Mini-Goals - Hit "one"derland today - one of my big dreams!

Besides my tentative end goal of 175, I was dreaming, waiting, excitedly anticipating getting to below 200 pounds. For me, that's the weight that invisibly separates the 'normal' weight people and the very overweight people (for most women at least).

Now I still have a lot of flab, but losing 55 pounds is nothing to sneeze at! it's a huge chunk of this journey.

I hope I see it on the scales again tomorrow, but if not, very soon.

I've gone from loose size 20W to a comfortable size 14 (no W) in clothing. I have exercised for 201 hours in 2011 and I went from having uncontrollable diabetes numbers and scary high blood pressure to having normal blood pressure and blood sugars controlled by diet and fitness. I am truly getting healthy and this journey has been much smoother than I thought it would be. I guess I was ready.

Now onward to getting to 175!!!
