I did it! I did it! I did it! And then some! I reached my goal weight this week and lost and additional 3 lbs. I can’t believe I am finally here! It came faster than I thought it would which is fine by me. I am pleased with the extra 3 lbs. as it gives me some wiggle room. Now the question is, how do I stop and maintain? I don’t really know.
I may try to lose a little more. I would be fine with that. Maybe another 2 to 5 lbs. That would put me in my high school weight range. Much more than that and I think I would start looking a bit too bony for my height and bone structure. I am tall and big boned. I will never be ‘small’. I am just not built that way. However I can be healthy which is what I am now.
My whole adult life I have dreamed of getting to my goal weight and here I am. Now my next question is: what do I do next? Also, I still think I look fat. I am assured I don’t look fat, but I still see a fat girl in the mirror. I don’t quite know how to change my self image but with the good Lord’s help maybe that will change in time too.
