A special shout out to Ronnie. Thank you for your vote of confidence. It is much appreciated. I'm only sorry that I noticed the comment today, and not when you posted it.
That brings me to another important point. If you are reading, and would like to comment, please do so. I encourage comments from you people. Tell me how YOU'RE doing with your successes. I'm not a total glory hog. I know of at least 10 people who read this thing on a quasi-regular basis. So.....Post how much you've lost or something healthy you're doing for yourself. I love getting IM's from you guys, but really, post your stuff too, you bad-ass-mother-effers. Tell me what works; what doesn't. Tell me you think I'm fabulous and you're proud of me for being so honest about my ups and downs and my accomplishments (23 down, 22 to go suckaaaaaa!) I don't care, really. Just leave a friggin' comment so I feel like an internet celebrity!!! OK?! Ok. Good. Now that it's settled.
I wonder if I'm going to have 6-pack abs when I lose all of my weight? Like seriously, I spent some time thinking about what my body will look like after having lost almost 50 pounds. Am I going to have a ton of loose flesh/skin hanging off of me? Is all of my effort with the weights, cardio and Pilates going to keep me firm? So far, so good but I do think about these things.
My body is changing in some weird ways. I've been losing huge clumps of hair because I don't have enough fat in my diet. Every time I take a shower, there's a mess in the drain... of my precious hair! WW says to have healthy oils in your diet, and I've done that for the past few days and noticed a little difference. Not as much falling out.
Tonight, I was out for a drink or 3 with two of my friends and I actually saw some people I used to be friendly with in college. One of them asked if I had lost anymore weight since I saw him last, because I looked great. Then we joked about how I weigh less than him now, which was funny, because in college I didn't. Really, it was funny.
Are you laughing yet?
