50lbs down!!

So it's been 4 months (well 4 months tomorrow) since my surgery.. and I hit the 50lb mark today! My BMI went from 46 down to 38. So exciting! I don't know what else to say about my journey, but everything is going well, the diet is getting easier. No problems over here!

Here's a pic of me in my fat pants today, these are the pair I was wearing before surgery.

Fat Pants! These are my size 22's, I'm size 18 now.
So is everyone watching American Idol??! Since you know I love it haha. I went to two tapings recently. So much fun! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Stefano vote for him ;). Also I actually ran into Scotty and Lauren when I was having dinner at the Grove! Such nice kids :)

Well that's all for now! Just working towards my Idol goal, maybe I can hit it!! The weight loss has been pretty steady this week. hmm! Wish me luck!

30 Day Shred.

is evil! hahaha. I decided to download it and let Jillian Michaels kick my ass. I hurt everywhere! It's only 20 minutes, but it is a really intense workout! I feel like I do more in those 20 minutes than I ever did at the gym. It's a little hard for me to do these things, lots of impact (jumping jacks, jump rope) which are pretty painful when you are overweight haha. But as she says, I have 400 pound people doing jumping jacks no excuses! It's like 2 minutes of cardio, 3 minutes of strength training, and 1 minute of abs rotated.

If you have Time Warner Cable, you can watch it On Demand for free (part 1 only) in the "Health & Fitness" section, under Exercise TV. (They also have the Leslie Sansone walking ones I mentioned earlier)

I didn't lose any weight in a week, so I decided to kick my ass a little bit. Seems to be helping so far :) I'm down a pound today. I'm officially the weight I was in 9th grade haha... I had joined Lindora, not sure why I remember the exact weight from that day. I also remember that I was wearing my 98ยบ t-shirt to the meeting... random! I think I ended up losing about 40lbs on Lindora before I gave up on it.

Next mini goal is the weight on my drivers license! hahah!! 12 more pounds for that. Still crossing my fingers for my Idol goal.. I don't think I'll make it, but it's possible I'll lose about 20 more. Which is still good :). I think realistically a goal would be I would like to be wearing a size 16 pants by then.

Speaking of Idol, I got to go to a taping this week! It was fun. We were way up in the balcony above the stage and couldn't see anything though..lame! But it was way cool when James Durbin came up there to start his performance. Is anyone else watching? Have a favorite? I like Stefano.. I also like Scotty and James.

That's all for now!
