Pals -- I HIT GOAL!
I just can't believe it. I was beginning to wonder if there would just never be a feeling of "done," but I got it this morning. Stepped on the scale after 2 weeks. Lots happened in that 2 weeks including vacation, graduation, and a bad cold. Down 5lbs (in 2 weeks). What a wonderful note to end on. I have now lost more than I currently weigh. That blows my mind.
I came downstairs and my husband and son thought my weigh in had gone badly since I was just sort of expressionless and stunned. ha-ha It took me a while to get the words out. I just can't believe it.
Ever since I was 14 years old, every birthday wish, every new year's resolution, every shooting star (unless we were trying to conceive) was about losing this weight. I've finally done it. I could shout for joy and sob uncontrollably all at the same time.
I will begin Phase 3 Saturday.
I want to thank all of you. From answering my questions to withholding "enabling," you have always given me what I needed when i needed it.
