10% Filled with Happiness

I did it! I reached my 10% goal! I have my key chain! I put the keys on it during the meeting :)

I got a little misty when I thought about the last few months. I truly feel like I have accomplished something. I've never tried to lose weight before. I've gone to the gym consistently before, but I have never really changed my eating habits or weighed myself on a regular basis. I had no idea what I weighed before I went to my first Weight Watchers meeting. I had been weighed at the doctor's office every year or so, but after I hit 200 lbs. I stopped listening to the numbers.

This has been such a great experience, and I feel so lucky to have this blogging community and be able to visit your blogs and see how well you are all doing and get inspired. And I love it when you visit me! :)

I have another goal coming soon, I'm 0.8 lbs. away from 200 lbs.! I never thought I get so excited about weighing 200 lbs., but I am. It means I can really do this, that its working and that I'm going to be able to sustain my weight loss. I don't think the next 60 lbs. are going to be easy, but if they are anything like the last 23 lbs., I'm sure its going to be an adventure I'm going to look back on fondly in the future.

Congratulations!!! Doesn't it feel good to reach the 10% goal! That key chain symobises all the hard work you have put in to reach where you are now. I can't wait to make it to the 20% loss... although there are no gifts for that, my WW leader said she would be giving me a little something special... Keep on going! :)

wow! what a great accomplishment!!!!! you're doing so well. it is amazing, isn't it? to realize that the weight WILL come off when forever it seemed so permanent.

at my top weight i simply could not imagine myself weighing any less. it was as if i were carved from stone and not possible to change.

i am so happy for you!!!!!!

Wow! Congrats! Pretty soon you're going to be in One-derland....

I'm very proud of you Trixie.

Also, have you been informed that the Next 10 Challenge is not in Phase 1, but Phase 0? The holidays are killing a number of us....

TrixieBelden said...

Amanda Jane - I think it's great your leader is going to give you something for 20%! I bought myself a CD to celebrate. For the next two weeks my goal is to not gain anything back!

BigAssBelle - It is hard to imagine myself smaller. I don't feel like I look any different, but I feel different - which is amazing!

Amazon Alanna - Thanks for the support and thanks for the update on Phase 0!

I hope you had a good Christmas too!

It won't be long until you're below 200 too.

I have no doubt that you're going to reach your goal based on what I've read. You are determined, you've made it a priority, and nothing can stop you.
