Today was a big milestone for me! This morning, when I stepped on the scales, I weighed 132. Now, that’s still too large a number for someone who's barely over 5′1″, so it hardly seems like a happy day — except that it was not so very long ago that I was at my highest weight of 222 lbs. Yes, 90 lbs. lost, melted away, burned up into ash and energy, and gone away for good!
I am not yet to my goal, so I still have some of my weight loss journey yet to go, but I know I will make it. The past 90 lbs. of loss seemed hard-fought and hard-won at times, and some days were a battle. Yet, looking back over these past months of losing weight, it seems the time has flown. It was worth every moment of effort to slip on and easily zip up the slacks that were packed away in my “Too Small” box for years. Sweet victory!
