Looking Great in 2008 Week 26

I finally made it!! Weighed in at 169.4! That is .6 down from Monday, and I am finally in my much coveted 60s again. And Im staying here! Last time was way too brief, and I was barely there (169.8).

For the Tales from the Scales Challenge (which is apparently still going on when I thought it was over 2 weeks ago), I am down 1.8 and no longer in the 70s!

I have 2 pounds to go until I reach 40 pounds lost, and 9 pounds until I reach my goal. I cant believe it...NINE! That is all that is in my way. Lets just hope I can get through these nine a lot faster than it took me to get into the 60s (which was about 6 weeks).

Hooray! Congrats on getting back to the 60's. My stays in the 80's seem to be fleeting at the moment, but I'll get there for good soon. ;-)

Yay you! You can lose those last pounds--you know you can.

Unsolicited advice coming up! So take it with a grain of salt--the last pounds are WAY HARDER than the rest of them. Do not, I repeat, do not beat yourself up if it takes a while to get these last 9 off. Keep thinking about how far you have come and how great you look. And be careful about getting frustrated if these last pounds don't come off as fast as you want them to. I started feeling like a failure in January after maintaining a 55 pound loss for 3 months, because I couldn't get to goal. I said, crap that, and decided to just maintain a while longer. So for 6 months, I've kept off 55 pounds, and I feel GOOD instead of feeling like I failed because the last 7 pounds are still with me. Now, finally, I also feel like I'm ready to tackle these last pounds, too.

BUT, that's me. Doesn't have to be you AT ALL. Just wanted to share in case you hit the same wall I did. =)
