5 pounds till goal!

Yes you heard me right... 5 pounds until I reach my goal! Wow that feels great to say. Weighed in this evening at 165.6. I had a great weekend and I guess my eating right and exercise paid off because I saw a nice loss.

Its hard because I really still dont SEE this. Like really see that I am this close to my goal. Physically I still see an overweight girl. Sometimes I think I look the same as 42 pounds ago. I know that isnt true at all, but that is the part I am struggling with. I dont want to make this a downer entry at all; I was just writing what was on my mind. Really, I am just thrilled to know that in 2 months, I should be at my goal.

Wow! Only 5 more pounds to go! That is fantastic!

I think it's normal that it hasn't sunk in that your body has changed so much since losing all this weight. It seems like it takes our minds awhile to catch up with our bodies. There's GOT to be a book out there that deals with that. There has to be! lol

That's awesome, Heather!! Look at some old pics of yourself and then check yourself out in the mirror. I guarantee you'll see a difference! :)

Accepting your success is part of the change, so of course you should blog it!

Congrats on moving so close to your goal! You've put in so much effort and heart into it, and you deserve to rejoice in every moment of your success!

Wow, 5 lbs!!! How that must feel. I can't wait till I'm there too. You look great by the way!

Can't wait to celebrate with you!

You'll get there in no time! That is so cool!

The biggest battle is in the mind. We are what we think... I used to think I was fat before I was and it became my truth. By all means work on your self-image and self-esteem, or you will sabotage yourself. And blog about it, even though it may be painful!

You have worked so hard for this. It's worth going the extra mile!

FANTASTIC. You should be very proud. Like chubby said, it takes a while before you actually SEE the real you and acknowledge it in the mirror. You're doing so great.

I am so proud of you! I found your blog about a week ago and found it hard to "put down" til I finished. You are a true inspiration to me. I don't recall how I stumbled upon your blog, but you are the reason that I found and joined the Healthy You Challenge. Way to go!
