Weight Watchers update

It's been awhile since I talked about my journey so let's visit that topic today!
It's my weigh in day! Every Tuesday! I am slowly approaching my year anniversary (9-28) and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on where I am, where I came from, and where I am going...
I will not share my starting weight but I will share my losses with you: I have officially lost 66 pounds. And I have lost the following in inches:
Waist: 9"
Hips: 7.5"
Bust: 8"
Arms: 2"
Dress Size: 8
Thighs: 5"

So to put this into perspective let's add up all those inches lost from my whole body:
TOTAL: 31.5" gone from my body?! And down 8 sizes! WOW? I'm just finding this all out at this very moment so you are living my excitement with me!!!! That's more than 2 foot of my body gone?! I know it doesn't really work that way but in my head it helps for me 'see' it like that! Wowsers! It's no wonder when I walked into that school today people were talking. I lost count of how many people came up to me today to talk to me and say how amazing I looked. And for those of you who really KNOW ME, I HATE THAT attention. HATE IT. I just wanted to crawl into a hole. But then I got home and did my measurements and I GET IT! I see it! I can understand why they are all commenting. WOW! I still hate attention on me but THANKS! I DID THIS!! I am STILL DOING THIS!!! I'm just over my half way point. I kinda took the summer off from all the craziness of counting points to the right #. I did it in my head but not on paper. I still lost 10 lbs over the summer but it could have been better. But I proved to myself that I CAN MAINTAIN!!! I can do this! I WILL CONTINUE THIS JOURNEY!
So darn proud of myself!! Thanks for letting me rant.
