A Journey to Thin: My Birthday Weigh In

My Birthday Weigh In

I did it! I did it! Ok, here’s the thing. I got up this morning and weighed in at 248.4. That’s right, .4 from my goal! I was like nuh-uh I am not taking that, you dirty scale! So I went for a nice long walk, as for some reason I lose weight when I do that. I was like, come on, .4? That’s not even right. I can change that THIS morning. So when I hopped on the scale post walk, I weighed in at 247. That’s right, a 1.4 lb. difference. How did that happen? I have no clue. Maybe some water weight. But I stepped on the scale about 10 times to make sure it was right, and sure enough! Is that cheating? I’m going to say no and that I met my 40 lb goal! It's actually 41 lbs. total. That’s a 3.6 lb. loss this week! I felt like I was in control this week, so I was glad to see that loss!

Meeting my 40 lb. goal means I have accomplished the goal I have been working FOREVER to get to. MY COACH PURSE FROM MY HUBBY!!!

Coach Purse I absolutely love this purse and I’m thrilled to finally get it!

I took the day off today to just take it easy. I’m going to clean the house and work on homework. I came downstairs this morning to find this from my hubby:

LivingRoom 001A dozen beautiful roses, a $15 iTunes gift card, Lindt truffles, and a birthday card. We write notes to each other on paper towels, napkins, whatever, so that’s what’s in the front. haha :) How cute!! He’s already given me a book, and 2 new WW food and dining out books. He said he has a couple more gifts for me tonight. I’m spoiled. Can’t wait to download some new songs on iTunes!

By the way, I turned 24 today. I feel so inspired today as I am changing my life. I’ve been thinking about what I will look like next year. I’d love to be another 40 lbs. lighter!
