Well, I did it! There's no turning back now. I finally reached ONEDERLAND, meaning I'm out of the 200's. This was actually my New Years Goal, I guess that I'll have to make a new one. I weighed in today at 198.6 which means a 3.8lb loss for the week. I've lost 59.4lbs on Weight Watchers now, and 82.4lbs all together (lost some before joining Weight Watchers). I can't believe this! I honestly didn't think that I'd be reaching this important milestone this week, but I did :O) It just goes to show that hard work DOES pay off. I was in that gym everyday this week sweatin' my ass off. Sitting here bawling like a baby, LoL. I can't believe how happy I am.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOO! Can you tell I'm excited? Well, the scale wasn't budgin' this week at all, and I was pretty stressed about it to be honest. HappyChix gave me some excellent advise, she told me to lay off the exercise for a couple of days because I've been so sick this week. I took her advise and didn't workout Fri, Sat, or Sun, and low and behold...I dropped 5.4 BIG ONES BAY-BEE! I can NOT believe I lost that much! So I've lost 55.6lbs in total since I joined WW 4.5 months ago, and I've lost 78.6lbs in total (includes the weight I lost just before I joined WW). I am SO, SO close to Onederland that I can't even believe it! That was my New Years Goal. I guess I'll be reaching that goal sooner than I thought :O)

The scale isn't moving this week and I'm getting really pissed off. I'm sorry ChunkyMonkey, I've cheated this week and been peeking at the scale. I'm bad, I know. I'm getting really frusterated though, the scale isn't budging at all. I've been exercising even though I'm still sick, and for what? It's not doing anything. Weight Loss can be so frusterating. If I don't show a loss on the scale this week I will FREAK OUT. Just a warning to you all, it aint gonna be pretty. On a more positive note, I bought another new pair of pants last night. I got some brown chords, and two plain tshirts. I think I'll wear them tonight :O)

I've lost FIFTY big ones BAY-BEE! WOOT WOOT! I can't believe I've lost my 4 yr old child (and he's a big kid) in weight. He's heavy! I can barely pick him up. So only 7 lbs away from being out of the 200's now. I can't wait to be in Onderland. Life couldn't be better. I met with a group of the Weight Watchers ladies who live in my area on Saturday, and they were wonderful! They do a big clothing exchange at all the meetups so I came home with a really nice shirts (Thank you Susan). It's nice to have some "real life" support. That was my first time meeting people from the internet (besides Coralie), and it was really neat. My last week was really lacking in exercise. I only went to the gym twice during the week. I was so sick though, normally I work out with a cold, but this was more than just a cold. So this week, I must get my 6 days in at the gym. I want to do alot of running on the treadmill this week, so that hopefully I can take it to the road for some real running the following week. I'm also dabbling with Vegetarianism now. It's been a few days since I've eaten meat. It's just really grossing me out now, my tastes are changing. So time to do some research and figure out how to have a healthy Vegan diet :O)

Here's what losing 47 lbs does for ya. I'm still not happy with my appearance, but it is getting better.

So last night we decided to take the kids to McDonald's, halfway there Dh looks at me and says, "Oh no, I'm not going with you to McDonald's wearing THOSE pants". You really need some clothes, we are going to the mall first. So I go into Reitman's and head straight for the 14+ section. Grab about 15 pairs of Size 18, try them on and they are all HUGE! I could fit 2 fists into the front of my pants, so I go back out and grab about 10 pair of Size 16's. OMG! They are all too big too!!! Then panic sets in...what do I do? I don't even know what section of the store to shop in now! This is all so new. So, I ended up being a size 15, I was a snug 22 when I started WeightWatchers. I got to shop in the REGULAR size section of the store, there were so many options that I couldn't decide what to get. It felt so good. Normally, I would have had to buy just whatever I managed to find that would fit, style didn't matter. Now, I got to pick from all the cool clothes. This is a huge NSV for me. Now DH wants to throw out my "fat pants" and I won't let him, LOL. I will posts some pics of me in my new clothes after my shower :O)

Edited to add pics.
First is the "fat pants" lol. Posting so you can all laugh at me (I can't believe people actually read this blog). Second is the nice new ones. 211 Lbs here.

I am NOT weighing myself until WI day. I'm starting to drive myself crazy weighing every fucking day! I need to put the scale away, and only pull it out once a week. *Note to self* NO MORE WEIGHING.

Well, I caved. I had a mini Cadbury Chocolate bar last night before bed. I more than had the points for it though. I wasn't going to indulge in any Halloween candy at all this year. Oh well! I actually don't feel guilty at all, and was able to stop at just 1. The scale didn't reflect the chocolate bar at all, quite the opposite actually. I'm down another 2.6 lbs today. So I've lost 6.6lbs in t he last 4 days. Hopefully it stays that way for WI day :O)

When we were taking the kids trick or treating last night, one of the neighbours two doors up said to her husband (not meant for us to hear, it was while she was shutting the door), "Oh my God! That girl has lost a TON of weight". I know that's a huge compliment but I actually felt really embarrased. I can't believe that I was *that* fat! Here's pics of the kids in their costumes...

Just before trick or treat time, all the kids switched costumes! Jade isn't in these pics but she changed to "Tigger", and the boys were Batman and Superman. Kids! They just can't make up their minds...
