Great week!! Great Loss!!

70 POUNDS GONE BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm absoulutely THRILLED with the loss this week!! 3 POUNDS!!! I now weigh 188lbs!!! 188lbs!!! I am out of the 190's!! I also hit another reward level, another milestone!! I will be planning a weekend getaway (more details to follow). 188!! I can't believe it.

Where has the time gone??? Although my "deadline" (for lack of a better word) is fast appoaching, I WILL definitely continue on this journey!! This journey will be for life and I am looking forward to it....I can't and I WILL NOT go back. I am starting to think of my new goals, new objectives because come Dec 10, 2009, I want to ensure that I am prepared and that I have planned for the next phase of this journey - the lifelong phase, which I believe will be the most difficult of all. To be honest, I don't see how it will be really different from what I'm doing currently.

My plan is just to continue on, striking that balance with everyday life and my new lifestyle. That is the reason it was so important for me continue with my life throughout this past year on this journey. I did not want to put my life on "hold" while I was on this journey. I have made quite a few sacrifices over the past while and I realize that those sacrifices were warranted, however I did enjoy my life and friends and events, special occasions etc. I didn't go nuts and I think that has helped me to keep my sanity and move forward and that will help me as I continue on to the next phase. This is one of the things that has worked for me and works for me - it may not work for everyone.

Until next time....
