Waaaaaaaaaay back in January, I wrote about Adam and I having a joint New Year’s Resolution to lose weight/be healthy.  We’ve been slowly reaching our small goals of eliminating unhealthy foods and becoming more active.

But today was a BIG milestone for me.

I know, in previous posts, I mentioned that I hate reading weight loss blogs that specify a starting weight and then go on to discuss how “gross and fat” they were at that previous weight.  Number one, it’s hard to read people beating themselves up.  Number two, weight is very different on different people.  I read a blog once where someone’s “gross and fat” weight was 150 lbs.  This person was also probably 5’1.  Now I, on the other hand, am over 5’8.  I read that blog and thought…150 lbs…SERIOUSLY!?!  I may never see 150 lbs again.  That might even be an ultimate, post-ALL-babies, post-tummy tuck, post-divine intervention weight for me. 🙂  But that’s ok.  Which brings me to my next point.  Number three, when you talk about being “gross and fat” at a certain weight, it shows a complete lack of comprehension of the fact that a lot of people reading your blog are at or above that “gross and fat” weight.  And what are those readers to think?  If 150 is “gross and fat” what does that make 200? Or 250? And so on.  Not a smart move, in my opinion.

So today I’m going to talk about something else.  I’m going to talk about another number.  It’s not my goal weight, it’s not my starting or ending weight.  It’s my “I swore I’d never get to” weight.  I recognize that this number is ONLY a reflection of my individual body size/type.  I swore I’d never get to 200 lbs.

Well, I did.  And then I blew past it.  And then I got pregnant and I blew WAY past it.  But I worked hard, and I lost all the baby weight and then some.  I still couldn’t get back under that damn 200 mark.

But today, I’m proud to say that thanks to a much-too-lengthy case of pneumonia all my hard work, I DID IT! I am FINALLY FINALLY FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYY under 200 lbs.

I don’t write this to brag (ok, maybe a little) but to thank you all for your love and support.  This isn’t the end of my journey, but man it is nice to meet this small milestone! 🙂
