16 Weeks...49 Pounds (With Pictures!)

This morning I woke up feeling good....really good. I had to pick out a smaller comparison outfit because the other is so big (VERY exciting). Now, I do look a little lumpier than normal and look like I have more rolls, but that is because I have a regular bra on (rather than a sports bra) and again, my pants are a size smaller, but I don't care. I saw such a crazy difference myself just getting dressed so, of course, I was excited with the pictures. I am almost at my halfway mark and I was only 4 lbs away from my 10% goal, so I am pleased. I will be completely honest, I was shocked by the number on the scale this week. I know I am eating less, but we went to Texas de Brazil for my son's birthday and I figured the lack of water and excess amount of salt from there would still be lingering in my system. I am officially down 49 lbs since the start of my journey. That averages to a little over 3 lbs a week which is right on track. Lets hope that next month shows a much bigger drop since I can go back to the gym now! 6 weeks away is too long when you hav over 100 lbs to lose! Thanks for reading, and here are my 16 week pictures (12 weeks below in light gray)
