What a wonderful Surprise!
Stepped on the scale this morning expecting to see 300 and guess what I saw? 299.8. Now, if you round that you get 300, but there is no rounding today buddy! I'm in the 200's!!! YAAAAAA.... for the first time in about 10 years or so. I was upper 200's in high school so there it is! Yippee! Singing Pharrell's "Happy"...and all that other good feeling stuff.

Now, let's talk about 2 things....where I've been and where I'm going. I was 406lbs about 2 years ago. I lost 30 something to get down to 370lbs and then I became pregnant with my second son, gained it all back and some more, and ended at 412lbs. Ready to continue what I started I had my baby and went right back into grind mode after recovery in June 2013. Since then I have lost 113lbs to be where I am today. It's been about 11 months and I can tell you I am so proud of myself. I know I can do anything I put my mind to, but this challenge is a DOOZY let me tell you. I love food with a passion. Cheese, check. So my journey has not ever been about restricting myself of the foods I love, but reducing them drastically. That way I can still down me some macaroni and cheese or some Boston Baked Beans candy (YUM!) but know that I am not overdoing. I will not gain from these decisions. I am making smart, thought out decisions about what I plan to eat today. If I want more, I'll eat it tomorrow...or the next day...or the next day...because life does continue past today. Yes that home-made, momma put her foot in it, cheese is dripping macaroni and cheese may look like it will disappear if you do not demolish it right now...but it won't. It will still be here tomorrow. So, rest easy knowing that you tasted it, it tasted amazing, and you will still lose weight after eating it!

Now, for the more daunting part.....
I have 119lbs to go to get to my goal (not permanent, but a good look) of 180lbs. I have more to lose than I have lost so far. I have another century to climb down before I even get there. However, the game plan doesn't change much for the next phase. Exercising as much as I can Monday through Friday and eating well below my BMR enjoying healthy foods as well as unhealthy foods haha. I will enjoy it all and still lose! (mostly healthy though I promise ;) )

Til the next bit of good news....Have an AMAZING DAY!

Congratulations! Keeping the momentum is so important when your journey is long. You have done an amazing job and I'm right with you on not denying yourself! I too had to convince myself that if the item I wanted didn't fit into my eating today, then I could always plan for it another day.
