Default First 50 lbs gone!

So today is Christmas Eve and it's also Thursday which is my weigh in day. I have really struggled this holiday season and it's been really tough to stick to plan. I have tried not to be so tough on myself, but I was really disappointed in some of my slip ups. I decided that this week I wasn't going to worry about it, afterall it's Christmas! I got on the scale this morning and I have officially hit the 50 lb. mark! I am so excited! Even though I know I could have done better and I know I could have lost more, I am so proud of myself. I am also so lucky to have found this site. Whenever I had questions or just needed to get back on track, I always came here and you guys have always helped me and for that I am grateful! I am almost halfway to my ultimate goal and only 9 lbs from Onderland! I feel awesome and just wanted to share with the people who have helped me tremendously! Thank you!

What a great Christmas Presents! Good 4 U!!
2011(ish) and I didn't understand:
Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I'm making a plan & working that plan. I have direction & discipline! Who knew it was possible?
