Oh, Oh, Oh...Two Oh Nine!

Thank you scale gods! I saw 209 this morning. I am not sure if it will stick, but dammit, I saw it! I love it when I get into the next weight bracket and this one is a very exciting one. Being in the two-oh's is awesome. Getting that much closer to saying goodbye to the 200's altogether. I can't believe that I am so close to that. We are talking decades of being in the 200's. I was in high school the last time I was under 200 and I am no spring chicken.

Slow and steady weight loss is a good thing, but boy can it drive you crazy as you get so wrapped up in one pound at a time you can easily forget the accumulative effect that each of those pounds adds up to. Like right now, I am totally obsessed with the next 9 pounds, but I forget that I wouldn't even be here if I hadn't lost the 94 pounds prior to that. What an amazing journey this has been, some days I still feel like this is somebody else's life.


  1. way to go on your loss! I'm back on the losing bench now too. Doesn't it feel great!

  2. You'll be Onderland before you know it!

  3. OH!! How awesome, just you wait, you'll be in the '100's' before you blink!
