The light is getting closer...

the one at the end of this weight-loss tunnel! I lost another 3.2 pounds this week, for a total of 143.4 pounds gone. The cool thing is that I now have less than 100 to reach my goal -- 99.6, but that's not 100.0!!!!

And this has been one of those weeks when normally, I'd hang on to the weight because of stress. It's been busy and crazy and .... well, normally that's a small gain or loss. I'm glad it's not that way this week.

And the cool thing is that I can go back to my 20-year high school reunion weighing LESS than I did at graduation. There aren't many people out there who can say that. Granted, it's not by much, but it is less.

Another stick of butter...

I lost 0.2 pounds this week. It's a first .... first time I went to Savannah and didn't lose a massive amount of weight. No, but I had a great time!

Every 0.2 pounds is roughly another stick of butter gone from my body. I will take it. Can you imagine what even that little amount of weight looks like on your body? I can, and that's why I'm glad for that.

I lost another point this week. The 0.2 was just enough to put me over, AND the fact that in 5 days, I'll turn 38 -- the dividing line on the points quiz between points for age. Yep .... 21-37 and 38-(whatever). Does one year make all that much difference? Apparently so.

So this week, I plug along. More walking for Maddox (who is also on a weight control program -- poor baby!) and me too. I'm excited about it!

I love round numbers

Especially when they are caused by a weight loss!!! I lost another 1.6 pounds this week, for a total of 140 even. I am so happy!

I'm taking a weekend vacation to see my friends in Savannah. I am truly looking forward to the "west and wewaxation" (hahahahahahahahaha). And considering I usually lose big on the weeks that I visit them..... (heh heh heh). No, seriously, I am truly looking forward to spending time with people whom I love.

I haven't seen them in about a year. This will be great!!!

Kind of cool....

I had a VERY slight gain this week -- 0.2 pounds. For me, that's maintenance. There are weeks like that, and you just keep plowing on.

On the positive, I got a lot of compliments this week from many different sources. One night, I was walking Maddox and ran into someone from high school. He was a year ahead of me, dated one of my classmates, and later married someone I worked with. After the "Hey how are you?" (during which I was walking beside a parked vehicle), he said, "Whoa! Have you lost a ton of weight!" (and he's right ... it seems like I have). Then the next night at WW, one of the people who isn't part of our regular meeting could hardly believe my totals. Luckily, I had a before picture I could show to prove it! And then Friday night, my brother told me about a friend of his that said, "Yeah, I saw Annette walking the dog. Man, has she lost weight!" (and the weird thing is, I might have met this person once, and I don't remember that).

So I'm hardly disappointed by a minute gain. That's just fuel for the fire.

Oh yeah ... I nearly forgot!

Race for the Cure was this past Saturday. On my main blog, I wrote a more detailed entry about the event. All said, it was a fabulous experience and I can't wait for next year!!!
