Big day.

I just wanted to share on here that today was a big milestone for me on the WW front.

I lost 5.8 pounds (wow!) at my meeting, which put me at 32 pounds lost on the program since 8/21/07. And incidentally, that puts me at my 10% loss. Your first goal when joining WW is to lose 10%. In my case, my weight was in the 320s, so 32 pounds was my 10%. Equally as exciting is the fact that I am very much in the 200s!!! I have been teetering around it for a couple weeks, and I'm so happy to report that I am very much in them! 295.6 to be exact!

I hope you all are doing marvelously. I will be catching up later today, I promise! I think this is exactly the jump-start I needed to get my focus back 100%. I'm so ready to lose more weight!

Oh, and a quote I've been meaning to share for awhile... my WW leader had this on the board a few weeks ago & I liked it:
"'How does one become a butterfly?' she asked pensively. 'You must want to fly so much that you're willing to give up being a caterpillar.'" --Trina Pallus

*edit* I also just realized that I get a nice new outfit since I reached my 10%! That will be perfect since I'm starting my new job in a couple weeks! I'll get a "first day of work" outfit!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! How exciting to move into your next century and to make your 10% goal. I love that feeling when I reach a goal - I imagine it is like what moms say about "forgetting the pain" when you have a child. Seeing smaller numbers on the scale makes me want to keep going. Thank you for your compliments on my photos - you're very kind! I laughed out loud about your shorts comment - too true! Congrats again!
