Weigh In and Hot Damn!!

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!


  1. I am *SO* proud of you!! WAY TO GO!! You are seriously amazing and I just love your attitude. You are absolutely right about it getting harder, not easier, as we get closer to goal. That has been my trouble lately but like we both*t happens. We can't give up and obviously sexy haven't given up either!! Keep kicking ass and taking names!! I'm so happy for you!! XOXO

  2. You are an inspiration to me, you have no idea and your support is incredible. Thank you!
