It moved! It moved!!!

That's RIGHT! The scale moved! YIPEE!!! I've got to say that the fact that the scale moved this morning (even though it was only one pound) was the bright spot in my day. The funny thing is that when I saw that the scale had moved, I was so excited that it didn't even occur to me that I had hit another "milestone" moment. It wasn't until I was going around updating my tickers that it hit me. Yes Sir! I have OFFICIALLY lost 90 lbs! Needless to say, that brightened my day even more.

I must admit, I have worked very, very hard for that pound! I successfully made it to the gym AND through full workouts 3 times last week, not including the Saturday afternoon roller skating, and Sunday afternoon softball tossing. I have also increased my water consumption as well as the protein consumption. Though, I still need to get more of that protein in! That has to be the toughest part of this journey for me! Oh yeah, and the carbs. Time for them to go. I let some bad stuff slip in and now I'm trying to cast those Carb demons out of my life!!

Thank you so much for your support, suggestions, and ideas. It's so much easier to NOT get discouraged when you know that there are people out there that have experienced the same thing and can offer suggestions as far as what they do. I can't tell you how much the "blogging" community contributes to my success! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Now, if I can make it through a torturous day at work, I should have a good evening. I have another session with little Micah, my personal trainer. I'm hoping he'll provide me with some more great tips and give me some good exercises to firm the jiggle. Here's hoping we all have an incredible week!

Good on you Heather...every pound counts. Congratulations on hitting a milestone...I am raising my invisible pint of Harp (yes at 9:47 am, what of it?) to you as a cheers and to many, many more milestones! Cheers Heather :)

I'll take that Harp - no matter what the time - and I will celebrate cheers to you as well! Thank you for being so excited with me. I'm only 10 away from another milestone - and I'm all about celebrating that one too!

Your support means a lot to me! Thank you!

YEAH Heather - that's fantastic! I've gained back some of what I lost last week... what's with the yo yo?! AHHHHH!

Oh no Kim! You can't have hit the yo yo! Maybe our bodies are just trying to get us to appreciate the little things. If we don't appreciate the small amounts we do lose, maybe it "gets us back" by adding them back on the next week? Either way, it stinks! Keep doing what you're doing (you're doing great) and I'm certain it will pay off!!!!
