angiekae68's Journal, 21 December 2012

171.1 lbs. this morning; BMI 33.59. Only 6 pounds away from my first big goal :)

I feel so good about myself these days. There are so many little things that happen throughout my day that make me smile and make me feel so proud. Like putting on my jeans fresh from the dryer and not having to struggle to button and zip them. Not having to pull the seat belt in the car out 2 or 3 lengths just so it will reach around me. Being able to bend over and tie my shoes (with my jeans on) without sweating and almost blacking out. Shopping without the aid of a basket to lean on 'cause my back hurt so badly. Putting on a shirt that looks way too small, and it fits :)

When I changed my eating habits a little over 4 months ago, I never dreamed I would be at this point this soon. Every time I look in the mirror, the transformation I see is so surreal.

Road trip today to Oklahoma to pick up my niece and her children for Christmas. I made some pork/hamburger/parmesan muffins to take with me, and of course I'll have plenty of gum and water. I'm addicted, I tell ya.. lol

Hope you all have a great Friday!

Woohoo, go angie! I love how many little moments you have to remind you of all the awesome progress you've made, and its brilliant that you are so close to achieving such a big goal already. You're weeks ahead of schedule! Its also cool that you prepare so well in advance for things like road trips, strategic planning like that is definitely a key to success! Hope your road trip goes well and keep enjoying your fantastic success, you deserve it!

Angie... I am so happy for you! It reminds me that if I had stayed on track, I would probably be where you are. :( We hit 179 around the same time and then I started messing up and still haven't been able to completely get back on track! You're doing so great!

Ooooh Baby Girl in the world! Angie, I am so hap-hap-happy for you! It's not just your weight loss that inspires me, but that you are so in the moment with each up/down/sideways you are living. Your raw honest pep talk to yourself last week, today's 'atta-girl' journal entry are so from the heart; it reveals how intentionally you are living. It is a privilege and a blessing to witness your journey. ♥

WAY-T0-GO ANGIE!!! I absolutely love reading your journal entries. You are an amazing woman with amazing perseverance. It has truly been a blessing to be able to watch your journey as I travel mine (much slower I might add). You have an amazing story and you should be proud of everything that you've done! You deserve that. Enjoy your trip!

Congratulations Angie!!!! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Horray!! Way to go girlie! Sounds so good to hear you so happy, you have come along way and it honestly makes me realize that this hard work pays off! You have been a great inspiration and support system from all of us and you deserve this wonderful feeling and achievement! I know you were ecstatic when you put the jeans on and you slid into them, actually bending over and tie-ing your shoes without panting/sweating - girl those are achievements that are appreciated, and there are many more to come! You've been oh so awesome to us, and I myself am glad that I joined the Fatsecret community and most of all I was able to meet you! So go 'head with your bad self!! Make sure you put a little more tilt and bounce in that walk now! ;) You're awesome!! Have a wonderful day!

Angie, I've never read your journal before but you are buddies with one of my buddies and you were so encouraging with him that I had to check you out! I've lost a lot of weight too, and I totally get what you are saying about it being surreal when you look in the mirror. Sometimes I don't even know how I appear to other people, still think of myself being fat when they perceive me as normal. And you sound like me with gum, I chewed so many pieces of IceBreakers that it gave me potty issues. Keep up the work and motivation, you are inspiring!

All of your comments just totally made my day ♥ You guys have been so supportive and encouraging. I've known some of you longer than others, but your friendship and motivation throughout the many stages of this process has been so beneficial to me. And I'm not done yet, so y'all don't go anywhere! LOL! I'm so happy that I have met all of you, and Djburney, it's very nice to meet you! Thank you for wanting to "check me out"! LOL!
