Shock

I did it!  I actually did it.  I reached and went beyond my 10% weight loss goal.  At this Tuesday's weigh in I was down 6 lbs!!!  I am still in shock.  So with that 6 pounds I have officially lost 36 lbs, reached my 10% goal and, most important to me. I am below 300 lbs!  In fact I am at 296.6, my lowest weight (that I am aware of) since high school. 

This was just the kick I needed and one that I hope will stay with me for a very long time.  I've been thinking about HOW I lost 6lbs this week and I think I have figured out a few things:
  1. I had significantly smaller portions last week
  2. I worked out 4 days
  3. The gentle colon cleanse I have been doing has finally started to work
  4. I drank a lot of water and hot lemon water (to help kick out some of the sinus stuff I've had)
  5. Most importantly, I was finally tired of gaining and losing the same 5 lbs since January
I am still struggling with tracking but I'm getting there.  I don't want to jinx anything so I won't wax poetic about how different things are gonna be from now on or how I wont every slip again because, let's face it, this is a journey and there is nothing perfect or sure about a journey.  However that doesn't make it any less amazing or exciting to travel.

I'm sorry... I thought you said six pounds.

Wow... way to rock that scale and kick that plateau in the rear.

This is so exciting! You have worked so hard, and I am so proud of you. I can really tell how much smaller you, and your already-evident beauty is that more obvious now. ;)
