Are you there, 180's? It's me, Amy.


It's good... it's good... don't get me wrong. I went to WW today & weighed in... I lost 2.4 pounds last week, bringing my current weight to 190.00. In case you didn't understand~ That's 190.000000000. OR... One hundred and ninety pounds. Even. Keep the change.


The thing that cracks me up is I HAVE BEEN IN THE ONE NINETIES FOR ABOUT SIX WEEKS and all I want is to say "hello 180's- my how you make my butt look good. I can't get my husband's hands off of it!"
Patience, right?


I know. It took a long time to put it on~ it takes a long time to take it off. And I REALLY am not disappointed in my weight, today! HONEST! I just have to laugh & shake my head at how stubbornly I've clung on to the 190's for so long that my knuckles are white.




I did some reflecting, however, and I've thought about some of the hurdles I had to jump over to get to where I am today. I thought about the time I just wanted to get below the 200 mark and it seemed like I would never get there. Once I was under 200 pounds, I just wanted to get away from the 200 pound mark so that I didn't have to keep peeking over my shoulder at it. Not only do I remember buying my first outfit that wasn't in the plus sized section (I can't find the link!) but I remember needing to buy a belt to go with those skinny-girl jeans as they were getting LOOSE!


My point is this: There will come a day (soon, I hope) where I will look back at THIS post and say "I remember when I couldn't get out of the 190's."


It'll pass.

And in the meantime, I'll chill here at "190" for a day or two but then I'm giving my notice & moving on. I think I hear the 180's knocking at my door.....

Rebecca said...

WOW I mean 192! I am definitely not 102!

I am sure the 180's will be here before you know it!

You look awesome!

I'm stuck at 184. It's hard to be patient. I want to move out of the 180's for good.

The hardest won victories are the ones that matter most, and that you'll hold closest. But, man, doesn't it seem to go sooo painfully slow?

I remember stuck in the 190's between last Aug & Sept. Just as I was getting to 189, the scale jumped back up to 192 and it took me two more weeks to get to the 180's. Grrrrr.

Looking good!

Patience is hard. You'll get past it. Our body's have minds of their own ... at least mine does. Keep at it and you'll get there and then past that. :)

You're doing awesome!!! 180 is just a short day trip away, not a long journey at all. Can't wait to see you welcome in the '80's!
