Where do I go from here?

The lowest I've weighed on a scale in nearly 10 years is 269. I'm a mere pound away from that as of today! The lowest I've weighed since April 2000 is 262.... which is LESS than 10 pounds away. I hit that all time low of 262 about 3 weeks after I gave birth to the triplets.... amazing how pre-eclampsia, once resolved, makes you lose weight rapidly. I never saw that number again since.... but I'm looking forward to the day that I do. Hopefully, it will come in the next month or two! What a joy to hit that number again!

Where do I go from here?

Into uncharted territory, that's where.

I must have been going through an "ostrich" moment from age 20-24, when I just didn't weigh at all. (ostrich = head in the sand) I have no recollection of any weights, except for a day, sometime in 1987-1988, when a friend Vanessa and I went to Living Well Lady, and I weighed in at 216. Before that, I remember 185 as a senior in high school, 160 as an 8th grader, and 140 as a sophomore, my lowest weight ever at age 15. I doubt I'll get there again, and that's fine.

My doctor set my goal at 150..... and that's what I'll have for now, since I haven't been there for so long, I have no idea what will be good. And since it's so far away, it's not necessary to nitpick the future, when I need to keep my goals in front of me.

Next goal: 269....... which should be met this week, since I was 270.2 today.

Oh....... and those brownies I made for my boys that tempted me a few times this week? FU..... I won!
