As many of you know, I have been losing weight since January 2007. I was morbidly obese (5′ 11″, 350 pounds) and I needed to lose lots of weight. My first goal was to be able to lose enough weight to be able to fit on the roller coasters at Silver Dollar City when my family went on vacation in June. I achieved that goal and was able to ride every ride that I wanted. The girls had a blast riding with their Dad.
Next, I set my goal at losing 100 lbs. That was the next logical step in my weight loss. Finally, after 10 months, I broke through that wall! As of my official weigh-in last night, I have lost a total of 104.2 pounds! I was really stressing this week prior to the weigh-in. I knew I was close but was afraid I would miss it. I blew right past it!
So, what is my next goal? I’m currently at 244.8 lbs. so my next goal will be to get down to 200 pounds. I haven’t been there since I was in the Marine Corps! I would eventually like to be able to fit into my Marine Corps dress blue uniform again.
