Well Hello!

First off, I would like to start with my current weight as of this morning.  I weigh in and every day but every Monday is the one that I document.  As of this morning I weigh 243.  Not what I want, but hey I'll take it because that now puts me at 55 pounds down! 

So what has happened since my last post?

Well, I got married, got a new job (still teaching but now teaching 1st grade at a different school), I have gone from a size 18/20 to a size 14/16!  That's so hard for me to fathom.  Like, the last time I posted I was wearing a very tight size 18.  Today, I'm in a great fitting  16 in jeans and in dresses I'm now wearing a 14/16.  So, while my weight is still very high, my body is still changing and guys, I am LOVING it!  I haven't been able to wear this size of clothing since I was in High School!  That's just crazy y'all.

As far as eating goes, I'm eating like shit but eating less of it if that helps salvage that any lol.  I know I could be losing a lot more so if you are going to preach it to me that I need to eat healthier and I wouldn't weigh so much, then go read someone else's blog because I do not want to hear/read it. 

So, I think I'm going to leave this post with pictures and a small story behind them.  I'll label them with each month and my approximate weight and what all was going on with me during that time!

I hope all of you beautiful, skinny, bitches are doing well!!
