This morning I stepped on the scale and it said 269!!!!
Not only did I made it to my goal of losing 50, but I made it into a new decade too!
I’m happy, but it also feels a little surreal. There has been so much build up to making it to the 50lb mark, that I can’t believe it’s now here.
I am rewarding myself with a massage and set my next goal at losing 60lbs, which will be 261. I think the next one after that is going to be 249 as I can’t remember the last time I was under 250.
I am very proud of myself.
Tonight is the monthly support group meeting and I’m definitely going. I don’t feel like I fully have my mojo back still, but even if I feel that way, I think support groups are still important.
A weight watchers leader once said:
When you gain, you need your meeting. When you lose, your meeting needs you.
Whether you do weight watchers or some other support group, I think that is a very true statement.
I also had an appointment with my therapist this morning and talked about how I have been doing and how focused I currently am after the couple of month lapse I was having. It feels really good to be "back".
One of the goals that I discussed with her that I am going to work on sticking to is writing in my blog daily, no matter what. Even if it’s just a short entry. I want to force myself to think about my weight loss and my goals every day. I want to force myself to think about what I am feeling. Writing in my blog is a great way to keep from avoiding thinking about these type of things.
