- 3Jul 24, '09 by VivaLasViejas GuideUpdate, July 24, 2009: I HIT THE 50-POUND MARK YESTERDAY!!!!!
Generally, I stay off the scales for weeks at a time, but for some reason, a lot of things have suddenly become a lot easier for me the past couple of weeks, e.g. climbing stairs, more stamina at work. So I hopped on the 'cattle scale' at work, and by golly, I was 307 lbs.
Now, yes, that is still WAY heavy, but when you've been closer to 400 than 300, you feel positively svelte. I haven't been down this far in 5 years. And suddenly, everything that seemed hopelessly out of reach last fall is possible again.........I never thought I'd see the underside of 300 again, and now it's only eight pounds away! And if I can do THAT, who knows what else I can do, how far I can go?
