This is what I saw when I stepped on the scale this morning. This means I have lost a total of 225 pounds and have hit my goal. I cannot describe what that felt like. I immediately had tears spring into my eyes. It is totally overwhelming. I NEVER EVER envisioned myself being able to lose 100 pounds on my own. Even when I had lost a lot of weight, I still thought that entering the "teens" would not be possible.
I also took my measurements this morning. I remember when a FULL seamstress tape measure of 60 inches - that's 5 freaking feet! - wouldn't fit around my hips. I have a 28" waist and 32" hips.
Now I know that the real work starts now. But today we're having family over to celebrate Marc's father's 94th birthday. I want to have fun and enjoy the moment.
Right now I am almost in a state of disbelief. I never thought that this would hit me so powerfully....
