Elation! Met my goal!

Thursday, May 31, 2012

WOOOOO HOOOOO! I am so excited to have reached my goal! When I re-started SP (for the 3rd time) on December 29, 2011, I set a goal to lose 30 pounds by June 1. Today was my weigh-in for my nutrition class, and I DID IT! I am down 30 pounds and tomorrow is June 1. It feels sooooo good, even more so because the last time I really was into SP, I never met the goal I had set. For the first time just this week, I actually feel lighter. I don't see it when I look in the mirror, I don't see it when I look at old pictures, but I feel lighter. Of course I can tell in my clothes. I've also been taking my measurements and am happy to report I've lost 20 inches as well.

Now, it's time to get off the next 30 pounds. It's too overwhelming for me to say I've got to lose 100 pounds, I feel like I could never do that, so I'm doing it in 30 pound increments. But for now, I'm going to just enjoy this moment and the view of my ticker saying I've reached the goal!

    Congratulations on reaching your first 30 lb loss goal! You are a success! Thank you for sharing it with us. I wish for you to be successful on the next 30 lbs. emoticon

    I have less than 10 lbs to lose (actually 3 lbs now) finally to reach the goal weight that my doctor's set for me.

    Original SW (March 2009).........350 lbs.
    ..............153 lbs.
    GW set by doctor's.................150 lbs.

    I've been on my journey for 3 yrs, 3 mos. I could not have come this far without God and the support & encouragement of Spark People.

    I wish for you many successes along your journey to the new you. Always remember to keep your gloves on until emoticon YOUR fight is won! Approach every day as this is the new day that you've been waiting for!

    Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you! emoticon
