Hello goal weight.

Friday, February 01, 2013

This week, I hit my goal weight. If had imagined this moment at the beginning of my journey, I would I would have imagined me running through the streets yelling and giggling with glee, with balloons and confetti flying too of course.

The reality of it was that I hopped on the scale, saw 147 and said, "Well, there it is." I then hopped off and went about my day as normal.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to have finally gotten here. I put in a ton of work to do so, and I'm forever grateful to myself for making the effort to make a better me. I feel amazing, and have so much more confidence after losing 41 lbs. The fact is though, this really has become a lifestyle change for me. Now that I'm here I haven't changed a thing about what I'm doing. If seeing that number on the scale didn't invoke the reaction I once would have expected, I know now it is because the celebration truly was in the journey.

Thank you SparkPeople!
