Weightloss Wednesday: Half-way There!!!


12.5 pounds lost... 12.5 to go by the 4th of July!

This dress is a size 10, and I wore it 10 years ago to my nephew's wedding.  Haven't worn it since, because it didn't fit (and I was pregnant twice somewhere in those 10 years).  I finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with all my hard work, which really helps fuel the fire to keep moving forward.

Another wonderful "non-scale victory" today was had when a co-worker commented on my shrinking silhouette.  My only negative for this week is fighting a terrible cold that has kept me coughing and congested.  I haven't worked out in days, so I really hope that by Friday I'll be ready to run again.

Hope any of you playing along at home are enjoying success as well!  Keep up the good work!
*No, I didn't make the dress, and the shoes are amazing, aren't they? Compliments of Victoria's Secret.  Are they a bit over the top? A little.  Do they make me feel amazing and attractive? Hell yes!

WOW! There is a noticeable difference between these pictures and past pictures. You are visibly slimmer in these pictures. Incredible!! Keep up the great work! (Don't feel too bad about not exercising - I'm sure b/c you're sick, you're not eating as much!)
