The Magic Number

Today I met with Deb my personal trainer. I usually only weigh when I have my once a month appointment with my Doc, but I am leaving for a cruise this Thursday and I kind of wanted to know where I am before and after the cruise. I am thinking it might be something I do kind of regularly now getting her to weigh me in the middle of the month I guess. Well I am pleased to say that I am now 298 no more 300 baby. I was so freaking excited today. I felt like a kid that just heard the noise of the icecream truck coming around the corner. haha...
Today was a big day for me 40 lbs down. I am so happy with myself. For one of the first times in my life I am finally doing something right. I made this decision because I wanted it for me. I want the whole thing for Gail not for anyone else. It has been kind of strange giving all this me time to me when I am not used to worrying about me at all, but when I have a day like today it just seems so real now and it makes me so happy that I am doing this not anyone else just me.

The Magic Number of the Day is 40!!!!!


  1. Oh I loved 40 pounds down! It was for me, when I could start seeing a little difference and when people started to notice. I also lost a size with that first 40! Congrats on being under 300! No going back now!

  2. congrats on the big 40! wasn't being below 300 such a wonderful thing? i felt like dancing in the street!

  3. That is great news! congradulations!And the least you can weigh yourself the better, props for holding out so long now! I hope you enjoy the cruise. It will be awesome to see new pics of you soon!

  4. I know you're thinking this whole "get control of your life" journey is for you. But, really, it is for everyone who loves you. You are getting control of more than your appearance--you are taking control of your health. You are learning to live a healthy life style which will make you stronger, healthier, happier, and better able to serve and help the people you love.


    We love you,
