Finally 40!!!

I finally made it to -40 lbs!!!  I am so excited b/c it seemed like I just kept bouncing back and forth the same couple of pounds.  My goal is to shed the next 25 by my bandiversary on June 30th.  Nothing too extreme, just an average of 3 lbs a month...seems kind of low huh?  Well I am trying to be realistic.  I have lost a total of 40 lbs. BUT on 15 of them have been since surgery.  My dr. keeps reminding me "it's not a's a marathon."  He's right and for once in my life, I am actually content to lose it slowly.

I am getting excited for my 60 mile breast cancer walk in November.  We have one more training walk to go.....we are going to do 20 miles on Nov. 6th!  So far our longest walk has been 17 miles in about 5.5 hours--including potty breaks & eating.  Hopefully, I will be good to go for the whole 60....actually, I's my feet that I am worried about.

Hope all is well in your world!


  1. Good for you....take very good care of those feet....they need to last ;-)

  2. Hey put me in the slow loser camp, but as long as it's coming off then I'm not complaining. Good luck on your Breast Cancer, that sounds like a lot of work but also a lot of fun!

  3. That's awesome! The first 40 are the best, aren't they?

    Also, I would love to do a breast cancer walk... I wonder if there are any in my area? :) I need to find out!

  4. 40 pounds lost is wonderful.
    And wow, a 60 mile walk; I can't even imagine that.
