Down 3!

I'm down 3 lbs. (1.4 kg.) this week for a grand total thus far of 95 lbs. (43.1 kg.) since February.  I am just 5 lbs. (2.3 kg.) from goal!  I am hoping to be there by the end of the year, but I could see it before the end of the month!

I am also wearing a size 14 jeans today.  My sister had some things that no longer fit her so I now have one pair of size 14's.  I knew my size 16's were getting too big, but I didn't have anything smaller to try.  When I began this process, I was wearing size 24 pants and 3X shirts.  Most of the shirts I wear now are size large, but, again, I don't have any mediums to try.  I can't wait to post my goal pic of me in my size 24's now (or 5 lbs. from now).  I know I'll be able to fit into one leg of them.

I also kind of want to do a naked pic with the ta ta's and hootchie-coo blacked out just so you can see all the scars and extra skin and such.  The scars are not fantastic, but there isn't too much saggy skin, all things considered.  Stay posted!

Wow, that's awesome Amanda. My sister gave me two pairs of 14's to work towards. I'm not brave enough to even hold them up against me yet. You are just such an inspiration. I would love to see the skin situation, it would give hope to many!
