Bingo!

Stepped on the scale this morning and got the news I've been waiting my entire adult life for.


That's right! I finally broke that 200 lb barrier for the first time in my life. If I had to guess, the last time I was under 200 lbs was high school or maybe even junior high. I can't believe I made it. Of course I went out and celebrated at dinner tonight. That number will climb back up a little between now and Sunday, but I'm okay with that. If I get upset, I just need to refer back to this posting and look at that beautiful number (and the scale that could use a once over with some Windex).

I, for one, am grateful that the scale didn't show us a mirror image of your junk from below. :) I digress, anyway...Congrats!

I deleted my earlier comment because I wanted to add something. Original comment: WOOHOO! Honey, I'm SO happy for you!

Addition: Ignore those two wenches up there -- be proud of your junk and show it to the world!

Congrats!!! You rock! I'm going to send over my hubby so you can whip him into shape too!

Yea, Walt! You really inspire me. You have a real-life approach to this. You're not some food Nazi with will power I can never match. You get the job done and still enjoy your food.

To reach this goal in snowy March - that is a huge achievement during hibernation and eating season!

Congratulations!

Thanks for the congrats, everyone. Even though I was in the 100s for just a day, it was the best feeling in the world. I'm getting closer and closer to that number everyday and I can't wait for it to be a real number for a very, very long time.

Laura,

I wish I had as much will power as people seem to think I have. If that were the case, I would be 175 and skeletal by now. I like how you called it a 'real life' approach, because that's really what it was. I'm the type of person who excels when there is structure, and a fad diet is nothing but structure. That's something, though, that I just couldn't do. So out of character for me. But I know that fad diets are just that... fads. You drop all the weight and stop the diet and gain it all back. That's the last thing in the world I want. I'm trying to undo 41 years of shitty eating habits, and it's a struggle every day. Developing better eating habits is extremely difficult. I'm not there yet, but I'm trying.

Erik,

I'll whip him into shape... for a price. :)

Walt said...

At what weight should I post pix of my junk?

Nessa said...

How much do you weigh now walt?! Post away! hahah!

Walt said...

You want it too bad. I'll have to be a tease for now. Until you bitches appreciate it more!!!

Nessa said...

hmph! I'll just ask Ken to sneak a picture for me!
