Weight Loss Ticker

About Me

TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

I am skipping 10 Things Thursday today because I am officially claiming my overall big goal.  I have been bouncing back and forth between 176 and 173 for about 1 week.  Today is the second day the scale has been consistent at 173.9.  My original goal was 175. 

When I first was banded, 175 felt like a pipe dream.  I did not believe that I would get here this quickly.  But, as I have said before, this is not where I need to stop.  Therefore, I am creating a new weight loss ticker for every 10 lbs. after 175.  Somewhere around 155-160 will be perfect for me...or so I think.

One thing that I have learned along my journey is that it is good to be flexible.  I really believe that is why I need to reevaluate my goals.  I will know when the number is right for me.

Anyway, I took a picture just to have concrete evidence of the number that my scale said today.

Usually I am full of funny comments,  but not today.  Today is kind of sacred for me.  Sacred and surreal.


  1. I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU (yes, I'm screaming that)!!!!!

    You have just jumped a HUGE hurdle. I know that you want to lose some more but just to be able to say that you hit your original goal is beyond amazing!!!
