First Milestone

Well, I have hit my first milestone. I weighed myself Saturday morning and have dropped 20 pounds! Yay! I have to say I was a little surprised when the scale said 178. My self-image has been waning the last week or so (especially after hanging out at Dave and Ivonne's on Friday night, with all the skinny-minnies in their bikinis). So, it was especially nice to see the scale showing a 20 pound loss. It couldn't come at a better time. Especially since Chris and I went out Sat. night for our 9th anniversary--The Blue Man Group, and then dinner.

Hopefully, Ivonne's scale (the official doctor scale) will show the same results when I go in for my checkup on Wednesday. I took this pic yesterday, and have to say that I don't see much of a difference between this one and the one on the 18th (below), and I think I look better on the 18th. But, that could be because it's outside and I have my hair done, not wearing a baseball cap. The next picture will NOT be taken in the boy's messy room!

I have 5 more days of Adipex left. Since it seems to be working, hopefully Ivonne will renew my prescription. We'll know tomorrow.

178 today,
