breaking through

see that little ticker on the right??  ----------------->

I finally busted through the plateau and now have less than 10lbs to go before my big goal weight.  I truly cannot believe it!  I set my "goal weight" at the highest end of my height's healthy range according to ww but I wouldn't mind losing another 15 lbs after that.  But hey, if all I lose is my goal...losing 50lbs ain't too shabby.

In the last month or so, I would say people definitely started noticing the weight loss more.  Some co-workers I don't see on a regular basis even have told me that they hardly recognize me. It is still strange to me, because although I was overweight, I never thought of myself as "fat".  And looking at myself today, even several sizes smaller, I still think I look me!  Weird, I know?  Perhaps at goal weight I will take some pics to compare from start to goal!

In an effort to celebrate me finally reaching the 40lb are a couple of every day items that weigh 40lbs:
1) Zachary.  Dang, he is heavy these days to carry around.  That has definitely given me perspective to think I was carrying around that much extra weight on my body!

2) a 5-gallon bottle of water 

3) According the American Kennel Society, a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier!

4) And speaking of dogs....a big old 40lb bag of dog food!
5) Two Tires
So there you have it.  Losing 4.4lbs this week gave me the push and encouragement I needed...I WILL REACH MY GOAL! :)
