Default 188 and feeling GREAT!!

Well...today was weigh day and I can't believe it. I just want to scream it from the mountain tops!! I'm at 188 and feeling GREAT! I never in a million years thought I would make it this far when I started my healthy way of life. I'm like (almost) a regular sized human. No pills, no surgery...just shear determination. I can't believe it. I'm in love with myself!

I haven't been in the 180's for many years. Wow, it's amazing!

divahood...that is so FUNNY!

Thanks to all for the support and encouragement. I joined 3FC right around the time I had lost 60 pounds and have been posting regular since....so I really haven't lost it all on my own. I have had lots of awesome cheerleaders along the way!
