How Much is 40 Lbs?

That's right, I am 40 lbs lighter than I was when I started out just 5.5 months ago. It's been a long, hard road at times, but I am so glad to see the weight falling off. One more pound down, and I will be the lowest I have been in probably 6 years. WooHoo! So what does 40 lbs look like?

Well, this fish weighs 40 lbs:

And this shark too!

That's amazing! Only 60 more to go to a healthy BMI! I am 40% of the way there! Finally it feels like I could actually do this!

Can I Get a Hoo-rah?!

Hopped on the scale this morning to see another pound bite the dust. Total loss of 40 pounds! Dance! Dance! Dance! WooHoo!!!  That's 40% of my goal, which is awesome, if I do say so myself.

Now if the rest of my life will just sort itself out, LOL

But really, I am feeling better about things. I've gotten back into the routine of praying, and reading my scriptures. Not that I really quit doing it, but I am back to doing it every day. And that seems to have helped my attitude at least.
