A Few Different Things

So let’s see…

First here are two new weight loss pics
I just added to these pics to my ‘collection’. If you didn’t see my recent weigh in post I’m now down 54.4 pounds 🙂

So I still look at myself and see this FAT girl (you know I’m beginning to wonder if that perception of myself will ever change????) I’ve come really far and I’m so so proud of myself. I’m really trying to focus on NOT looking at the big number (total weight I have to lose) because that is so depressing and like my awesome friend Angie said this is a FOREVER journey anyways. It’s not just something that once I even reach my goal weight I’ll stop doing. I’ll be forever focusing/working on staying healthy and keeping the weight off!

But when I have moments like this and can’t stop seeing myself as the fat girl I pull out these photos to look at & I’m really reminded of how far I truly have come.

Before Pics:

I’ve kicked a** and attention whore or not I deserve to ‘brag’ about these accomplishments!

Second – Date Update

I had my second date with M on Saturday. We did dinner at one of my fave places to eat (which also coincidentally it’s hard to eat healthy at this place) La Senorita and then went and saw Date Night. I really like his personality – he’s goofy, fun loving, easy going and makes me laugh a lot.

We ended the evening with we definitely would like to see each other again we’re just now sure when our schedules will allow. It’s too hard to do anything during the week unless we meet for a quick lunch. Next weekend my best friend and her family is coming up for the long weekend so I’ll be with them all weekend.

So that’s that 🙂 How was your weekend? Anything exciting going on?

    You look GREAT. Your friend is right- it is a forever journey. It takes a long time for your mind to process what your eyes should actually see when you’ve felt like the fat girl for a long time. Thankfully, the scale tells us the truth, even if our brains fail to believe it 🙂
    Glad your 2nd date went well!!!

    I’m not sure the inner fat girl can ever be totally silenced. For now, I just tell her to shut the hell up cuz I’m lookin’ HOT!

  5. Oh Tishia, you look fantastic! So proud of you for sticking with it, in fact you have been a big inspiration to me the last few months because I have had some struggles. So thankful for you!

    Hope you will make time for your new man friend. He sounds nice.
