This is 40 pounds

This is what losing 40 pounds looks like on me! (30 pound lost from the left most picture to the middle, ten pounds from the middle picture to the right most picture). I would like to lose 20 more at least, then see where it goes from there.
I am posting this now because I am off to a wedding in a day, and my face is liable to be twice the size by the end of the weekend, with the amount of calories that'll be going down my gullet!
What are you proud of lately?

What a Ride

Wow, I did not intend to go on a two month Blogging hiatus! It's a pattern I've noticed - I'll Blog tons for several weeks, then fall off of the face of the Earth, even when I have a schedule to keep.
I've just had a ton of personal stuff going on, too boring to recount here. I pretty much had to shut everything down in my life but the essentials for a while, and work on things that needed to be worked on.
But, good news everyone, everything I've fallen behind on will be rectified later today, and all packages and whatnot will be sent, thanks so much to those super patient awesome people who haven't bitten my head off!

On a better note!
I've lost 40 pounds (18 kilograms) and can run up to five miles (8.04 kilometers).

This picture is from a couple of months ago, and I've lost about another ten pounds since, but it does give a good idea of the weight I've lost. I feel so good!
Well, hopefully I've cured myself of this insomnia and can go nap for another couple of hours before the four year old in the next room comes in to jump on me. :)
