Mini Goal #5 Accomplished!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

This morning, after being woken up before the sun, I decided to get up despite it being much earlier than weekday alarms. So I did my usual routine and weighed myself.

I'm at 175 even! No more .2's or extra pounds, it read (all 3 times to be sure) 175! So I finally got to put the date on my Spark Page, even if it's months later than I'd like, I still got to write the date!

Some people may think this means I should go out and spend money to celebrate. I don't do that. I hardly have the money for necessities, so when I stop fitting into clothes, that's about the only reason I go out and splurge on myself. I like the feeling I get when I can check that one more thing off my list. It's a sense of pride that comes from being able to check off that list.

You wouldn't go out on a spending spree because you cleaned out the closet or garage? You would just be happy that it was done. That's how I feel from getting that next little goal checked off.

So that makes for 5 mini goals, 55 pounds, 3 pants sizes, and the skinniest wife my husband has ever been with (I'm his only).

Now off to finish mini goal #6, 161 pounds and 30% gone!

    Yay! Congratulations on all accounts - and congratulations to your husband for scoring on the amazing woman he keeps on his arm! I hear you on the spending money. Except for the new jeans last weekend, I haven't bought any new clothes since September, and most of them are too big already. Maybe come around May, when I will need some shorts, I will buy some clothes for spring/summer. Everything I have for warm weather is too, too big.
At the rate you are going, you don't want to spend any money - 161 will come easier as the weather warms and you continue on this streak of yours!

    Great job of reaching mini goal 5. I too have not done anything celebrating for losing weight. Maybe one day I will, but for now I don't find it necessary for me.

    What a milestone! And while I try to celebrate everything, like you, I don't think a spending spree is a good idea, especially when I don't have extra money. That sounds destructive! Savoring the moment is absolutely the best!!

I've been known to hit a garage sale iso of a real deal tho (a few bucks). But that only works if you like to hunt and shop! However you celebrate, WHAHOOOOOOO YOU!!

    Congrats! It is such a great feeling and you are looking terrific! You will get to your next goal and who cares if it is later than what the timeline says! I am behind mine too but since I know I will eventually get there, it simply doesn't matter to me.
Keep on going, you are doing great!
