I wanted so bad to post pictures today, but my camera has died and I am too dense to figure out how to do this from the cell phone, so you are going to have to use your imaginations to visualize the 4TH 10 POUND RIBBON I got at our meeting today. That's right folks, I have lost 40 lbs (actually 41) as of this morning! I had a 3 lb loss this week which is so cool and so motivating. I was just stuck for soo long and I really needed this.
This meeting was about celebrating and did we ever!! We really didn't have much of a meeting because there were so many people with great losses, 10, 20, 30, me at 40, a 75 lber, and a new lifetime member. It was awesome. I love our group so much and would almost consider not going any longer if, for some reason, I could not be a part of this particular group. We have a blast. Its irreverant, funny as all get out, and super supportive. Just what you need for this kind of trip.
I think that when you are first starting this journey and the weight comes off fairly quickly, its easy to get a little nonchalant about the program. You know "Well, hell, I can do this standing on my head. I don't even have to try!" Well, guess what? As you get closer to goal, it gets harder, not easier and requires your full attention to the program. You cannot just half-assed it. I am thankful that I maintained while I went wandering off gathering wildflowers instead of paying attention to the path. I am back and I am rockin' this thing!
