I am so disappointed. Normally I don't like attention for anything. Especially when I was at my heaviest, I just wanted to blend into the woodwork and not be noticed! But last Wednesday, when I got on my scale, and it read 199.6, I was so excited, thrilled and PROUD. I called down to my husband, who promptly brought up the camera from downstairs and he took the picture, I was afraid if I held the camera, it would weigh over .4 lbs. and I would go over 200 lbs AGAIN! I cropped my ugly feet out of the picture, posted it here along with a before and after picture. Then I sat back and waited for people to comment and congratulate me. NOTHING. In the last five days, not a single comment on what I consider to be a major milestone in my journey.
How many people in your REAL life can you tell that you now weigh less than 200 lbs? Not many people understand what a huge accomplishment that is, especially if I am unwilling to share with them that I started at 328 lbs. and it's been at least 30 years since I saw the 100's show up on my scale. Oh well, it's my own fault. About 10 days ago I took down my Spark page for personal reasons. I used to be dupster/loser Grandma. I started a new page the very next day when I realized I couldn't do this alone, but no one has found me yet I guess.
I have been posting on other blogs and message boards and 'friending' lots of interesting people whom I consider to be inspiring and who have similar stories to mine. Hopefully someone, somewhere will read my blog and see my pictures and just say, "WOW, that's great!" Cause that's really all I want.
