Goodbye to my punching bag!

While I was doing a Google search, I came across a thread on 3 Fat Chicks on a Diet that caught me by surprise. The title was "What Does 100 Pounds look like?"

It caught my eye because that's the exact amount I have to go if I want to reach my goal weight of 131 pounds and be half the girl I used to be.

The first was a rubber band ball. It was big - 18.9" diameter. I thought it was cool, but didn't really connect with it.

There were other pictures posted, like a huge pile of simulated fat on a table around a bowl of cereal. A silly one was the "World's Largest Golf Club". Bags of sugar stacked.

The one that really struck me for some reason, though, was a picture with two punching bags. The poster mentioned that one alone weighed 100 pounds.

I've been around these before and have felt how heavy they are. It's so strange to realize that I'm currently lugging around a whole punching bag on my body. No wonder I have such asthma problems sometimes, and my body hurts, and it's just not as easy for me.

I'm waving goodbye to my punching bag. By this time next year or sooner, it will be completely gone!
