Onederland Finally!!!!!

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Today is my official weigh in day and I am so excited. My weight is finally below 200 pounds for the first time in decades. It feels wonderful. I saw 199 on Saturday and was excited but tried to not get too excited since my scale seems to bounce around a lot and show up higher on weigh in date. Today however it was a bit lower. I am really excited and really inspired to keep going.

A funny thing happened today. I decided to get a pedicure. I haven't been to the nail salon in months. The girls working there were nattering away in Vietnamese. The woman working on me looked up and said, did you lose a lot of weight. I had never seen this woman before but apparently the person who runs the place told her that and then explained that she did not recognize me at first because I've lost so much weight and had a new haircut.

I'm headed to my High School union and feeling really confident!

    I am so proud of you and I know how great it must feel to finally reach that new frontier. My weight loss, while somewhat slower isn't all that far away from my goal weight, my new prediction is that I will reach Onderland for the holidays. Ive never even considered going to a reunion i think I will go to my next H.S. reunion. I spent 99% of my post H.S. years chasing the dream and covering up my emotional baggage with food that I wouldn't even return phone calls from old classmates when they used to come in a couple times a year.

The new "me" is pretty darn happy with who I am becoming and what I am capable of (or soon will be). I have to ask you - did you think when you started this journey that your life would be so much richer in so many ways aside from the new body? I know that I had no idea that the side effect of WLS was the opportunity to re-discover the new "me," while meeting so many positively inspiring and supportive friends. Well done my friend indeed, well done!

I hope you're in the middle of a great weekend and thank you for sharing your life with me and the rest of the SparkWorld. Your friend, "Sprink"
