I DID IT!! I HIT MY GOAL WEIGHT AT WEIGHT WATCHERS!!!!!!
Almost 2 years, and with LOTS of hard work and dedication I am proud to say that I have lost 92.6 lbs!!!!
I was and still am in shock. I was honestly certain that I wouldn’t lose the 1.6 lbs I needed to reach goal, let alone be down 2.2 lbs!!!!
As soon as I saw her write down a FIVE after the 1, I started sobbing (my goal weight is 160…I weighed in at 159.4 as you can tell by the picture so I don’t even know why I’m telling you this). I grabbed my face and squatted down in front of scale. I couldn’t believe it. I was really prepared to have to wait another couple of weeks to get to goal and drive myself and all of you insane.
I pretty much cried for a while. All while calling Frankie, my mom and letting my tweeps on Twitter know of the news. I cant describe the feeling. My leader had me stand up infront of everyone and talk about the journey a little bit. Seeing the tears in some of my fellow memebers eyes just touched me in so many ways. I’m at a loss for words about it all.
It all seems too surreal. I’m almost quiet. I feel like I have 10,000 emotions and I don’t know what to do with them all. I want to scream, smile, punch something, cry, scream again LOL. I go through waves of happiness, then waves of sadness.
It’s a lot to process mentally and I think that’s what I will be focusing on this weekend. Maybe unplug from the blog & Twitter for the most part and collect my thoughts. Get together a plan in my head about how I will tackle the 6 weeks of maintenance I now have to do to become a lifetime member. And really just reflect on this whole part of the journey. It’s just simply amazing and I can’t believe I did it. Well…to be completely honest...I can.
I have to thank every single one of you *so much* because without your support & love, this journey would have been so much harder. The advice and encouragement and inspiration that many of you give me just overwhelms me sometimes, but in a good way of course. I couldn’t have gotten here alone and I thank you guys so much for being with me.
The journey doesn’t end here…another journey has just started. Obviously I will keep on blogging about Weight Watchers because that will *always* be part of who I am. Thursday nights will always be my “Weight Watcher Night”. I have the journey of maintenance now to work on and I will need your guys amazing support more than ever!!
Now…GO CELEBRATE AND HAVE A BEER FOR ME!!
Because TJ asked for an updated progress pic...I took one. Kind of silly in a way since I just did one and you cant really tell the difference between the last one and this one where I'm 3.2 lbs lighter. I think I look skinner in the other one LMAO...but here you go....
