I'm Shrinking.

I'm shrinking & not in a good way. I went & finished up the paperwork for the competition this afternoon complete with weigh-in, measurements, blood pressure, & measuring my height. I haven't been measured for height since sophomore year in high school (so we're talking about 17 years) & back then they told me I was 5'2", but I always thought it was a little off & I've always called myself 5'1" Well today they told me I was only 5' - are you kidding me?? I know short is short, but 5' is crazy. Then they pulled out the good ol' weight chart, the lady actually said in a shocked voice - it has you around 100lbs (97-128). I told her I realized that those charts are pretty low numbers & I was not going to flip out about it. I guess my BMI just went up again - crap.

Oh well, I couldn't sleep last night & got up in the middle of the night & was watching tv to try to lull back off & caught the Secret Lives of Women - Extreme Weight Loss. I was actually glad to be up at 3am to catch it. There was a girl named Jen that was only 5' that weighed 300lbs & after 2.5 years of diet & exercise now weighs 120lbs & wears a size 4. I read her bio & she said that #1 you have to be mentally committed. I think I'm half way there. I figure if she can do it, so can I & I don't have quite that much to lose. Oh yeah, she's now a PT at Gold's Gym. How inspiring - even if it was 3am - lol.

I'm all with the visualizing thing!! I still have about 15 pounds to go, but I've lost about 30 since January. I REALLY should have lost ALL by now, but you know, I cheat. *sigh* Anyway, every time I need to buy smaller clothes I get motivated again. You can do it! I believe in you! :)
