I've Re-Reached the 50 lbs loss Mark!!

Since I've been very vigilant these last couple of weeks I decided to do a mid-week weigh in. Low and behold what I saw!

I've re-reached the 50 lbs loss mark! I did it! The last time I lost 50 lbs was in May of 2011. From there I wasn't able to keep it off and eventually fluctuated between 215-219 lbs. I'm SO GLAD I was finally able to re-reach this milestone.

Profile pics from this morning:

I looked back at my old entry and I looked at my measurements. Here they are again:

I'm thrilled! It was a lot of hard work and I still have to keep this weight off by Saturday, my birthday. But it happened and I must celebrate.... by eating ice cream! LOL just kidding. I think I'll go for a new hike tonight after work. 
Getting there! Woo!

A HUGE THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS BEEN SUPPORTING ME! I really appreciate it and I know I would have had a horrible time of it if you weren't there helping me out.

Now to work!

I lost the first 50 but have gained some back but soon will work on getting rid of that and some more.
Take care and God Bless!!
