O. M. G.!! (layman's terms... Oh My Goodness!!

Sunday, March 03, 2013

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!! emoticon 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!!! emoticon

    Toot that horn, baby!! What you may not realize yet is that your excitement over your own success is infectious and contagious and guaranteed to spread the Spark. Your blog this morning is the blog that reignites my flame after a semi-disastrous day yesterday and feelings of discouragement this morning. Congratulations on reaching Onderland! It's time for a happy dance (and don't forget to track those fitness minutes!)

    If the kids notice, you definitely look different. As I got smaller in the waist, my son would say how nice it was that his arms could almost double around just tell it like it is!

    Good for you!!!!! Keep doing what you are doing
