Milestone: - 50lbs

I did it! It took a lot longer than expected but that one single pound was taking forever to let go of me but have you seen what 1 pound of butter looks like? That's a big lump.

We moved house and I didn't weigh in for just over a month. I upped my calories for a week and then bumped them back down with hopes of giving my metabolism a boot in the right direction. I tried to go over my calories a little each day to ensure I was always getting enough instead of possibly putting my body into starvation/clingy mode. I think going over a little is better than being under a little. 

The proof? Instead of losing just that one pound I lost 4.4 putting me under my 176 lb goal and at a loss of a full 53 lbs.

Here's what it looks like to lose 53 lbs!

First, the face:

The bod:
226 lbs to 173 lbs:

you're going to want to click on the picture to make it bigger. Wow.
Here I am with my friend Rachel in 2010 a month before Stuart and I started losing weight; the last time I saw her in person before this week... I don't have much more to say than that but I do have a high-5 for myself! Yeeehaw!
