I love Bon Jovi. In fact, seeing them in concert in high school at Nissan is definitely a concert highlight. For the past day I've had the lyrics for "Livin' on a Prayer" in my head. Why? So glad you asked.
Because, OoOh, I'm halfway there! Yesterday morning I cheated and got on the scale and had finally hit the 50lb mark! This morning, being my official weigh in day is what counts though, and I'm actually down 52.5lbs! No big deal... :)
I'm taking a page from Cassie's book and making some comparisons... what else weighs 50lbs? I've lost:
1) The combined total weight of all 4 of my pets (and then some)
2) An average 5-6 year old girl
3) 10 giant gummy bears
4) 28" television (old school)
5) 5 x 10lb bag of potatoes
6) Small bale of hay
7) 50 standard footballs
That's gross. And I still have at least one of those above to lose, if not more.
I've been dedicated to the gym (for a whole week now!) and I definitely think that's helping, if nothing else, I feel really good. I'm looking forward to the added health benefits, and hopefully added/continued weight loss benefits moving forward.
To sum up, I've lost 50ish lbs in about 5 months, woo hoo! Here's to hoping the next 5 months are just as successful!
Total weight lost: 52.5 lbs
Weight left: 47.5 lbs
Times at gym this week: 4
