So, I started my Bikini challenge a week early, just because I didn't want to wait. If I waited, I knew that I would be THAT much more behind. I would eat everything in sight, like I always do. It has officially been two weeks. I haven't cheated once. Over the weekend we went to a Food and Wine Truck festival with the family. There were 12 trucks that you could sample from. I sampled from 3. The old me would have been down with all 12 and much more. The new me saw a greasy slice of pizza and didn't even want it. Who is this person?? I have NEVER not wanted a slice of pizza. Not even when eating healthy before. Like I have said, this time is just different. I have so many things going for me. I think this blog is my biggest support. It's what keeps me most excited. I hit a milestone and I can't wait to tell all of you. The other day I was at my MIL's house, we were discussing weightloss and I showed her where I tend to lose weight first. All of my weight is in my belly. I hate it, it hangs so low, it's just terrible. But she had mentioned that I was just going to have to have surgery to fix that. Then it clicked. A few months ago, before I gained the 20-30 lbs, I was feeling extremely down on myself. My stomach was already showing signs of loose skin. It was bad. I am 22 years old. I am not supposed to have loose skin! I finally got fed up with it and went to a doctor. Let me tell you, most uncomfortable appointment of my life even more uncomfortable than the womanly doctor. I was 250 at the time I saw him. He told me that I needed to lose 50 lbs and he would do the surgery. He showed me the amount of skin that he would cut off. It was insane. After the surgery, he told me my weight would be about 170-180. That is my ultimate goal. That is where I feel I need to be. I have set little goals. Each goal is 10 lbs. My big goal is 65. And my ultimate goal is 170-180 with the surgery. Some people my not agree. And that's okay. But coming from 317 lbs, I'm not going to lose all of my skin with working out. People carry their weight differently. It just so happens that I carry my weight STRICTLY in my stomach. My legs are not big, my arms really aren't big, I have like the worlds tinniest butt, it's really more like a crack. So that's the plan for me. And I won't stop until I reach my goal. The more I think about it, the more excited I get.
We went to Target last night, I was curious to see what the Bikini looked like on me, so I made poor Dayton take picture of me.
There isn't THAT much of a difference. I can see little bits here and there. My belly doesn't hang AS low. My under boob is smaller. And my back fat isn't as back fatty. and I look tanner. :) I'm proud for it only being two weeks. I know that I said that I would post every thirty days, but I've already posted pictures of myself in a bikini once. So.... I mean, I can do it again if I want to.

I would like to have this done in a certain time period. I just don't want to be let down. So, I am just going to keep doing what I am doing. :)
And on that note, I must bid you adieu.
