Simply, thank you!

I don't know if I have ever really truly expressed this here on the blog but I wanted to take this time to just simply say THANK YOU.
If you are reading this, yes you, thank you.
Thank you for supporting me and my journey.
Thank you for standing behind me even when I wanted to give up.
Nobody truly understands this whole "blog thang" unless they do it themselves but it has been extremely rewarding in my personal life.
I have had a lot of successes in a large part to you, my dear readers.

Your words of encouragement and praise are something I don't ever take lightly.
They mean more to me than you will ever know.
I read every single comment and I really truly do try to comment back.
Y'all rock and you are extremely special.

Today is the day.
The day I wanted so badly to reach my goal to be in the 150's for my doctor's appointment.
I am just gonna get real with you here.
I am not going to hit that goal.
I know it.
I am okay with it.
I could easily beat myself up about it but I refuse to let negativity in and ruin a perfectly good day.
I think even though I didn't hit my goal I am roughly down about 15-20 pounds from my last appointment six months ago.
That's better than gaining and that's just how I have to look at it.
I have grown so much as a person in those six months and I know I am so much healthier.
I think my doctor is actually going to be really proud of me for what I have been able to do.
Being proud of myself is something the old me would have NEVER been able to do.
I love myself.
I love where I am at.
Yes, I still have a road ahead of me, hell I will always have a road ahead of me....
But I am closer now than I was six months ago.
Wearing my lucky shoes today and just going to smile because I'm alive.
 I did not hit my goal for the doc today. 
I know it and it's out of my own stupidity but I have learned from it and I'm moving forward.
 I'll be sure to let you all know my results... 
Again thanks for your constant support as I continue on with my journey


  1. You and your doctor's appointment were on my mind this morning while I was getting ready for work. No matter what the number is on the scale today, know that you have made such huge accomplishments in your weight loss and, more importantly, your overall health. You are a constant inspiration to your blog readers and we all love you very much.

  2. As least you are still moving forward in the right direction! And cute shoes. :)

  3. Meh, you look great and you feel even better than you did 6 months ago! That's the important thing!

  4. You rock and you look great! Don't let it get you down! You're doing great!

  5. You have come so far so I am glad that you are ok with not hitting that number. Can you even believe you are so tiny now? Take the time to really recognize how hare you have worked and how far you have come in the past year.

  6. Doll...I was totally thinking of you this morning as I was getting ready. ((((hugs)))) 15-20lbs in 6 months is awesome!! And your whole body is CHANGING! I love that you love yourself, and that you're in a better place...that you're happy and healthy. I know I'm a newbie...but I love your attitude and positive helps push me so I know it does many others. Oh, and THANK YOU for being you... :)

    Now...if your Dr is not proud of you, please switch!!!!!!
