July 4th- What I'm Celebrating This Year

It's always important to look back and reflect on where you, from where you've come - and look forward to where you have to go. I'm not always great about being "out there" in terms of personal stats on my weight loss.
I'm still not comfortable enough to post before and after pictures- but maybe sometime soon.
However, this morning- I really need to toot my own horn, so hear goes:

My youngest daughter was born on November 17, 2009. Since that time:
- I have lost a total of 54.6 POUNDS!
- That is 19.5% of my starting body weight
- I am now 5 lbs away from the weight I was before ever having children.
- I started running again on January 4, 2010

I have a goal to lose an additional 30 lbs by this coming November (5 months) - by Thanksgiving. I have a 15 yr high school reunion and that weight loss would put me back at my high school weight.

I still have a long way to go - but I can't forget how far I've come and what this means to me. I feel and look so much better now.
