Default out of the 230s!!!

This morning made my day. I got on the home scale and I saw 229.2 Wow! I'm less than 30 pounds to goal weight!

I'm running late to my weight watchers meeting, but had to get online and share.

Today I am meeting a friend that I haven't seen for 5 years. Its a long story, but I'm glad we are going to reconnect. She saw photos of me and facebook and couldn't believe I was the same person .

Happy Saturday everyone.
Height: 6'2
Starting weight/ Current low weight/"redline" weight
Total: 267.6 pounds.

I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2.

Oh Matt, that is wonderful!!! I LOVED getting into new decades, or should I say getting out of the old ones!?!! SO very thrilling and rewarding. That scale just keeps heading down in the right direction for you - due to your hard work that is.

Oh and that friend of yours - she's gong to be blown away when she sees you up close and personal. Have fun.

Wow Matt that is awesome! Have a great Saturday and enjoy catching up with an old friend! Peace be with you!
2011(ish) and I didn't understand:
Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I'm making a plan & working that plan. I have direction & discipline! Who knew it was possible?
