Weight Loss Update: 150 pounds gone

A photo by David from a recent trip to Big Spring Park.

Today's weigh-in at TOPS had some milestones.  I reached 20 pounds lost in 2014 and a grand total of 151 pounds lost since January 8, 2013.  Every weight loss milestone is personally rewarding to reach, especially now since weight loss is becoming slower and more difficult now that I am getting closer to my goal weight. 

I do have a disadvantage of weight loss to report and this disadvantage has caused me a bit of an identity crisis.  As I am becoming closer in size to my daughters, laundry is becoming harder to sort and return to the proper owner.  Therefore, I spent some time this weekend labeling my clothes with a laundry pen.  As I started labeling, I realized that most initials in our laundry system were used.  Matt, Luke and I had already had a sock mix up as the kids thought L meant Leatta and M meant Mom...so I was a bit clueless on what to label my clothes so I decided to go with "MOM".  It is short and unclaimed.  However, about the time, that I started writing "MOM" on all my unmentionables, I realized....I may be taking this "MOM" role a bit to seriously!  Leatta would have been too long to write, but having "MOM" on all my undies is killing my secret self-image...well, not such a secret now!  Gotta love blog "secrets". LOL!

My next milestone will be to be half the woman that I was in January 2013...and that is only 10 pounds away!


  1. Leatta, you can always look at it from another point of view..... from another angle it says WOW. Just think.... WOW!! I am a beautiful woman achieving my goal and dream. :-) Beverly Wilkerson, TOPS MO 1301.

    1. Love it! I may start writing WOW and tell the kids that it is MOM! ;)
