Wow- What a loss

Let's just say I was expecting a loss but not such a big one. Of course I spent the whole day prior hugging the porcelain god and couldn't even keep down any water. So I guess I should have been surprised when I saw the 6 lb weight loss this morning. I contemplated whether or not turn in that loss for the challenge since next week I am sure that I will be up, but alas I wanted to see my name up near the top of the list. Even if it is only for a time. Let me just tell you how beautiful that number on the scale was this morning. I haven't seen that number in quite awhile, atleast 8-9 months. Since I was home alone today I took some time to take my body measurements and look at my past measurements. I was struck by how long I have been overweight. I have been 30-60 lbs over my ideal weight for the last 9 years. I didn't realize it had been that long since I had been at my ideal weight. It was a real eye opener. I always say I want to lose weight. The scale will go down a few pounds....I will get comfortable... the scale will go up a few more... and so my weight has been climbing for the last 10 years. I have had a few spots of weight loss but nothing major. I want things to be different this time. I have been so inspired by so many people this year. I am hoping that their accomplishments will motivate me to make a difference. I believe that this month long weight loss challenge is helping me start to reach my goal of being a thinner, healthier me!

So sorry you were sick this weekend...and that I didn't realize you were home! Fun seeing a good number on the scale, no matter what caused it. LOL.

We'll work our butts this weekend, don't think going out of town means you get to slack off. Your mom will keep you on track!

And we can have a challenge every month, if that's what it takes. Its great having friends trying to reach the same goal.
