Operation Weight Loss Week 17- The incredible shrinking woman

I'm going to get right to it. I am down another 1.4 pounds this week bringing my grand total to 40 pounds! I've lost 40 pounds since November 23, 2009 - the week of Thanksgiving! I've remained consistent with my diet and exercise and I am proud to say I am seeing results. If you watch my video you will see that I can now wear my size 9 junior goal pants that I shared with you a few months ago. I used to wear these pants to the club - it has been ten years since they have graced my backside comfortably!

I've reached one of my goals but I still have other goals to meet. I want to lose another 12 pounds to reach my goal weight of 150 pounds and I want to fit in those Joe Jeans that I got for my birthday. Give me another month and I think I'll do it!

Now that I've shared with you some of my goals and I want to let you in on a goal that my girls at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans have going on this year. A group of them are running a half marathon with team in training to raise money for Leukemia and other blood cancers. Leukemia is close to home for me, my aunt and a cousin succumbed this disease. And two of my blogging buddies have children that are being treated and in remission for leukemia. As a matter of fact, years ago I was training for a triathalon with Team In Training but sadly I didn't do it. I may set that as a goal for next year but in the meantime I hope you can support the Sisterhood reach their goal of $50,000. For added incentive a party is going on and for every $5 you give you get entries to win a ton of cool stuff. For more info click HERE!

That's so inspiring, Renee! Congrats on the size 9s!! So proud of you!
You really do look amazing. I know I've said it 100x, but I am SO proud of you. So proud. You took the bull by the horns, and slammed it to the ground. I think you may have even kicked dirt in it's face :)

Those 9s are looking AMAZING on you! I think you need DO need to celebrate by hitting the clubs and doing some serious dancing, girlfriend! I LOVE that you said you could wear them outside. HA! I know how it feels to be able to get into the jeans and being able to get into them *and* wear them out in public.

Keep up the great work!!! You are so inspiring.
