In the Home Stretch

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

I have made the last Saturday of every month my official weigh-in/measurement day. That means two Saturday's ago was my most recent weigh-in. I broke the 200 lb. mark!! While it was not an official goal of mine, I think anytime you drop below a "hundred" mark it is a milestone.

If I'm not mistaken I believe the last time I weighed below 200 was nearly 15 years ago when I had a warehouse job. I quit that job, took a desk job and had been gaining ever since. Until last February, that is. I have approximately 15 more lbs. to goal till I'm at what Spark says is the weight I should be at. While the journey hasn't exactly been a walk in the park every step of the way, I am still wondering when this is going to start becoming difficult. Y'know, I'm not sure it will.

I probably just jinxed myself. emoticon

    While it hasn't exactly been a walk in the park for me, this weight loss process hasn't been too terrible difficult for me, either. And I know that you mean about the milestone of seeing that first digit on the scale change.

    However, what I'm really excited about seeing (hopefully before the end of the year) is the other thing you commented on: seeing a number on the scale that I haven't seen in 10 or 15 years. I'm about 40 pounds from that mark, and I can't wait!

    Congrats on your success! Keep up the great work! emoticon
