Well, something AWESOME happened to me, today! I stepped on the scale this morning (my SP weigh day) and I am now lower than the weight I was when I graduated HS!! I am now 198.4. I know it may sound like that isn't huge, but I haven't seen this weight in 21 years! I am SUPER happy and EXTREMELY excited!!! I about passed out in the bathroom! That would've been bad, as everyone is still asleep in my house! What a ruckus that would've been! LOL
I can't believe that since Jan 23rd, I have lost 16lbs! That is just beyond real to me. I fit better in my clothing, I have more energy. I didn't think that I would ever see ONEDERLAND. I did it, I did it!!!
Sorry...I am tooting my own horn. Not cool! ;( I don't like to gloat about myself. I know what I had to do in order to get this far, and I also know I have about 34 more lbs to go, but I have hit a major milestone in my journey.
My 10 year old daughter has noticed my weight change. She told me how proud she was of me, the other day. I can't tell you how much that made me want to cry... my own 10 year old, beautiful daughter, noticing what I am doing. She is my "healthy" eater. She will reach for fruit, before she reaches for anything else. It's so cute. My daughters (ages 9 and 10) are so curious about the WW point system, so when I tell my husband that a certain meal that I fixed is a certain amount of points, one of them will ask, "Is that good?" Love that they are interested. Love that I can eat my own food. Love that I am not feeling deprived in any way. My mom's birthday was Friday and my sister and I took her out to lunch. I ate half my lunch and boxed the other half, all because I wanted a piece of banana cream pie. lol The way it was before... I would've ate my WHOLE lunch and THEN indulged in the pie. Now mind you, that pie was 11pts, so I only ate 1/2 of it, but it was STILL GOOD!!
I try to have one small piece of chocolate a day (like a Hershey miniature). This way, I still feel like I am indulging myself.
Okay, I am done gloating about this! :) Thank you to all of you for being such a huge support to my journey! I am FOREVER grateful to you! Have a fantastic week, all!!!
