Weigh-In For Week 24

I weighed in at an even 174 this morning. I’m happy with that!

I have exactly eight more pounds to lose before I hit the mark of having lost 100 pounds from my highest weight. This was back in mid-April of 2009 and I am confident that I will be seeing 166 sometime in February, so I will have done all that in less than a year. I am feeling pretty excited about this upcoming event!

I think that, for me, one of the keys to my weight loss success has been recognizing the smaller triumphs as I pass by the littler milestones. They allow me to avoid being overwhelmed by concentrating on a far off goal, and rather give me a chance to feel victorious – and, thus, to remain motivated – along the way. It’s important though to avoid the complacency that could potentially come with being too pleased with the progress being made. Ultimately, I don’t want to say that I have lost 100 pounds; I want to know that I met my end goal. However, I am glad that I am enjoying the ride along the way to my final destination!
