I was getting ready to throw the scale out the window. Well, I would have thrown it out if the windows weren't frozen shut ;) I have been struggling with 2-3 pounds for a while now, up and down, down and up. I never thought I'd get here but I did!!! Today's weight was 285.8! I have now lost 20.2 pounds! Yay!

I have 9.8 left too lose, give or take a little. The bariatric center wants me to get to 282 fully clothed (which adds about 3 pounds). So technically I could get to 279 and probably be OK but....I am hoping to lose the full 9.8.

These 2-3 pounds were tough ones and it makes me nervous about the remaining 9.8. I hope they all don't want to stick around as much as these did. Listen body, I know it's winter and fat is an insulator but I promise I will wear layers!!

A few people are noticing the weight loss now. My chiropractor asked last night and then said that usually around 20 pounds is when it is noticeable. My son's speech therapist said my pants were fitting me differently. I don't remember what I said exactly but what I wanted to say was "yea, my sausage thighs and fat ass seem to not be shrink wrapped in them anymore." Everything fits better and I have a few pairs of pants I am hoping to shrink into soon.


  1. way to go!!! maybe that 2-3 lbs was a plateau???

  2. whatever it was I am glad that it is over

  3. Yeah!!! That is so exciting Colleen! Now that people are starting to notice it will be easier to stick with it!!!

  4. Congratulations! You are an inspiration, Colleen!! :)
