Default Blowing my own horn before I blow out of here...

I don't count it as offical because I only count the weigh in's at WW, but today at Curves I had to do my monthly weigh/measure day and according to their scales (which normally run 1-2 lbs higher than the WW scales) I am now at 218....which means I have now lost 101.6 lbs in the last 9 months! WOO HOO!!!

That said, I'll be flying out tomorrow for California so I won't be able to access the internet until next weekend. I expect to see lots and lots of losses posted to the Lose A Ton thread and the weekly weigh in threads from the rest of you for me to update when I get back!!!


Highest weight: 381.4 Recommitted 1/7/12 at 381.4

Melissa, you absolutely ROCK!!!!! I've kind of had a not so good last week, and I am afraid to step on the scale. I met my Mother's Day Challenge, and I hope I maintained it this past week. Reading your post did me alot of good for motivation!! Thank you!!

If you learn from your suffering, and really come to understand the lesson you were taught, you might be able to help someone else who's now in the phase you may have just completed. Maybe that's what it's all about after all...
