What a wonderful Birthday gift to me!
Sunday, March 31, 2019
So yesterday was my Birthday and although I was not where I would have like to have been, I did make a few great steps!
So, at WW (started after I started dieting here) I hit my 40.8 lb loss. But on SP I actually hit 46.4 lb loss. And what that is is my half way to my first goal. Which is Onderland! 45 lbs to go. And on top of that, once I get there, I will only BE 45 lbs away from my actual GOAL WEIGHT! Small goals people :)
So on my 54th Birthday, I hit a 46 LB loss (or 40 lbs at WW), my halfway point OR my 1/3 way to goal. SO yeah it was a fabulous Birthday yesterday!
But the week is even better than that! I have my yearly physical on Wednesday. Got my results back ON MY BIRTHDAY! WOOT! ANd EVERYTHING was clear! Woohoo!
I have been on High Cholesterol meds for a few years now. And one of my MAIN goals was to get off of that and be healthy again! Well, when I received the results, all were back to NORMAL (or better) I was pretty excited!
So here I am, onto my second half and doing the HAPPY DANCE! YAY ME! And I just wanted to share with you all. IT CAN BE DONE!
And might I add, it did NOT come off fast. I did this all in EXACTLY 9 months. So although it took me 9 months to lose 46 lbs, I LOST 46 LBS! Had bad days/weeks Not many, but enough and I had some very low lose weeks. But I have not ever given up on ME. And that is what counts! So peeps, if you are reading this and you are struggling, pls do NOT give up on you! For 10 years now (on SP) I have kept trying to find what works for me and I always just gave up ON ME and what I wanted! Well, no more! I would rather it take me another 9 months to lose another 46 lbs and have it GONE, then to be back where I was and miserable! AND UNHEALTHY! We didn't gain all this overnight and we will NOT lose it all overnight. So just give yourself time! YOU GOT THIS!!!
A HUGE Shoot out to my wonderful friend who has stuck with me from the VERY BEGINNING! And She has reached GOAL WEIGHT! WOOHOO Dallasmaine You have been my rock girl. THANK YOU for being here every single day! Congrats on hitting your goal! You worked super hard and deserved to be there! :)
So everybody, no matter what. GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE! It is so worth it! I feel GREAT! I can do things I haven't done in a long time. I am now giving myself pedicures :) WOOHOO!!!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL-WE GOT THIS! :)
