I finally faced the scale today… and have great news to report!
I WEIGH LESS THAN 200 lbs!
I WEIGH LESS THAN 200 LBS!!
Hmmm… I kind of expected bells to ring and parades to be taking place in town, but instead I celebrated quietly. I bantered with encouraging friends via BBM who were eagerly awaiting the results, excitedly shared a phone call with my fellow JC’er/sis-in-law Beth, and I wore a perma-smile ALL DAY LONG. That’s how I celebrated, and I also added two more rewards. 🙂
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER IT
I know that some of you MUST be fans of the Biggest Loser. I can’t believe that I’m the only one out there who gets wildly motivated by watching the cast members lose amazing amounts of weight. Well, this season, I just LOVED the ladies who competed. Sisters and Purple Team Members Hannah Curlee and Olivia Ward were my faves, particularly Hannah.
Even though she wasn’t the Biggest Loser, I just related a lot to her story as a single girl from Nashville who had a significant amount of weight to lose. Well, she wore a necklace to EVERY weigh in that I just loved. Anyone else see it?
Through the magic of the internet, I found the necklace at Zoe Chicco Jewelry‘s website. I wanted it to be my ONEderland necklace, and so it is. A reminder to me that I never want to see that TWO again, and a beautiful piece to be proud to wear as a result of my accomplishment. One larger circle to represent where I was, and the smaller one to represent where I am and where I will be in the future – SMALLER.
I debuted my necklace today, and I love it. 🙂
SOMETHING TO SAVOR
Shame on me for rewarding myself with food…. but I decided to have a small cup of Golden Spoon frozen yogurt (4 oz) to celebrate as well. A reasonable snack that could be incorporated into my diet, I’ve only ONCE gone into the yogurt shop since it popped up about 8 months ago next to my usual grocery store. HUGE WILLPOWER, right?
Well, I had a 4 oz. Cake Batter Fat Free Yogurt, and it was yummy and refreshing. I don’t crave it or need it tomorrow, but I just kind of wanted it today. So, I did it!
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH THIS PROCESS! I can’t even tell you how encouraging your comments have been.
Note: This process has been much easier than I thought it would be 57 lbs ago. If you don’t think you can do it and/or doubt you’ll make it far enough, be determined and WANT it. That’s all I’ve done, the secret to my success. I promise I don’t even wear a cape. 🙂
Alright, let’s go after that last 33.8 lbs now!
