Weight loss update and goals

Well I just had my 6 week check-up yesterday and am clear to go back to all normal exercises! YAY! My goal is to loose 100 pounds, putting me back around 126 or so. If I can make it to 145 I think that would be pretty awesome but my BIG goal is 125, or as close to that as possible. When my doctor walked in she looked at me and said "Wow! You look great! How much weight have you lost?" Well, I knew I had lost all of the weight I put on from the baby already but was not ready for what she was about to tell me. I started my pregnancy at 226, so I am going with that as my start weight, she then goes "Holy cow! You have already lost 10 pounds!" OMG! WHAT?!? YES!!!! YEAH!! WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! lol You all have NO idea how excited I am about this! I was stuck at or right around 225 for nearly 2 YEARS!!! So to have lost 10 pounds already without really doing much is, well it is AWESOME!! So now that I am clear to exercise I can not wait to see what I can do! So now I have 90 pounds to go and while that is still a big number it just makes me feel better to know it is now less than 100! lol I go back to my angel of a doctor in October and my goal is to be under 200, it would be great if I could be around 175 by then but we will just see, I will be MORE than happy to be under 200, whatever that number is. We don't have a scale in this house and I probably will not get one either. I will weigh myself when I go to my moms and when I go to the doctor. Other than that I will just go by how my clothes are fitting. Today I am in a size 20-22 pants and an XL top, my bra is a 40 big (I am breast feeding so the cup size isn't really accurate at the moment anyway! lol). I will do waist and hip measurements maybe tomorrow and the next time I shower, put makeup on and fix my hair I will do a semi before pic. I would love to have lost all 90 pounds by Mallory's first birthday but we shall just have to wait and see.
