See my photo gallery! Holy Moly!
Tonight I was feeling different. I don't know how else to describe it. I randomly wanted to try on some clothes that I've had for awhile. In particular the top that I wore to the hospital the morning of my surgery. I was in total shock. It looked amazing! (If I do say so myself!) So I got mum (her mouth was open in shock) to take a photo. She looked at it, looked at me, and said "now you are going to like this one". Usually I end up taking 4 or 5 photos before I find one that I think is half decent to put on blog. I grabbed the camera and looked. "Wow" was all I could say. I couldn't and still can't- believe it is me! I got so emotional, it hit me hard. I couldn't stop crying! Then Mum started crying- which wasn't good because she was all made up for a party! Lol. But it just really hit me. I don't think until tonight I have fully felt the impact of what has happened to me over the last 4 month physically. Yes, mentally I have changed, but I was sort of saying "yeah I've lost 18.5 kilos" proud, but not aware. I now am totally aware!!!
This has definately made me more motivated. I can TOTALLY get to my goal of under 100 for my birthday. And definately can get to the goal of under 85 for Christmas!
I want to say a big thankyou to everyone who has supported my on my journey so far. Big big thanks and hugs especially to Kristie, Sami (go read her blog!) and Myf. Without you three I'd be lost.
Tomorrow I will write up my weekly goals. I am a little unsure as to what they will be. Might have a goal of getting under 100 by next Sunday- not impossible as Bridgys getting a big fill monday!!!
I've got a huge smile on my face, and a huge smile in my heart. This weight loss thing is actually achievable. I CAN DO IT. I CAN GET TO MY GOAL.

I am so damn proud of you. I love that you can see such a difference now. See what all your hard work has done for you so far?

Oh, and seriously - there is no way I would be getting through the blah moments without you. You are such a fantastic support - in good and bad.
