here's to fifty...

...pounds lost. thanks to weight watchers, an incredibly supportive family (most especially jayson and joy), and a daughter who keeps me active.

i can't tell you how much better i feel.

and i still eat ice cream. several times a week.

truthfully, i never thought i'd make it. i cried one week on the scale, i just couldn't believe it. i always thought i'd be overweight--it was my genes, destiny, trial...whatever. i've learned that's bologna. if you want it, you can achieve it.

here's to healthy living!

Heidi, I'm so happy for you!!!!!!!!!!

How about a full-body shot for us to admire? A hot one, please ... (not that you have any other kind.)

I am SOOOO proud of you, Heidi!! Not just for the weight lost, but also for the sheer willpower and determination that you mustered up to do this. I mean, I'm a morning person, and getting up at 5 or 5:30 is hard for ME. And just knowing that you, a night-owl by nature, would get up at that time day after day to exercise is absolutely amazing. Empowering. Okay, so I'm so proud of you that I even called my mom and told her. She was really, really impressed, too. I was so excited for you, I just had to share your good news with someone! :) Congrats!

Hey Heidi. Congratulations on the incredible weight loss. That is amazing and soon you get to go show it off in Hawaii. I wish I was going back. Oh course I remember those peacocks. They really scared me at first. We actually saw some peacocks on our trip (at Waimea gardens I think), and I thought about those ones at your house.

Way to go Heidi!! That is so awesome and you look incredible! I am truly inspired by you and your hard work/motivation/positive attitude! You rock!!

Elisa said...

Congratulations babe!! What an accomplishment!! I have only lost 30 lbs. and am starting to get discouraged and feeling like I will always be overweight (like you said), but hearing that you made it that far really makes me believe that it is possible! Way to go! And how wonderful to have a friend to support you like that!

But seriously - I NEED to see a picture!!

That's awesome, Heidi! My mom and Chelsey said that they saw you the other day and that you had wasted away to nothing. My mom even said, "Her legs were this big around" as she made a small circle with her hands. Too funny. We are so proud and happy for you!
