Very, very, real progress.

Saw my GP today, it's been six months since the last visit when I'd just started being treated for the infernal birth defect I've had, well since birth. It was the first time I actually looked forward to getting on the scale at my doctor's office.
When I walked in, everyone looked at me and said Sami, you've lost weight!
But seeing the doctor's scale tell them just how much weight I'd lost, that was priceless.
I love Sparkpeople.com, and I love the ticker and all the gadgets that help me track what I'm doing. But it wasn't really real to me until my doctor looked at me and said "You've lost 40 pounds since the last time you were here?!?!"
That's when it was really real for me. And I'm still going. I'm supposed to see her again in November, and plan to have lost at least another 40 by then. That's going to be so cool, and I can taste it now, feel it now, tell that it's real and an actual destination, not a fantasy, because I was there today when the doctor confirmed that what I'm seeing and doing at home is real if that makes any sense.
I'm sparking it up!
