Milestone Morning

I like to do my weigh-in after I get back from walking. At that point in the day, I haven't eaten much yet and I typically sweat off anywhere from a half-pound to a pound while I'm out. So it's my best bet for catching myself at the lowest number of the day.

Having said that...when I weighed this morning, I had hit the 15 POUNDS DOWN mark!

Okay, I have to put this in perspective. This is still 25 pounds from goal. It's still almost 40 pounds heavier than I was when I gave birth to my daughter, and basically 60 pounds more than I weighed when I got married. Shoot, I still have to lose another 3 pounds just to be at the point where I was when I left my hospital job 2 1/2 years ago. (Yeah, I had put on almost 20 pounds just in the last two-years-and-a-bit.)

But 15 POUNDS!!!! That's two newborn babies!

There aren't a lot of pictures of me from the spring and early summer. Mostly I would be the one taking pictures, and when I was in one, I got really good at standing behind people or standing in such a way that you couldn't tell how heavy I really was getting. But I did find one. (Well, I found a few, but I'll only post one.)

This morning, however, I had taken the camera with me anyhow - partly to take pictures of various points on "my" trail (which I'll share in a later blog) and partly to finally get a picture of Sandi. So, as it happens, we got a picture on this Milestone Morning.

I'll call these Before and So Far...because I'm nowhere near "After" yet.
