It's amazing what stress can do. Last week I started a new job. Between stressing about learning to do something totally and completely new and trying to figure out how to make my last unemployment check stretch until I get my first "employment" check, my brain and I guess my body were on overload. I actually managed to lose over 8 lbs last week. Craziness!!! With this loss, I now weigh 261 lbs. Just one little lb away from having lost a 1/3 of my original body weight.
A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to my friend Kristin about how much weight I'd lost. At the time I was right around 119 down. I jokingly told her, "I've almost lost you" and an idea was formed, a twist on the then and now pic. I decided we needed to take pictures when my loss equaled her weight. With the crazy stressing last week, I kinda shot past the mark and we had to call in a stunt dog, ie. Beuno (thanks Deb).
Holding them up for the few minutes it took to take pictures was a bit of a strain (no offense Kristin but Bueno just pushed it over the top). It's hard to imagine that I used to walk around everyday carrying that much weight.
