WEIGH IN DAY UPDATE

I weighed a day early this week. Today is Dad's Birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!) and we are all going out to eat. Mom, Dad, Husband, Shecky, myself, and my brother and his family. We're going to a Cajun buffet place. We baked Apple Pie and made Dad's favorite addition to it... Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream. I'm eating what I want today. Hence, the day early weigh in.

::Does Happy Dance In My Chair:: I lost NINE pounds this week. That's right, 9 pounds!!!! I've lost a total of 40.6 pounds to date. I'll hit 10% of my body weight lost in 6 more lbs. I'll have lost 50 pounds shortly after.

THIS PLAN IS WORKING!!!!! For the first time in DECADES, and that's not an exaggeration, I feel hopeful that I can actually loose this weight. That it is POSSIBLE to loose this huge amount of weight on my own. (When I say on my own I mean without surgery. I couldn't have come even THIS far without a lot of love, support and help from family and friends.)

I... yanno... I almost have no words to describe how I'm feeling right now. I KNOW I have a long way yet to go but I've come a long way in just 7 weeks. Its one Hell of a ride so far. I can't wait to see what's around the next corner...

bask in those good vibes as it was just days ago that you were in the wallyworld pits.

Celebrating and acknowledging all that joy is just going to keep more of it coming your way - and get you through the next rough patch.
