Default Small Victory This Morning

When I started my weight loss journey in early January I weighed in at 261. Every morning I got up and stood on the scale and read the digital display. Slowly but surely the pounds ticked off. This morning I weighed in at 229.4 and it was a real sense of accomplishment to see two consecutive 2's as opposed to a 23x, 24x, 25x or a 26x. Feels good to enter a new strata!

Default Very Nice!

Man don't you love a morning readout like that? 32 pounds in 2 months is absolutely amazing! I myself hit a new strata today as well, finally crossed from above 200 to 199.1!!! And let me just say it was a long time in coming! I've been hovering at 200-201 for several days, like I might be stuck there FOREVER!

Crossing the 200lb barrier must have been awesome. Really cool!

Good Job....watching the numbers change can make you feel like you are accomplishing something.

Good Job

I am SO looking forward to breaking the 200 mark.....14 more to go, it has been about 5 years since I was below the "Clydesdale" mark.

I'm hoping one day to post that I have passed the 150 mark--long long way to go yet. But your post makes me feel I can get there. Thanks.
