75lbs - Before & After

Last night was EPIC!  Dave's platoon had an all expenses paid cruise on an Argosy boat in downtown Seattle.  I got to buy some new clothes for the event and I was SO EXCITED to be able to fit into super cuteness from Torrid in a smaller size than before!! Of course.... TONS of pictures were taken, but none of just me.  So here's one with everyone cropped out in a before & after!

So, it's been a minute since I've written on Skinny Betsy... but, I've been a little preoccupied!  Now that things have settled down a bit,  I have more time to get back to writing.

First things first... I hit 75 POUNDS lost today!!  I stepped on the scale this morning and I was like WOO HOOOOO I can't believe it! I kept saying outloud to myself and my husband, "I lost 75lbs! I lost 75lbs! I lost 75lbs!"  It's like I had to say it to myself over and over before I really believed it.  I am becoming a different person, inside and out and sometimes... it's just hard to believe!

Here's a pic from last week... not quite 75lbs yet, but close!

Dave and I are going to start walking together... which I'm really looking forward to! And... we're getting a stationary bike from a family friend.  So I'm really looking forward to riding that too!  I have a goal of taking the hike down to the bottom of Snoqualmie Falls before we move to Germany.  I'm hoping to do it soon!!
