Goal! - One year, one month and 20 days
09-11-2009, 06:51 AM
That's how long it took me to reach my goal!
I started Weight Watchers on July 22, 2008. I weighed 228lbs.
Today I reached my goal. I weigh 134 lbs.
I set up a plan and it worked! I concentrated on losing 10% of my body weight at a time. I did it 5 times, losing a total of 94 lbs (41% of my starting weight). I can't believe it worked. :D
I will post more (including pictures), when I gather my thoughts and stop jumping up and down.
Thank you, 3FC, for being here.

Congrats, Heather :congrat:
You've helped me more than you know. I'm so happy to hear you've reached your goal and can continue your path as a long term maintainer....one day at a time.
3FC is great, whatever plan we choose to follow. I look forward to your continued insight.
Thanks for being here for me.

Heather, Congratulations! You must feel so great. What an accomplishment.
The day before I started my weight loss journey, I read your post "One year from now you will be glad you started." It continues to inspire me.
Well done and thanks for posting!

Aw, thanks ladies! I feel fantastic today, and the urge to reward myself with a huge pig out is manageable (at least right now! LOL)
Here (http://i545.photobucket.com/albums/hh388/MrsWolf/Goal.jpg) is the first shot of me at the start, halfway (50 lbs lost) and at goal (94 lbs lost).
I will take better pictures later.
