Merry Christmas everyone!

I got my best Christmas gift ever this morning. I reached my goal weight of 130 pounds today of all days. I was hoping for the end of the year but it happened now. Even a lovely birthday dinner with longtime friends at a Thai restaurant did not stop the downward trend. I am ecstatic! :cloud9:

I struggled with a huge stall from the third week of January to July 26 when I tweaked my WOE to stop the cravings. From then on it has been steadily going with two whooshes. July 26 I weighed 179, so I lost 49 of the total in 22 weeks. Cool, huh?

I did Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred in Nov./ Dec. and that helped mightily to keep going down. I plan on many healthy activities now. I want to to do the Shred again -doing the advanced version. I want to enter the Vancouver Sun Run Marathon and also to climb the Grouse Grind (Grouse Mountain). It's a brand new day and I am so excited about my life. The horizon is filled with possibilities.

I will be posting photos shortly. Today I will be going to Christmas dinner with longtime friends who have supported me through some pretty dark days. They are precious and close to my heart.
