Ego Boost! :)

So, I had to go to the health department today to get my next refills on BC, and I tell you what, that nurse made me feel SO GOOD about my weight loss. :) Sometimes in the week to week anxiety over "1lb loss 3lb loss please let me lose SOMETHING", we forget about the long run. I have lost over 40lbs!!! That is a huge achievement!!!
Anyway, the nurse was so awesome. She was like, good JOB, Miss Dana! :D hahahah It was adorable. She asked me what I was doing, and I briefly told her about SparkPeople.com. I wish I had a little card with me to give her so she could remember it. But yeah.
In October 2005 I went and weighed in at 265. Last December when I went in I weighed 294. My chart in there says 289 so I wonder if the nurse felt bad for me and guesstimated it could be less? hhahaha but there is no way I can forget seeing those numbers on the scale because that was the MAIN catalyst for me turning my life around and getting healthy. There was NO WAY. NO WAY. I would ever weigh over 300lbs.
Well I visited again on (checked blog) March 23rd, and at that point in time I weighed in at the Dr's at probably 270 or so. (My records say the Monday after that I weighed in at 266, but I remember thinking at the Dr's office, hey that's more than I weighed in this morning!) so anyway. At that point in time the nurse was impressed and pointed out that I was almost where I was when I first started seeing them.
Now this time I proudly weighed in at 249! :D Now I'm weighing in at home at 247, but that's like, first thing in the morning, naked. hahaha So after breakfast fully clothed at the Dr's at 249 was soooo exciting! :) I'm BELOW 250!!!! I mean, I've been there but it just took then for me to really FEEL it. Because she was using one of those old school manual scales, and you know how there's the BIG counterbalance, and it had to move DOWN so that she could get the right lbs.
Oh it was great. hahahaha
Just had to share, because that moment was very gratifying to me!
