Light is shining

Wow! I am seriously doing a happy dance. I lost 2.5 lbs this week. This is fabulous. I'm thrilled. Ecstatic. Over the moon. There are not enough superlatives in the English language to express how good I feel at this moment. This is a total of 15.5 lbs since I started my weight loss program.

The weight is falling off me like a lot of the negativity in my life. I am feeling freer and happier and more in balance than ever before. I am making healthy choice in every aspect of my life, not just physical. I'm not hiding anymore.

I feel like I am on the downside of a roller coaster ride and wheeing all the way down. I know the climb up will happen again. I have too long a ways to go yet on this journey. But for today I am thrilled and rather than just post this at my private weight-loss blog, I really wanted to share it here as well.

Today I have a lot of excitement ahead of me. After getting some packages out in the mail, I am meeting
Darlene, Wanda, and Angela Marie at Hamilton's Cafe in Hughson. We all discovered a few weeks ago that I live just about 10 minutes away from them. Amazing. Pictures to follow.

Wishing everyone a great Memorial Day weekend.

What a good feeling to be making that kind of progress! You are right; the roller coaster will probably defy gravity in the future, but remembering this feeling will help you get through it.

About that meet-up--no fair! Wishing I could send hugs along for them. Enjoy and share. :D

Anne: Wasn't today fun...thanks for the little gift, I love it. Angela and I were so sorry Darlene ended up in emergency today, and couldn't meet with us. Next time.
Love and Hugs ! And now I can see your sweet face in person.
