Welcome to the land of DUH.

If you've been reading my blog, you know I weigh in daily. (If you haven't, here's the background on that.) Well, when I stepped on the scale this morning, I was surprised to see a number below 135.


I guess it's silly that I found today's number surprising. My weight has been varying slightly, up and down, like it always does. And like it always does when I'm on plan, it generally trends downwards. (No, I don't always lose, but I always lose over time. When I'm on plan, that is.) I've been up and down near 135-136 for a while, so it should be no surprise that I got below 135, right?

But it was a surprise. It was a pleasant shock to the system to see that number. I don't think it had hit me before. I'm really close to goal!

I'm going to be on maintenance soon!

Good for you! It must feel nice to see yourself so close to goal again. Yay you!

I'm catching up on my blog reading today and just wanted to comment on your post yesterday... the WW meetings serve a purpose. If you find yourself going UP instead of down, get thee back to a meeting until things turn around. Don't wait until you regain all your weight.

Until then, keep doing what you're doing. It's obivously working!

I am so happy for you!! I cannot wait to be at my goal either and finally hit maintenance.

Is that a light at the end of the tunnel?

Hanlie said...

Wow, that is excellent news. I see that maintaining is where you struggled in the past, so I'm trusting that your exercise program will keep you on track this time!

Well done!

Wow you are just a smidgen away from your goal.

This is exciting!! Who needs TV when we can all read about our blogging buddies reaching their goals and cheer them on.

Thank you for your words. When I finish this "break", I will think about them!

I am so happy for you. I am like that- on plan and the scale goes dowwwnnn. It's great.

I was having some privacy issues, so I changed my url- so don't lose me!
