Update: my progress to date.....now with pics....
 
I have now reached 44 pounds lost since January 19th,2011. I needed shorts because the weather has been beautiful out,upper 80's all this week, and all of my shorts from last summer were a size 16. Went and grabbed a pair of 10's just for the hell of it, and lo and behold, they freaking fit!! Woo Hoo!! Then I decided to be more daring and try on some sleeveles medium shirts, and those fit as well, and looked good on my nice and toned arms. I am so freaking happy!! I met my april goal before the end of this month!! I can't wait til I am in single digits,but I will take this victory an do a happy dance!! I would never have dreamed I would look good in a sleeveless top,I was always so self concious of my arms, they were huge. They still have some more flab to come off, but not like they were last summer. I have a huge burst in my confidence now, like it was a no no to take my picture, now I want those taken!! I even went down to a 34, girls you know what I am talking about lol. Before I was a 38. Got to get this last 41 pounds off til I go to maintance phase, but man I feel freaking amazing!!

Congrats--feels good, doesn't it?! :D

There's nothing like success to keep one optimistic--keep your momentum going and you'll be at your maintenance goal in no time.

Regards,
Michael

Well done Pixie!
 
I can totally relate to how great it feels to suddenly realize you are a size you next thought you'de be. It is an out of body experience. "Hey wait a minute... is that really me????" "Yup - that's me alright!!!!"

Keep it up! Nothing breeds success like success!

Terrific! I can imagine you with a big smile and dancing around in the dressing room.
Oh, how good that feel! I used to embarass about my belly. In severals sperate occasion, people ask if I was pregnant. "Uh, how dare you ask that", I thought. But now, I wear short and tank top, walk tall and confident b/c I don't have a "pregnant" belly.
Wonderfull, Keep it up. You will lose the rest of it as you plan.

You can definitely see the difference in your face, neck, and arms in the shots you've given. You look great! :D (And I love your bunny-ears headband!)

You look great! Thanks for posting! Congratulations on all the hard work in such a short time.

pixiedust7976 04-29-2011 07:22 AM

Thank you all for the words of encouragement!! But I met my goal of halfway there!! I got my mini goals in place and ready to go. I am struggling to get into the 150's but everytime I went to go from 190 to 180 to 170 it took a bit more, so I just push harder, and I know that I will get into the 150's soon, because " I think I can, I think I can!'

pixiedust7976 04-30-2011 10:00 PM

As of April 30th, 2011 I weigh 159.8. My mini goal was 159 but I will take the fact that no longer in the 60's. Next mini goal, to hit 155 to 153 by May 14th, 2011. Woot Woot Woot. Feeling fit and fabulous!

gallusgal 05-01-2011 06:42 PM

Pixie, you look fabulous, well done!

almeeker 05-01-2011 08:53 PM

You look fan-freakin'-tastic!!! Thanks for posting the pics.

cjohnson728 05-01-2011 10:55 PM

Pixie, you look great! BIG difference!

And...OMG! You are in O.C. in that picture? Where are you from? I grew up going there every summer, plus senior week :D. Went back last summer with my family, also; it doesn't change much.

lastri 05-02-2011 02:18 AM

Fantastic job Pixie. You go girl!

pixiedust7976 05-09-2011 03:41 AM

That was me in O.C. when me and my sisters went to visit my Grandmother and Grandfather where they lived in Ocean Pines. I am from and still live in Reisterstown, MD. Ocean City is a fun place to hang out...

cjohnson728 05-09-2011 01:56 PM

Very cool. I'm from Catonsville, born and raised there, but we moved to GA for my internship in '94 and ended up staying.

The internet makes for such a small world :).

pixiedust7976 05-09-2011 07:44 PM

Small world lol....

Here is another wonderful update:
My wedding rings officially want to fall off of my fingers! I have to be real careful holding my hand down, or they may slip off my finger. I decided to go to the jewelery store and see what they would want to size the rings. I was just going to do a ring guard, but I had heard they scratch the rings. I got my quote as to what it would cost and the woman resized me there so I knew how many sizes it was coming down. I am (insert dramatic music here) a size 6!!! In January when I started, I wore a 9 ring. This is an amazing accomplishment. I can't have them resized until the 17th of this month, so I might even drop down to a 5.5 by the 17th. At least hoping because I don't want them resized more than once because I don't know what it would do to the rings.
I feel AMAZING!!!
