Weight Loss

I would say I've battled weight all my life. I've never been VERY over-weight until now. I'm at a number that is just no OK!  I'm only 5'3 so I've always used that as an excuse that my number on the scale will be higher. I do feel like there is some truth to that though. I honestly don't feel like I weigh what the scale says I do. I don't know if that's because of where I carry the weight, or not. Most of my weight is in the mid-section.

In 2005, right when I met my husband I feel like I looked good! I was a size 11/12, not tiny.  But, I  was thin!
This is me, those jeans are American Eagle, size 12. I wasn't bone skinny, but I was thin, I felt good, and I was happy! Don't mind the goofy pose, I was 22 and dumb! haha

I think I was about a size 8 my freshman year in high school, but by graduation I was a 13/14. I stayed the same size till right when I met my hubs in 2005, when I had just dropped a few pounds and was an 11/12...like the pic above.
This was obviously Halloween. My hubs and I had been dating a little over a month! I remember these clothes perfectly, lol. The pants were a size 13, the top was a size large. Again, not small by any means...but I think I look pretty darn good! It must be the way I'm built or something....that my sizes, and numbers on the scale are never "small" even when I'm "thin". I see pics of people and they say how much they weigh, and they weigh a ton less, than me...but in my head I think they look bigger than me?? Maybe just wishful thinking. Anyway, this is my goal. I want to look like that again!! It will take 50-60 pounds. I'm down 15, but have a long way to go! Follow me through my journey!
