What It Looks Like To Lose 80 Pounds!

I had a three pound loss this week which brought my total loss to 80.6 pounds! I can't believe it. Today is my 11 month anniversary of starting Weight Watchers. I lost 8.6 pounds just in March. It feels SO good to say "80!"! Here is a slideshow of me and my starting weight and today:

My measurements where a huge NSV for me this week, too! I lost 2.25 inches this month. Here's the breakdown in inches:

Head - .5
Neck - 2.25
Chest -3
Bust -5
Ribcage -4
Waist -16
Hips -11.5
Thighs -8.75 (17.5 for two)
Calves -2 (4 for two)
Bicep -4.25 (8.5 for two)
Wrist -.75 (1.5 for two)

Total inches lost = 73 1/4! My husband is 73 inches tall!

I'm so thankful for the blessing that Weight Watchers has been to me and for the progress that I have had so far. I'm not done by any means, but I'm feeling so great with how far I've come! WW works!

As I was reading over your blog last night, my seven year old daughter saw your picture and said "Mom, tell her I said she looks goooood!" (And that was before she knew this was a weight loss blog.)So I'm here to tell you that both my daughter and I think you look great! Keep up the great work!

Congratulations. This is wonderful. I started at 299, am down to 215, so have lost 84. Very similar to your loss. And it does make a huge difference, rigth? Not just in appearance, but flexibility, energy, outlook, confidence. It's great.

Keep at it. Let's beat the fat fight all the way!
