Weigh In Week 15

I went into this week determined to take good care of me and Mr. Goat and Little Goat.  It was surgery week, a BIG deal, and I wanted to navigate it well.  I wanted to make good choices and stay on track.  I wanted to prove to myself that I could handle this stress without getting off track.  I did.  This week:

- 7.6 Pounds
 40 lbs Lost to Date!!
I am now UNDER 300 lbs!!!

I think this proves it pretty definitively.  I am a little in shock.  I hoped to lose something, or hoped to lose the 3 lbs that I had gained last week.  Instead I blew both of those out of the water.  And it feels great.  It feels great to be in the 200s again.  It feels great to have lost 40lbs.  It feels great to have proven to myself that I can be in stressful situation and still take control of my eating.  It feels great that Mr. Goat goes home in a few hours and we can keep on doing this together.  Today feels great.


I'm not on my work computer so I won't share a picture of sugar with how much I've lost (8 5lb bags of sugar) but here is a comparison:  I have lost more weight than my 3' 2" toddler weighs.  He came in at 39 lbs at his 3 year check in last in March.  I've lost this 3 foot person from my frame.




It feels great to see a 2 in the front of my weight.  If feels good to be awaiting Mr. Goat's discharge instructions.  It feels so good.

I'm a little teary! What a great incentive mark. (At least I know I do better when I'm really losing than when I'm hovering and plateauing). Congratulations! (and I'll be praying for you and Mr. Goat over the next months.)
