Fat Butt Friday: I Did It!!!!

What did I do?  I made my first weight loss goal this week!!  I have officially lost 20 pounds since Ben left 6 weeks ago -- and the best thing? I zoomed right past that mark and landed at a 22 pound loss this morning!  AND I am no longer in the 200's!!!!  I am officially past that!!  I can't begin to explain how good it feels to reap the rewards of some seriously hard work.  Here are some before and after pictures:

This is me at my biggest (279):

This is me after I had my 3rd baby (245):

This is me at 220 (Before 6 weeks ago):

This is me the other day at 200 (I will post the next shot when I reach 190):

Now, I am not going to sit back and relax.  I just reached my first goal.  I have two weeks until Ben gets home and I would LOVE to get a few more pounds off and get far away from the big two-zero-zero and leave it behind for good.  My next goal is to get to my pre-Jake weight of 190.  That's just 8 pounds.  THEN my final and last goal is lose 35 more pounds to reach my goal weight of 155.  Those last pounds are going to be tough, I know that.  But I also know that I have made it this far, and I am not stopping until I get there!


PS -- I have gotten a lot of comments and emails asking me what I am doing.  I will write a post all about it and post it tomorrow.  So check back!!

That's awesome, Cat! I've been getting frustrated with the weight sticking to me like glue. Your posts really do keep me motivated. Even if the weight isn't coming off very fast for me, I do feel better, so I'll keep going. :o)

You're very inspiring!

Congratulations, Cat! That is incredible. What an inspiration you are! You look fantastic, and looking at your 200 pictures, I would never guess you at that weight. You look much smaller. I'm so stinkin happy for you. And your face is just glowing!

My Summer weight loss goal is going to have to sit on the back burner, because I'm pregnant again! But, you can bet that I'll be working super hard after this baby comes, and I'll be looking to you for encouragement. :)

You look so good! Way to go! And I love your new blog header.

You look fantastic!!!!!!!!! If I could be 10lbs thinner, I would be what I weighed just after my first son was born. So, I am working on it slowly! I support you 110%!!!!

Hey now, there's no shame in having a fat butt... in fact, some people would actually like to know how to get a bigger butt. Myself included... ;)
