Hit my original goal weight today, 372 days from Day 1

Sunday, April 07, 2013

It has been a great journey. I hit my original goal weight today. Rejoice. While I have decided to recalibrate to 5 fewer pounds for my goal weight at maintenance, I think it is important to pause and appreciate the moment.

I am so lucky--I have a wonderful spouse who encouraged me and supported me, even when I was not being my best self. I have a dear family that means the world to me who has kept me sane. I am blessed to have financial resources so that I can afford healthy fresh food and access to leisure and fitness activities. I do not think for a minute that I can take for granted that I went on this journey as a person of privilege, which makes it all that much easier to achieve.

I need to keep going to get to where I want to go. But today I am busy counting my blessings.
