With God All Things Are Possible!

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed , because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

  I feel like I am dreaming! I lost 7.4 pounds yesterday and made it to goal!  I wanted to write this yesterday but I couldn't even get my mind to slow down and stay put long enough.  I am so excited!  I am also scared though.

  People just love to tell me, well this is where the hard part starts.  I am aware of this.  I know they are right.  I know my chances of keeping this weight off are so very, very small.  I know like 98% people gain their weight back.  I know this starts the rest of my life with no rewards or applause but the same tracking and weigh ins.  I know!    I wonder what people want me to say when they say this.  Oh, this isn't going to be easy?  Might as well gain it back and get it over with.     

  I have a few thoughts on this.  First of all, I know I may regain this.  I live in fear of it.  That just means I should enjoy getting to goal while I still can right?  Second, it has taken me well over two years to get here.  That means I do have slightly more practice than a normal person dieting and all I can do is hope this helps me be more prepared for the years to come.  Third, this is why I picked my goal weight  I picked.  I didn't pick one that most women would be excited about.  I still don't have a great body and never will.  I do however feel this is a weight that may help me be able to keep it here.  I can still eat and not have to exercise a ton, yet the doctor is happy with it.  Hopefully that will help.

  Well, I thought this would be a real positive post, but I guess my fears are showing.  I signed into my computer to change my weight and it said you don't want to lose any more weight and added 6 more points to my daily allowance.  That is hard to wrap my mind around.  It is really scary.  

  So that is where I am right now.  Scared/excited.  That sums it all up.  We are going to celebrate at my meeting this Friday so Dan and Dani can be there.  I am bringing my before pic and my big jeans.  It will be fun!

  I need to get to the rec.  I can't think I can stop that now, lol.  Drats!
