Monday Morning Weigh-In and a New Goal!

Well today is weigh in day and after gaining some ounces last week, I was determined to lose something this week. I not only lost, but I reached my first goal of getting under 300 pounds!!! I weighed in at 299.2 today! Last week I weighed 302.4, so I lost 3.2 pounds! I could not be happier! I reached my first goal. So, now I need to set another goal. I thought about 250, but I think I would really get frustrated with that, so my new goal is to get below 270, that is like about the same amount that I did in this first goal, so I really think it will be a good goal for me. I can't remember weighing 270 pounds. I think probably I weighed that in college, but that was over 10 years ago so for me that would be wonderful. My WW Points also go to 31 points now. That scale right now looks pretty good to me, but I know I got a long road ahead of me! Baby steps are going to get me there!!! Thanks to all of you for being there for me! I really think that the support from this blog has truly helped me.

Lorie, that is so incredible for you! It is such an awesome feeling when we reach our goals. You are so smart too to be setting realistic goals for yourself! I think a lot of us get ourselves into the dumps with depression because we have these expectations that are honestly made in the best interest of ourselves, but we dont give ourselves enough time to accomplish the goal! I agree with you about the blogging helping, this experience has made us all better I think. Keep up the great work Lorie!!
