Today I officially hit my goal weight! How does it feel? I feel FREAKING AWESOME!
In many ways it feels like yesterday since I started Weight Watchers online, but in other ways, it seems like that last 5lbs took forever!
What do I do now? I need to figure out what the world of maintenance looks like. This is pretty exciting for me, hitting goal was something that I felt strongly about even though I knew it didn’t really make a huge difference once I was within the last couple pounds of hitting 174lbs, but it does mean I have completed that task I set out for myself. I haven’t weighed 174lbs since probably grade 10. I don’t know how many of you all weigh what you weighed in high school but for me, it was the unthinkable dream 2 years ago. Not in a million years would I have ever thought I could wear my old grad dress (if I still had it), such a crazy thought! In fact, when I started Weight Watchers online I had given myself a goal of 200lbs because weighing even 200lbs was unthinkable, never mind below that.
I haven’t decided if I will attend a meeting to make this official for Weight Watchers. I have done this all online and to be honest going to meetings has created a funky reaction for me. It’s funny how some people, probably most people, need the meetings to help them stay on track. I just started attending Weight Watcher meetings in October so I can get my lifetime membership but the commitment has made me miserable so I will think on it. I won’t say never because getting lifetime would be great but for today this is enough for me.
I haven’t decided how I will mark this day. Do I celebrate or do I keep business as usually. I feel like I need to mark this day in some way but I don’t know how. I am sure something will come to mind once I have some time to really grasp what I have accomplished! Yeah me!
Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement along the way. If it wasn’t for all my friends and family in my life and on social media, I wouldn’t have been as motivated to continue. It was because of you all that I started my blog which has really helped me stay focused on the task at hand. This really was a group effort! Thanks so much!
