Sayonara 250-ville! Can't say I'm sad to leave!!

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

I DID IT! (again) I finally officially left 250-ville and landed smack dab in to 240-ville with my weekly weigh in this morning of 247.6. Yahoo! I have actually visited 240-ville before, only to get pulled right back in to the 250's. Well NOT THIS TIME PAL! I am definitely NOT looking back at all.

I feel SO STRONG and MOTIVATED and EMPOWERED! I am kickin' butt and takin' names ya'll! No more EXCUSES! NO MORE Restarts! This is MY TIME and I'm going to do it for GOOD!

Bonues, last night, DH said "I thought to myself yesterday that you LOOK like you are slimming down. I'm so proud of you!" emoticon That made me feel great!

Of course, now that I'm in 240-ville, I've already got my sites on 230-ville. The elusive 230's. OhhhH! I haven't seen that village in a LOOOOONG time. So hitting the 239 mark is HUGE for me. I can.not.wait. I am so focused, it's crazy. But, this is so good this time. I haven't ever been this dedicated and determined in a very long time. The last few attempts (even while on Spark) have been half-hearted at best. I would go strong and steady for about 3-4 weeks, then crash and burn. The difference this time is that Iím really taking it slow and making very small, easy to sustain changes. Iím really working hard on changing my deeply embedded habits over a long period of time instead of going completely cold turkey. And look at where itís gotten me! 6 weeks later (including a 10 day vacation) and Iíve lost 17 lbs! Thatís an average of 2.8 lbs a week! Yahoo!! Iím being consistent and THATíS what matters.

Hereís to the next 6 weeks and -17 lbs (or more!)
