I finally did it, though, and I'm so excited.
I lost 100 lbs last year on May 30th, precisely 100.2 lbs. Then the following week I gained a half a pound then the week after that I took a no-weigh-in-pass because I gained a little over 10 lbs. When I weighed in the week after that, I was still up 4 lbs and from there on out, it was up a pound, down a pound, up 5 pounds, down 2 pounds, etc., etc., all year long.
Until today. Today I lost 1.2 lbs to bringing my total loss to 100.6 lbs. The most I've ever lost. And I don't EVER want to lose those 1.2 lbs ever again! I'm tired of losing the same pounds over and over. I'll bet you I've gained and lost 60 pounds since last May.
Not any more.
I see my goal clearly and I know what steps I need to get there. No sacrifice. No denying myself. Only positive steps towards a goal I deserve.
It was really cool when I weighed in this morning. The lady who was weighing me, Cathy, and Ned (my leader) and Barb (the other receptionist), were all huddled around the computer screen waiting for the computer to display the results. It was funny because they all stopped what they were doing and leaned in together.
The computer took forever and I even made the comment "Did I break the scales again??". When finally the computer spit out the results and they all three started yelling and jumping up and down and cheering "You did it!! You did it!!" I couldn't believe it.
Cathy even came out from around the counter and gave me a big hug. Was so cool!
They made such a big ruckus that I heard people who were behind me in line saying "someone must have made goal today". Boy, the way we were all cheering, you'd think I would have reached goal. Well, I reached "A" goal, but not actual goal. But a big goal nonetheless.
What a relief!
And then, during the meeting when it came time to do celebrations, Ned stopped and said, "First, before we get started with celebrations, there's something that I want to give to Cara because she's reached a huge goal today" and he walked over to me and handed me a Weight Watchers certificate congratulating me for losing 100 pounds. And a tiara. Yes, that's what I said, a tiara. Cathy and Barb came over to partake int he celebration and Cathy said "no that wont do" because I took the tiara and placed it in my lap. She grabbed it from me, tore open the package and placed the tiara on my head. What a hoot!
(There's a lady behind me, that's why it looks like my hair is so big, it's not my hair at all)
You know I was so doubtful that I'd actually make my 100 lb mark today after I'd gained 4 pounds of water gain last weekend. It took me until Friday morning before I had almost all of it off. I was still about a half pound up on Friday morning. But I did what I was supposed to all week and I drank lots of water and it all came off and then some.
Whew! That was a close one!
My next goal is goal. I'm 9.6 pounds way from Weight Watcher's goal. That'll put me down to 155. I still want to lose more than that, but I'm going to keep my Weight Watchers goal at 155 for now. I think eventually I'd like to get down to 145. Would be really sweet if I could get down to 135 because then I would have lost half my body weight. But I'm sure at my age, 135 isn't realistic or healthy.
So on to my next goal. Here I go...
