My Progress

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Thanks!

Not gonna make a long one today, but I will mention that in spite of my earlier transgressions this week, I've managed to pull yet another great loss at this morning's weigh-in. I definitely wasn't expecting to hit another round number, but I got it on the nose with a 3.2 loss that brought me to exactly 80 lost so far. When it was announced at the meeting, my leader asked me how I handle my emotional triggers for eating. I couldn't help but plug our weight loss community. I really feel like all the posts I make about my struggles are cathartic, and the honesty and sense of accountability I have to yall helps me stay the course. On the other hand, reading all yalls posts about similar struggles and successes give me a sense of camaraderie that constantly reminds me I am not alone in all this, and I never will be.

So this is my official thank you to all my readers, especially to Brandi, Matt, twinkelydots, LTer4ever, CJ, Karen, Jeff, Carlos, Tony, MizFit and everyone else that leaves a comment. Your accolades, support and encouragement mean more to me than I could ever express.

Progress so far: 80 pounds.
