking for good ab exercises..tempted to try some Jillian Michaels but also very intimidated. Feel like I gotta be in shape for her dvd's.!! But, I'm getting there!

Karen, If you can do 2 miles on the treadmill at night you can keep up with Jillian Michael better than I can. She totures me but its a good torture. I cant make it through the whole DVD yet but I feel better when exercise with her DVD's. I have a few of them you can try. Melissa is borrowing them now after she's done you are welcome to them.
