I have lost 21 pounds so far, and according to this chart: I should weigh between 102-123 pounds... I started at 163, and am now at 142.

Since I have teeny bird bones I should be on the lower end of the weight range... My goal is 110 pounds, so I have 32 pounds left to go.

I am at kind of a plateau, I haven't lost any weight in the past few weeks, so I need to kick it up a notch. I haven't been getting as much exercise as I would like, so I am making an effort to go on the treadmill every night after work. I did skip walking during my lunch break for a week or so, because it's just so flippin' hot outside I get all sweaty and gross. I have devised a way to walk around and kind of circle the building so I can pop inside and do an interior lap, just long enough to cool off in the AC.

I also joined a weight loss group here: There are 10 of us trying to lose weight, and whoever loses the most (as a percentage of beginning body weight) by the end of July wins. We..each put in $20, so the prize will be $200, awarded at a beach party. I am not really expecting to win, but I'm hoping the experience of sharing with a group will renew my motivation.

I have also gone down two clothing sizes, and (ugh) one bra size. I remember how much I used to love to shop back when I was a size 3, I am really looking forward to being able to buy cute clothes again (instead of baggy fat-girl monstrosities).

The good news is my C-cup boobs are every bit as perky as my D-cup boobs were. I was a B-cup back in the olden days when I did weigh 110, I am hoping no droopage will occur when I get there again.
