I didn't have to weigh in today - I usually weigh in on Friday mornings - but I beat my alarm this morning and decided "Why not?", so I made the trudge to the bathroom, took a deep breath, and stepped onto the scale.
For the first time since I've bought it, I was now below the goal weight of 350 I set, almost two years ago.
I wish I could say I had a huge celebration, but it was more a quiet surprise. I knew I was getting close - my clothes are getting to the "clown pants" stage again, and I put a couple new holes into my belt. I just smiled a bit, gave a little "Wow", and got on with my morning.
I've decided to set up "small goals" for now, rather than putting a big number in front of me and chasing it. My next goal is that I'd like to hit 325, and I think I'm just going to go like that, 25 pounds or so at a time, until I hit where I feel like it's "natural" for me.
Once I get there, the next big thing will be talking to my doctor about excess skin removal - the "flaps" are already very evident...part of me semi-seriously wonders if there's another 5-10 pounds that could come off just from that!
One last thing...I happened to go to a party the other weekend where guests were offered free headshots. I thought I'd share that here, too. It's nice to show off, right? ;)
