    Someone Somewhere Is Smiling On Me

    This weekend was very relaxing for me. It was a much needed respite from all the chaos that is my life. Imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning to find that I had lost 5 pounds (I was up just a smidge from my lowest). This puts me 1 pound below my original goal for a total loss of 205 pounds, having started at 384 pounds. Whoa, that is even incredible for me to hear.



    My new goal is to lose 15 pounds more. I'm not sure how attainable that is, but I'm going to work at it. Considering that a surgeon guesses that 20-25 pounds of me may be extra skin, I am close to being at a normal weight. I've never been normal about anything I've done. Almost normal feels gooooooooooood!!!!!!

    Oh isn't it wonderful to hits goals. Congratulations. But... you normal? Ha ha ha hahahahah hehehehehe ... I mean, how nice.

    This is so incredible. I am very happy for you hitting your goal. It is a shame you could not get rid of the extra skin but maybe it is just a little reminder where you where so you never think about heading there again, never ever. It is easy to do, I know.

    But for now, time to CeLeBrAtE!

    That is just super news, Jenn. I'm really delighted for you. I'm still holding fast - I'm hoping after this hernia gets repaired the weight will go down a bit. I'm on restricted movement until surgery. :(
