I've lost 65 lbs!!!

I got on the scale this morning and it is said 250 which is 4 lbs. down from last week and brings my total weight loss to 65 lbs! I actually let out a woot woot and started dancing around the living room nakkie! After stalling in the 260s for soooooo long, it is really encouraging to see the scale moving again. I have been on track with my food and chanting the mantra "Food is Fuel" every time I eat. It seems to be helping. I have increased activities but not to where I would like them to be so I will keep striving to improve that. I am still a long way off from goal but it motivating me to see the scale going down again. This also means that every lb. loss is new territory for me. The most I have ever lost at one time is 40 lbs. so this is exciting. I have 35 more lbs. to lose until I get to 100 lbs. lost.  I am going to get to goal! 

Dave made it through his surgery okay. He needed my help last night so I did not go to the gym. I am going to go home after work tonight and make dinner etc. and I will try to squeeze in some activity. He does a lot of the housework so I am realizing now how much he really does. Plus we don't have a dishwasher so I made dinner and washed dishes plus did some other chores. I am still upset with him but trying to put that aside for now so he can heal and resume work.



P.S. I have a surprise for you tomorrow!
