Thirty Pounds

I have officially hit 235 pounds, which is 30 pounds from when I started at the first of the year.  I am excited, but also nervous.  This is where it usually ends.  I cannot let that happen this time.  I have been doing Wii Fit and it measures your bmi, it also tells you what your ideal weight should be for your height.  It said that my ideal weight is 119 pounds.  So I am pretty much twice the weight I should be.   That was sitting pretty heavy on my brain and then I saw this……

My God, what have I done to my body?  Look at all of the fat in the internal organs! 
I just cannot let this be acceptable any more.
The last time I had an appropriate amount of body fat I was around six or seven years old.  I wonder if I can take it that far.  My goal has been to get down to 175, that is what I weighed in high school.  Could it be possible to get below that?  This thought blows my mind.  But if I continue keeping the course as I have been, it could be possible to keep on past 175.  I wonder if I did, would I be able to maintain it?  Who knows, only time will tell.

The other day I was handed a stack of mail from the postman and it was incredibly heavy.  I decided to weigh it just for fun, 12 pounds.  I was stunned that the weight was so low, how have I carried all of this excess for so long?  

So far I have lost 30 pounds. T-H-I-R-T-Y, that is just unreal.

This is 30 pounds of fresh summer peaches
This man has one rockin' hat and a tray holding 30 pounds of delicious bacon

This table is doing the best it can to hold 30 pounds of blue berries

This old brass bell weighs a ring-y ding-y 30 pounds

Each of these big cheese wheels weighs 30 pounds
 Until next time.....
