I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday

Today, I am estatic to share with you some wonderful news. It has been eight long months of hard work and discipline but I am pleased to report that I, Souzapalooza, have lost:


(I’m lying, I’ve lost 31.5, but 30 is nice & round… like I USE to be!)

The thing is, when you are carrying extra weight on your body, you don’t always realize it. Your pants might be a little tighter and you may get winded a little easier. I didn’t realize what 30 lbs really felt like on my body. Do you know what 30 lbs feels like? I decided to provide some visual representations:

30 Packages of Butter = 30 lbs
10 Bags of Onions = 30 lbs
6 Bags of Potatoes = 30 lbs
This is 10 lbs of Flour, 3 of these = 30lbs
This is 30 lbs of Rice!
All this adds up to 32 lbs of Butterball! Souzapalooza - Butterball No More!

It has been a long battle, and I still have a ways to go. As one of my fellow bloggers, Retroactiv says, “Weight loss is a journey, not a destination” and I’m going to keep moving along on this path. Thank you to everyone who has been helping me and cheering me on along the way!

Take care of your body.  It’s the only place you have to live.  ~Jim Rohn
