Default Whooshed into ONEDERLAND!


I went to my WW meeting this morning, stepped on the scale, and posted a 4lb loss, which pushed me over into ONEDERLAND! 199.6 to be exact.

I knew I was close but wasn't sure if I'd make it today or have to wait until next week (I weigh every day but only 'officially' count my Friday weigh-ins plus my scale is 2-3 pounds off the WW scale) so I was super excited when I saw the big grin on my leader's face as she looked at the screen and saw what I weighed. I admit, the emotion of the moment got to me and I was both grinning from ear to ear and choking up a bit.

This is the FIRST time in my LIFE that I have seen a 1 in front of my weight. When I started weighing myself in my late teens, I was already in the low 200s. So it's been at least 20 years. This is such a huge mental milestone for me. You know, when you are just starting off, and have this triple-digit number to lose, it sometimes seems so insurmountable, so 'what's the point' - in fact, that's partly why I have given up so soon so many times in the past. I don't know why this time it 'clicked' and I kept going, but I'm so happy and thankful I did. And now, I 'only' have 40 pounds to go to reach my goal. I can and will do this. There is no going back. I worked too hard and my life now is just too good to do that!

Anyway, I'm pretty darned giddy right now and I couldn't wait to come on to 3FC and share the news!

How great did it feel to put the "Met 7/30/10" on your 5th so-called "mini-goal" but that's no MINI accomplishment! CONGRATULATIONS! You are doing WONDERFUL!

So close ... now so far!

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip Toe if you must, but take the step.

Wiping the slate clean for 2013!

One for every 5 lbs. lost.
