The Good, The Bad and The Not so Ugly

The Good:
I lost 3.2 lbs this week! Woo Hoo! I'm pretty excited about that. I am now officially in the 170's. It seems like I've been setting goals for myself, and am blowing by them so quickly that I can't even enjoy one milestone before I'm on to the next. Don't get me wrong...I'm not complaining about that!

The Bad:
I'm not winning the 12 week challenge I am participating in :( In the last 9 weeks I have lost 31lbs. Almost 15% of my starting weight. Someone in the challenge has lost 15.4% so far. So she isn't that far ahead of me, and I have 3 weeks left to catch up!

The Not so Ugly:
I bought some new jeans this past weekend. Size 12. They were cheap and are cute, and I'm feeling pretty hot in them!

My new goals: Lose 8.4 lbs in the next 3 weeks, bringing my total to 40lbs in 12 weeks. Lose 18.4 lbs before my birthday (February 12) to bring me to my goal of 160 lbs!

Here's me at my heaviest, 82 lbs ago!

Edited to add: I was looking at this picture, and I can see a crap load of nachos and cheese sitting on the stove ready to eat, and Randy is making us big huge cups of hot chocolate! What a dose of reality of how bad our eating habits used to be!


  1. You've already won, Laura! Let that other lady and her 15.4% suck it.
    I still think you've got a chance at winning. Look at what you've accomplished so far! Did you ever imagine yourself here? And here you are! You've proven to everybody, you can actually do ANYTHING.

  2. You are doing awesome!

    You can see the weight loss in your face, and belly...hehe

    Congrats on the size 12 isn't that the best feeling?
