Nutrisystem Week 17

What is 25lbs?

It's week 17 on my Nutrisystem diet and while I was taking a shower I got to thinking about what exactly has changed since this project began. I don't have any measurements to go off because I was too mortified with myself in the beginning, heck I didn't even take pictures until I was down to 200 lbs (yeah, not showing that one until this is all over), so I made a list of what has changed and here it is:

What 25 lbs is to me:
  • Wearing my size 6 wedding ring again (down from a size 7.5 ring)
  • Going from a size 2x shirt to lg/xl shirts
  • Going from a 42DD bra with extender to a 38D
  • Wearing size 16 jeans (loosely) instead of being an Oreo cookie away from a size 20 (I'm actually pretty sure now, that I should have been in a size 20)
  • The pure fact I can sit up easily without struggling (yeah it was that bad)
  • Having the ability to walk down the street with my daughter without becoming breathless
  • Being able to look myself in the mirror every day and smiling (we don't even have a full length mirror in the house, that's how far gone I was)
  • Standing on the scale and being thankful for what I lost and remaining opptimistic that there is more to come (off)
  • And most important: Happy. Losing 25 lbs has changed my mood from despondent, unhappy, short tempered depression to happier, much happier. I laugh more, I have an aura of confidence, and I take a deep calming breath before I over react. Everyone has noticed a difference, including myself, and it feels good; I feel cleansed.  
While I love all of the things that have changed about me, my favorite is the happiness, more specifically the fact that I laugh more, it really does feel good to laugh again. I didn't realize how miserable I was, I mean I had a clue because I was just so bleah, but looking back it was quite severe; I'm glad things are changing for the better.

The end of this post is almost here, so lets get down to the nitty gritty. This week I lost .8 lbs, bringing my total weight loss to 26.2, which means I'm less then 10 lbs from my goal weight and 3.8 lbs away from my 30 lb Nutribear! I can't wait for both :D
