Talking I Did It!

I DID IT!!

I finally hit the 40 lbs lost mark!
It took me six months but the scale liked me today..
I was so excited, I got undressed to get in the shower and I was looking at the scale and figured WTH.
When I got on and I seen that it said 169 I started doing the happy dance like no other
Until of course I looked towards the mirror while dancing and decided I wasn't quit that happy yet..

Thank you everyone for all the sweet, nice and encouraging word!
I really am excited that I finally hit that mark.
It gave me the the push I needed and the courage to keep going. Because sometimes I just get fed up and feel like I am ready to quit but then the scale decides to be nice and I remember that it is totally worth it.
I also know that if it were not for all of you wonderful ladies and this site I would have given up a long time ago.
