I had my weigh in today at Weight Watchers. I briefly mentioned the other day that I had gotten to goal – only .2 pounds below it but I was there! However, I had weighed in on Friday (missed my regular meeting while in Vegas) which meant, no Melissa and no regular WW leader to celebrate with me. My mom was with me – which was cool, because we don’t typically go to the same location - and she does a pretty good job of being excited for me! I was excited to go today so I could tell Jaime (WW leader) that I had made goal last week and to get my little rock star charm!

I was nervous about the scale – but I always am so I was just hoping I was still at goal! Well, my body must have liked getting back to a routine this week because I lost 2.8 pounds this week! I am officially 3 pounds under my goal and have lost 67.8 pounds total since I started this journey back in September.
I feel good…nope, I feel GREAT! I am currently at the smallest weight I have been in a very long time. I was trying to find pictures of me from the past when I was this size and I can’t find any! I am sure they exist but it clearly was not in the digital age – because I have a computer at home full of pics and I don’t look like this in ANY OF THEM! Not even my wedding day – I am even smaller than that day and I thought I was rockin it back then! I did have this picture of myself from the summer before my senior year of high school – my friend Steph and I had gone to the cabin with my family and we were at the beach in our swimsuits – I was “skinny” and I have always shown my husband that picture and said “this is what I want to look like again”. I have to get that pic out and scan it in – I bet I am pretty close if not already there!
I don’t have a lot to say today except that I am so happy and proud of where I am today. I can genuinely say I am happy with where I am. Do I have more work to do? Sure. But today I am going to enjoy my new body, my new attitude and my new life! I have earned it! It’s a beautiful day in MN today and I plan to go for a walk with the family after dinner tonight and enjoy it! We are a happy, healthy family and I couldn’t be happier about it!
Thank you to each and everyone of you that has supported and encouraged me! I could not have done any of this without the love and support I received along the way. I am far from done – this is a life long journey I am on – so keep it coming!
Be well my friends!
