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!"
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."
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.....
