April 2010: Woah, I am graduating! Grad school is looking shaky, but who knows? After this semester with my biggest loser peers, and my husband by my side, I'll get through it.

February 4, 2010 - 215 lbs == 46lbs!
February 18, 2010 - 210 lbs == 51lbs!
March 19, 2010 - 206 lbs == 55lbs!
April 18, 2010 - 195lbs == 66lbs!
May 18, 2010 - Goal: 190 lbs

From 2009:
I am getting married November 7th to my high school sweetheart! We dated for 6 years before getting engaged and I hope to be able to buy a dress off the rack for the wedding instead of having to have one custom made in size fat-ass!
Update: I bought a dress! It is beautiful. It will need to be heavily altered (down, not up :D ) but it is just breath-takingly perfect for me. FH said if I make my goal of under 200lbs by the wedding we'll have to get a new dress! He might be right, actually, but who doesn't like pretty dresses :)

February, 2008, I weighed 270lbs.
January 4th, 2009- 261lbs.
February 18, 2009 - 248lbs == 13lbs.
March 17, 2009- 238lbs ==23lbs!
April 16, 2009 - 230 == 31lbs!
May 16, 2009 - 224 == 37lbs!
June 16, 2009 - 215 == 46lbs!

    Thank you for the gold star haha. To be honest, I had 999 points.. and it was the first time since I joined that I specifically went LOOKING for something to do for the extra point because it was driving me nuts! (er.. more nuts? xD)

    Thank you for the comments.. lol I laughed. I don't think it would take a very hard nudge to get from intimdated to hated haha.

    I keep a food blog, which I have sent to her the link to, she they lived with me for a summer.. but I think she just doesn't WANT to cook so isn't receptive.. I guess it's easier for her to just lay that on me. .-.

    Thank you again for the kind words ^-^

    Thank you so much for the advice and support on my blog. You have a good point. I am proud of my diploma. It is framed. And I am proud of it everyday I am at my desk I see it hanging up right before me. You're right, that is the most important thing. It was an amazing feeling. I just have to remember what's important. emoticon
