I did it! I lost 50lbs!

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.

    I’m going to try to be there tonight too, although I have a very sore throat…so depends on how I feel and if I am up to sticking around for 2.5 hours after work.
