What resulted in my determination was a loss of 12 pounds in two weeks, and it didn't even feel like I was killing myself to do it. I was watching what I ate, but not to a super-strict regimented degree, and I was exercising moderately. I was more consistent with keeping track of my calorie intake and burn each day with MyFitnessPal (where my name is FitnessyKate if you would like to be friends), and that always keeps me on track really well.
I'm still waiting to hear how much money I won from the $63,000 diet bet pot, but as soon as I have the credits, I will be putting another $25 or so into a new bet and starting all over again. What great motivation to lose 4% of my body weight each month! At that rate plus a few pounds more, I will be under 200 pounds in two months. I have been waiting for that moment for a long time, and it is gonna be a BIG deal. The last time I was under 200 pounds was 14 years ago. 14 YEARS!!! I feel like I should throw a party when that moment comes. Or have a ceremony or something. I could take 130 pounds of something to symbolize all the weight I will have lost up to that point and carry it to a fire and toss it in and watch it burn as a I do a crazy dance around the flames. Someone would definitely need to film that and we could make it into a documentary. Maybe it will become the new thing to do at parties for giant amounts of weight lost. Or in the loony bin, where I will no doubt end up if anyone witnesses these crazy antics. What? I can't stop the madness. It's an integral part of who I am. And I like me.
So on that note, it's time for some pictures. I have put together some before and after pictures, also known as "Who Wore It Better: Weight Loss Edition".
First off, we have my diet bet weigh-in and weigh-out pictures.
After seeing the difference in those pictures, I realized that I could probably see a difference in the dress I wore on Easter:
