Friends Goals Milestones Weigh-In weight loss Weight Watchers

Five Pounds More

I’m only five pounds away from losing my first 100 pounds…and I celebrated tonight by dancing the night away with my ladies. πŸ™‚ Several of us ate dinner at the pub then watched a super fun band, The Amish Outlaws, perform. They were just as awesome this time! πŸ™‚

(My workout buddy and friend, Carol.)

I’m ready to kick it into high(er) gear because I’m ready to look myself in the mirror and know that I’ve lost 100 pounds. It’s so close I can taste it. πŸ˜‰ And I’d rather have that than any amount of junk food.

While dancing tonight, a stupid, drink woman dug her stiletto into the top of the foot that I broke last year. It hurts, and it must feel better by tomorrow because Saturday is my first 5k! πŸ™‚ It’s frustrating because it’s swollen and blue, but I’m also reminded of just how far I’ve come since my foot broke last year.

(Check out the ice pack my friends made for me. It’s nice to be surrounded by Lady McGyver types. LOL)

I’m a new person who is achieving big goals. I feel better. I look better. And my energy level is astounding. I actually jumped a lot tonight. Seriously…it appears I can do that now.

(Fomerly Amish, Ezekiel the bass player, saw me trying to take a pic of him as he played so he
came down mid-song and posed with me. He’s super cute!)

It’s a happy night….change has come. And I cannot wait to see and feel the changes that come with losing the next 95 pounds.

    Ok I was reading your blog after the FMM and saw this. How long did it take for you to recouperate from a broken foot? I had a really bad bad sprang in my ankle almost a month ago and I am still having discomfort…and guilt from not working out. and a broken foot is worse then a sprang so I thought I would ask. The dr says it just needs to heal.
