Halfway There

Friday, December 04, 2009

As of weigh-in today, I've lost 50-1/2 pounds. I'm over halfway to my goal weight, and it feels great! There really are no words that can adequately express how I feel. I could only imagine when I started this journey back in April that I would reach this milestone.

I'm especially proud that I've overcome so many opportunities for setbacks, given a lot of unexpected stressors that have come up, especially in the last 3 months. But I have not succumbed to emotional eating. I've got this thing licked, and it feels great. Let's see -- 8 months, 50 pound loss -- I'll take it!

And I owe so much to SparkPeople. I'm so glad I found this site. It has helped save my life in so many ways.

    I am so proud of you, of what you've accomplished, what you've learned, and what you've become! That is wonderfully fantastic. It takes awhile but it also took awhile to put the weight on..and now what you've taken off. Can you imagine what 50 lbs of fat must look like...yuck. But it is gone, you are halfway through your journey. Oh how we are going to PARTY when we get to our goals...raise the roof!
