GOAL-aversary

Last year on December 8th (which I realize is tomorrow but whatever), I hit my weight loss goal of losing 100 lbs. (45.4 kg.). 

Except I actually didn't.  I expected to.  I thought I would.  I wrote several posts in anticipation of my Wednesday weigh in and then when I got on the scale, I was shy by a few ounces.

So what the hell, I put up the goal posts anyway.  The following week, I actually did hit goal.  A year later, I'm about 15 lbs. lighter than my original goal. 

December 2009 - 280 lbs.

December 2010 - 180 lbs.

Now - 165 lbs.

Such an inspiration and you have always been my model of "everything in moderation." Even during the losing phase I feel that this is something that I have done for 9 months and lost 80 lbs and I figure I can do this for another 9 years, then another 9 more after that if I remember what Amanda says, "Everything is allowed in moderation" This is my life, and thanks to you and your inspirational journey I am able to live happily and much more healthfully every day!

Thank you and Happy Goal-iversary!
