Ita finally stoppped raining here in Maine!!!!!! THANK YOU! :).
Red Gate, I was right where you are now, 239 or 240 awhile ago. I felt like a slug. No energy, no drive, disappointed in myself. The day I had to ask the guy in the excavator to lower his bucket into the trench so I could get out was the day that I vowed to lose weight. I was sooooooooooo embarassed. I no longer work construction, I work on a dairy farm so the work is still just as hard and we are so busy alllllll the time, we just don't stop until everythings done, my first 4 hours are constant and I move ALL the time untill I milk all the cows. I run em up, I run em in, I set the parlor up and do the milking. I managed to convince the owner I do it better alone and he said no problem and gets to sleeo in Monday through Friday, he has no complaints, lol.So congratulations to you for your weight loss and keep it going!
With alot of work and taking it VERY slow I am losing. Same thing with you tohugh, 100lbs looked impossible, but 10 here and 10 there was so much easier to see. I am now 179 pounds, that is a loss of 66 pounds! So that 100 pound mark is finally visible to me. My goal right now is 169.5, that will get me out of the 170's,lol. I pulled a size 10 levis jeans on today , they are a little more snug than I like but when I hit the 169 mark im guessing that my new jeans will fit perfectly.
So, to anyone in here that loves the way the will feel and look when they lose a few here and there I say go for it, ride your horse, groom your horse love him or her and don't put your lif eon hold until you lose the weight. That's what I kept doing and the years kinda slipped by,im 45 and don't want to wait anymore.
Thank ou for the great thread, I will definitely come back. Whens the weekly weigh in I read about awhile back.
5'5.5" (lol gotta get the half in)
Have a sweet day everyone!!!!!!!
