Just for fun because my 4 yr old wanted to take a pic. I thought that I'd share since I'm actually wearing colour today rather than my usual black attire :O)

So, I went for a fitting today for Custom Made Orthotics. For those who don't know, I've been getting some major shin splints when I run and the doctor told me that I need orthotics if I want to continue. Well, I was hoping to still be able to run my 10K race April 15th, but I found out today that it isn't even an option. He said MAYBE I'll be able to do a bit of running with my walking, but I definitely won't be able to run it all as I had planned. It's been 9 days and my shins aren't getting any better, so I'm only allowed to do low impact exercises for awhile. *sigh*....this sucks. But ANYWAYS, a bit of happy news too. My WONDERFUL Dh decided to get me a "goal gift" from him. I guess he figures I bought my own Ipod as my goal gift, so he wanted to get me something special from him. He knows that I have NEVER EVER had a purse worth more than 20-30 dollars (I'm so cheap), so he went and bought me a fancy shmancy new GUESS purse and wallet. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it so I thought that I'd share a pic :O)

He also got me a nice tanktop with wide lace around the bottom to wear under my tshirts so that I won't be so self consious about my belly. Layering works to hide the bulge. He's the BEST :O)

Weigh in this week....GAIN 0.8 lbs. It's all right. I'm not worried in the least. Body Fat percentage went down to 25.5%. I'm quitting the Wendie Plan, six weeks was enough. I'll use it again if I need to, I love Wendie. I think my shins are finally starting to heal up. I had to take 4 days off from activity this week! That sucked! I never realized how much exercise effects my mood! I was a total grouch those 4 days. This will be a better week :O)

I didn't do Wendie this week, and I still lost 2 lbs :O)

I'm going to a house party tonight. Here's a pic of what I'm wearing. These are my "goal" pants. I bought these pants when I was thin, and they never did fit. They were always a bit too small. Now I can wear them, and I even have room! Yippee! Anyways, some of my friends from highschool found me on myspace and invited me to their house for a party. It's going to be so much fun, and best of all I get a night off. NO KIDS! YAYYYYYY!

Today I applied to become a Weight Watchers Success Story, and I already heard back from them. Here's their response...

Hi Shaunna –

My name is ********* and I’m the editor for Congratulations on your weight loss. You’ve lost a tremendous amount and should be extremely proud! The message board petition is very impressive and quite touching too. You’ve clearly been an inspiration to so many others trying to lose weight on the plan. Thank you. We would love to feature your story on the site.

I’m sending you a copy of our success story application as an attached file to this email. If you’re interested, please fill it out, gather the materials requested in the package and then send them back to me. From there, we’ll assemble your file to keep on record. I’m sorry to say we do not have an upcoming success story photo shoot scheduled in Vancouver at this time; however, I will surely notify you as soon as one is in the works!

Looking forward to hearing back from you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Holy, and did I EVER reach goal this morning. I've lost 4.2 lbs this week on the Wendie Plan. Putting me 2.6 lbs under goal. Wow! I think that's a good indication that I can lose a bit more. I'd like to get my body fat% down to 23% and right now it's 25.9%. I'm not going to worry too much about it though, at this point I don't care how long it takes, I've reached GOAL! I can't believe I did it! Well, yes I can! But God, I'm crying my eyes out :O) I'm actually a healthy weight now! For my goal gift I bought myself a green 4Gb Ipod Nano, and my Mom and her DH were so kind as to buy me the Ipod+Nike Sports Kit to go with it (tracks my running). I'm SO excited. Just waiting for it to arrive in the mail.


Seriously, I really want to thank ALL of you for being here for me. You are the BEST support a girl can ask for. You made this journey enjoyable. I had friends with me every step of the way. THANK YOU!

Oh, and here's my proof ;o)

I'm finally in the 160's

I'm down 1.6 lbs this week! I'm 169 lbs now, so only 2 lbs from goal. I have decided that I am going to go below that, but first I just want to get there. So total loss to date is 112 lbs, and 89 of that I've lost in the last 38 weeks (about 9 months). Yes I'm BRAGGING, I can't believe I've done that! Here's a pic of me that was taken 6 days ago. Why am I sharing these pics? Because this was a major step for me. I was afraid of the picture taking that would inevitably take place at our get together. Worried about how I would look. I was actually surprised when I saw the results. I don't look fat! Tall...YES, fat...NOPE, not anymore!
