"Honeymoon Weight"

I peaked at the scale today and much to my suprise, I am down to 244.8 lbs! I've been wanting to get back down to where I was at during my honeymoon nearly two years ago, which was 245 lbs. Also known as my "honeymoon weight". I guess this could be considered my wedding weight, too... but I specifically remember coming home from my honeymoon and weighing in at 245 lbs. Considering that we went on a cruise for our honeymoon, I'm sure that I was at least a couple of pounds lighter at the time of my wedding. Either way, I've finally made it to that "honeymoon weight" and I am thrilled!

Total weight loss so far is 23.2 lbs. Getting really close to that 25 lb. mark!! Can't wait for that!

So far throughout my weight loss journey, I've been rewarding myself for every 5 pounds lost. My weight loss reward for when I reached 245 lbs. was suppose to be a book about nutrition. I wasn't 100% sure whether or not I wanted to buy this particular book, but decided to go to the book store to give it a closer look after work today. The book store didn't have the book in stock, and I didn't want to wait for it to be shipped. (I wanted a reward, today!) Lucky for me, one of my favorite clothing stores was just a block away. I found a cute top on clearance and decided to go for it! $13.00 later... here I am wearing my new reward!

I'm really starting to feel the results of my weight loss. My clothes are starting to fit so much better in general these days. 23 pounds later, I don't think that I should be as suprised as I am!

For tonight, I'll leave with you with a picture that my husband snapped right after taking the pictures of me in my new top. This is our cat, Isabella... and she's watching you ;)
