Did I Make It? The 50lb Target Update

Before I get to the weigh-in results, I first have an important announcement.  This week was the first week for the Member of the Week contest on my Facebook page.  To find a winner, I looked at comment "likes", discussion posts, and blog comments.  This week's winner is....drum roll..... LINDA NICKLE!!!

Congratulations Linda!! You are now in the running for Member of the Month, and the prize that goes with it.  Until then, you will have the glory of having a mention on the new "Member Highlight" section of the blog.

OK, now it's time to get down to business.  Last week, I made the announcement that I was 3lbs away from losing 50lbs.  I weighed in at 216lbs, and needed to reach 213lbs to reach the 50lb loss mark.  This week was my first week back to boot camp, and I was really nervous about pulling it off.  Well, I did not lose the 3lbs.  Here is what the scale said this morning:

I know it's a little hard to read, so if you're having trouble - the number on the scale read: 210lbs!!!! Not only did I lose the 3lbs I needed to reach a very important milestone - but I lose 3lbs more than needed.  It now leaves me only 11lbs away from weighing less than 200lbs....something I haven't been in 10 years!!! 

So, that's my post for today.  A very happy post - one that I'm extremely proud of!!

Till next time.  ;)
