HYC - check in

My official WI is tomorrow but today the scale told me that I am at a weight I have not seen since I graduated high school 14 years ago! And I am 50 pounds lighter than my heaviest weight 7 months ago. My DH and I were just discussing this milestone and he commented that I finally seem happy in my own skin. I have always been a happy person but consciously or sub-consciously my weight has prevented me from doing many things over the years, and from being able to be completely relaxed and myself in certain situations. I still have a long way to go and if my confidence is this high now I can only imagine what it will be like when I reach my goal weight.

It is time to set some new goals for the next few months:

I would like to reach my 50lb lost at weight watchers by September
I would like to reach onederland by Christmas (that is about 1.2 lbs a week)
I would like to complete the C25K by Christmas

Goals for the next year:
Reach 175lbs by 1 year ww anniversary (Feb 20, 2009)
Complete the mini Tri-athalon in May 2009 (swim 1km - bike 20km - run 5km)
100 lbs lost by April 2009
I really want to thank everyone who reads this blog and especially those who comment regularly. This forum has been a huge part of my success.. a safe place to confess, confide and celebrate with people who really understand what a challenge this can be. Thank you!!!!!!

Go you, that is GREAT!!! It's amazing what getting healthier does for our esteem. I've not lost as much, but I am so much more active now than I was before. And my hubby can see the change too. :)

Great new goals, can't wait to watch you reach them!
