Insert Happy Dance Here (Weigh In)

FOLKS!!!!! The day is here. On this Tuesday morning, one day shy of exactly 8 months since I began this journey of battling emotional eating, I have reached a very exciting milestone...my GOAL WEIGHT!!!!!

Starting Weight: 168

Today's Weight: 130

Total lost: 38 lbs

I can't even believe it's here!!! I weighed in Friday, and rechecked today (for accuracy and continuity) and sure enough, I legitimately weigh 130. I'll be writing another post on this soon, because for now, I have to get my buns in gear because we are leaving for Grandma's house for Thanksgiving...but I do have some goals for the long holiday weekend.

#1) Run 2 days that I am out there. This will most likely be Thanksgiving morning and Saturday morning.

#2) Bring alternative snack bag (already packed) on trip to help carb cravings. My folks typically have good fruit and veggie snack choices, but I packed some Fiber One bars and Curves bars for those must have carbs moments.

#3) Get full on blessings, not dressing this year. I don't need to eat it like there won't be leftovers!!!! I can enjoy a couple of small turkey meals instead of one that makes me feel sick afterwards. I want to be focused on the amazing people in my life instead of what dish they'll be cooking.

#4) Take a nap on the drive over today. I have not had enough sleep the last two days!

Alrighty, off to pack I go!

I am so incredibly excited for you!

You have worked hard and deserve every bit of the blessings you have gained from this experience. Which, by the way, have been so many more than just weight loss and a healthier body.

Thanks for continuing to be an inspiration to me in so many aspects of your life.

And can I tell you that you look amazing?!?! Way to go skinny, hot mom.

YAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY! Congratulations!!!! *doing happy dance* What a great idea to blog out your plans for the holiday too. Much easier to stick to when they're not just in your head. GREAT idea. :-P

I'm so glad I found you ladies' blog via Tales today - I haven't been by before, but I'll be adding you to my blog roll so I can come BACK!

CONGRATS! CONGRATS! CONGRATS! Great work! I hope in 8 months I can say the same thing. Although I have a lot more weight to lose than you lost. The scale wasn't so good to me today-well actually considering how uncommited I have been this week it was very generous to not show a gain!

have a great thanksgiving!
