More weight gone!

179.6! What is up? Nope, I'll take the drop in weight anyway I can get it! It's just so odd. TO about 4-5 days ago to be sitting staring 187.8 in the face....and now to be looking at 179.6!!! AMAZING! I'm working to try to keep my weight under that 180 mark! I'm nervous about it. BUT I refuse to mess it up by doing something stupid...not if I can help it! :-)

A friend and I were talking this morning via email. She remarked on my exercise. (I had mentioned that I had gotten a ride out of the way early this morning....this morning twas a shorter ride at 7.47 miles...yesterday was longer..and she was commenting on both). She was like, 100 pounds ago would you have ever thought you would be doing this. I had to answer and say, "yes, I was still somewhat active" (thank goodness I never let myself go that far). BUT the difference was that a 5 mile ride would have knocked me flat for the rest of the day. I'd be exhausted and just worn out. NOW, I get up and ride double, and triple that (sometimes even quadruple), I get off the bike and I'm rarin' to go. Today I was cleaning the house and listening to music...and literally dancing around. ME...jumping and dancing???? It is a testament to my physical health. Amazing!

super congratulations on your big weight loss. I am in the Biggest Loser Challenge too. Isn't it cool to see those numbers drop down into another decade!

I remember Christmas 2006 - when I'd lost maybe 20 or 30lb, and my uncle commented on the fact that I was jumping around the house. And I realised that I just felt so much lighter.

Now I've lost almost 90lb (with maybe 30 to go) and I am totally a differnet person. Right now i have NO energy, due to ongoing health issues, but I can totally understand the excitement of being able to do something that you never used to have been able to do.
When I'm fit enough and can get on my treadmill I feel like that about it.

Thanks for your comment on my post today - it's nice to see someone is looking out for me.
