Side note...I have updated "My Story" above.  I thought it would be a good way to give new readers an idea of who I was/am/and am still becoming along this journey.  Feel free to read it, it puts the main parts of my story all in one place.

I have officially hit the 80 pounds lost mark!
To celebrate,
let's talk a little bit about how heavy 80 pounds really is...

I lost 267 iPhones

I lost the equivalent of 10.5 average newborn babies.
(The average newborn weighs in at 7.5 pounds)

I lost 53 loaves of bread.

I lost 160 pairs of my running shoes (or 320 individual shoes).

I lost a total of 540 DVDs and their cases.

Eighty pounds is 80 pounds!
And I tried really hard to pick up the large sacks of flour equivalent to 80 pounds to get a picture representation.
I couldn't do it.
I got to 40 pounds and almost dropped the sacks in Costco.

I am amazed that I used to walk around EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. with all that added extra weight!
It is absolutely powerful to look back and FEEL how heavy that number really is!
