A Christmas Miracle

15 comments

Well folks, this isn’t exactly a miracle but yesterday I gave myself the best gift that one could ever ask for…the gift of health.

As of yesterday, December 23rd 2010 I became a Lifetime member at Weight Watchers!!

To reach Lifetime I had to achieve my weight loss goal (which I did & the post about that is here) and then maintain that weight for 6 weeks.  During the maintenance period I went up and down a few lbs but I always stayed below my goal weight. 

As of yesterday I have lost a total of 99.6 lbs!!!! 

Now I only have to weigh-in once a month and as long as I am not 2 lbs over my goal weight I will no longer have to pay for meetings. Nice!

I can’t believe I am now a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers.  I never really dreamt about this until a few months ago and it still seems all so surreal to me.  I know though that I have worked really, REALLY hard for this and I deserve this accomplishment!!

I’ve been on the weight loss journey now for 2 years and I’d be lying if I said that I’m not somewhat relieved to not have to focus on the “weight loss” part as much.  This doesn’t mean that I stop doing what I’ve been doing though.  I *NEVER* want to go back to the “bigger” me or partake in those behaviors again!  I still have to make healthy choices and track my food.  I have been using all these amazing tools that Weight Watchers has provided me with and I plan to continue using them for the rest of my life! 

But, I look forward to the little things like maybe not having to worry about retaining so much water on Thursdays or only having really light meals so the scale doesn’t blow up or anything. I would say that this means I can drink beer on Wednesday nights now but lets be honest, it never stopped me in the first place.  But I guess this means I can drink at lunch on Thursday’s now Winking smile

Frankie came to my meeting to see me get my award.  I can’t even begin to describe how happy that made me.  It really meant a lot to me that he came.  Afterwards we went out to Applebee’s to have a couple beers and split some appetizers.  Here I am with my very first beer as a Lifetime member…

I don’t know if I’m going to drink that beer, or going to Hulk smash it & kill someone…what’s with my face?!?!

And here are some photos of me from Tuesday night at the bar (Frank plays darts).  Rocking the skinny jeans and my new boots….I’ll have more pictures of the boots later.

I hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!  I leave you with a picture of my fabulous Christmas tree…
