It finally happened! I reached my goal weight! After breaking the 70 lb mark back in August and wavering back and forth about 5 lbs since then, I officially reached goal today! I have actually weighed under 125 a few other days through the last few months, but never on weigh in day! So it’s finally official!
And amazingly enough I so didn’t think it would happen now! I just got back from a trip to California (more details on that to come later!), where I didn’t count points, ate some out of control meals, didn’t run, and still managed to lose 0.6 lbs while I was there. I clearly didn’t realize how much walking around I did and how little I really did eat at the not-so-out-of-control meals! I did however, totally buckle down the last few days, and well, the proof is in the pudding… or make that in not eating the pudding! ‘Cause here I am!
I even went to my annual physical this morning, and according to their highest weight on record for me since 2006, I’ve lost 80 lbs! Nothing like your doctor being proud of you! She’s not saying you are going to have a heart attack by the time you are 50 anymore! Although, if she had never said it, I may not have gotten serious about this, so I am grateful!
And, I ran my first 5K last week at my fastest pace yet! In fact, the last few weeks have been the most amazing weeks of my life, which is also the reason why I have been too busy to post updates!, but I’ll save all of that for some future posts. For now, I just want to bask in the glory of my 75 lb star and that big ol’ GOAL star! Ironic that I should call it “big” when I am now so “small!”
I seriously cannot believe I am here! And I beat my deadline of December 7th! Which I suppose is good since Thanksgiving will likely kick my butt next week! Next goal… to nail this maintenance thing!!!

And if you’re wondering, it’s not actually week 48 on Weight Watchers, it’s just week 48 of giving weekly updates since re-committing myself to the program.
