The big 4-0

That's right. I turned the big 4-0. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be....(pssst...I was born in 1980, you do the math).

That's right people. I hit 40 lbs lost on the scale this week. (Weirded out is still the phrase of the day).

I really never thought it would be possible. Let's do some reflecting as well as looking at the future.
I'm a little hesitant to look back because I sort of want to slap myself. (I know, get in line, right?) I think about how happy I am now. For as many people who have told me that I seem so much happier, I can't believe how obvious it must have been how terrible I felt about myself. I wish there was a way I could go back and view myself like I was watching a TV show and look from the outside....I imagine it would be a giant eye opener.
Which then brings me to the point about how much time I've wasted. I'm not even going to talk about that anymore. I'm just going to leave that out there.

Looking to the future, Monday starts hitting the gym again. (Stay positive, stay positive, stay positive...a fork in the eye WILL NOT feel better than going to the gym)
I've lost 40 lbs in just short of 2 months. 2 more months from now is my first wedding dress shopping experience and I hope that I can lose another 40 lbs.


  1. Woo Hoo! Congrats on the 40lb loss! That is AWESOME! GO NICOLE! (I am hoping I hit the big 50 tomorrow)! I need just over a 2 lb loss! I keep you informed!

    AWESOME JOB! Keep it up! It will all pay off in the end!

  2. You can do it!!!! Let me know when you hit it!

  3. Congrats babe. Reading your blog is really opening my eyes of all the possiblities I have in front of me. Keep pushing forward & no looking back! 112lbs will be here before you know it ;)
