I DID IT!!!!

WOW....I did it, I made it to my goal!!! Weighed in at 159.8! I am just beyond words at the moment....

I was actually nervous earlier because I was at the gynecologist earlier and saw 161.4, but it was right after lunch and I wasnt wearing my usual weigh in clothes. Plus it obviously isnt my scale. I felt happy enough that the doctor commended me on my weight loss..but I am happier that it wasnt my true weight.

I know its just a number, and I know I want to lose another 9 pounds, but right now, I can just feel great that I finally accomplished this. 47 weeks ago I started this (last august), and in that time I have lost 48 pounds. That is about a pound a week. I started at a size 20 and now fit into a size 12.

Whats even better? My BMI is in the NORMAL range! I am no longer considered overweight. My % of body fat is currently at 33%, which is also in the normal range!

Its hard for me to even put into words what kind of journey this has been just to get to this moment. But I can say without a doubt that it is worth it. And it is totally possible if you work hard and never give up.
