Day 187: Another HUGE milestone!!!

Yeah!  After many months of plateauing I did it!  I lost 4.2 pounds!  YEAH!!!  I also hit a MAJOR milestone!  I have lost THIRTY POUNDS!!!!  Yeah,  It feels so good.  I do have to say that my new diet (see post from last week) is really easy, isn't anything "bad" in the world of dieting, no pills or special powders.  Just eating the right amount of foods!  It is easy, it is doable and last week I had my biggest weight loss week!  How fun is that?!?!  It is so super duper fun!!!!  It feels so great, so amazing!  I can hardly wait to get to My Plate and report my weight...ok, so I really couldn't wait and I just went in and put it in there.  I am getting my BMI closer and closer to normal.

ALSO, this weekend, I put on and wore a size 14 pant!  I was elated.  I started out as a size 22.  It feels amazing to be 30 pounds lighter.  It seems that the first 20 came off so fast and then I had a huge long plateau, and then this 10 pounds came off pretty good too.  I just don't understand why I had such a long plateau.  Last week, my friend Cheryl said that our bodies sometimes need change.  If that was it I love the change too.  Having a diet that isn't hard makes my life so much easier.  I was never hungry last week, I got to eat plenty of food and I lost tons of weight.

This weekend, I walked again, like a crazy person.  I walked a nice 6.6 miles with Gary and we pushed the littles in the stroller.  It is much harder to walk at a good pace and push the stroller.  We took turns pushing.  Pushing a stroller while walking burns just about 100 more calories an hour!  So there is that bonus too.  I enjoyed the resistance.  Then yesterday i walked the 12.2 miles home from church, I got home at 3:15, took a shower and turned around and left at 3:40 for a super fun photo shoot!  Then Gary and I took the kids to the park.  So I definitely burned my calories yesterday!!!

This is a new week with many fun things ahead!
I am proud to report 182.4!  30 pounds lost!!!  I am excited about my next small goal of being in the 170s!  :o)

Have a great week!!!
