I'm normal baby! AND..I can't believe I'm posting this picture...

I'm finally at a normal BMI, for the first time in my teenage-adult life! I weigh less now than I did in jr high-high school!

Today is my 25th birthday and even though I didn't reach my goal, I'm proud of how far I've come so far.

Weighed in at 138 lbs this morning! I started off at 183..45 lbs gone so far!

I'm still keeping my goal of 125 for now and will keep going after this weekend is over, I'm going to indulge a bit for my bday first!

I woke up to find a new pair of jeans on the kitchen table from my sweet husband. I had to go exchange them, just for a slightly different color and I snapped a couple pictures in my new pants since I had my camera with me.

(hey cutie in the background!)

I've been walking around in baggy capris the last few weeks so it was high time I got some new jeans! No more saggy bottom for me! Yay! :)

And I can't believe I am posting this comparison picture, but I am, I saw this picture of me today and thought 'hey, I'm not totally disgusted with my arms anymore!'

I've had a few friends say they can't remember me being a size 18, or xl-xxl. well...let me remind you what that looks like...eek.

Here's me today...

And here's me at the end of March, right before I started competing in Season 4 at Win, Lose, or Blog.

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I laugh at my husband, but I about cried when I saw this picture of me at Sea World! was bad...bad. bad. bad.

My arms still need some work, but they have come along way!

13 lbs to go! My new goal date for that is December 8th! I better get there before then :)
