I made it to another goal!

This morning I hit 159. I have been sitting at 162 for so long I had given up hope.
However encouraged by my GBS friends who have been so successful I have taken up the sword anew. JJ, Elizabeth,Lauryn and Cindy only to name afew have lost well over the 100 pound mark. I can too. I am slowly getting the message that all things are possible. It doesn't have to end with 100 pounds. I am in control and it ends when I say it does. I am shy of 4'11" with a very petite bone structure. My doctor did not find the fiqure of 125 that I threw at him outrageous  (because I like to shock sometimes : ). I can stay where I am and mantain like my friend who had the GBS surgery. She has larger breasts and tummy that I and hopes to afford surgery soon. OHIP is already agreed to do a breast reduction for her. Or I can continue on plucking away.
This is my journey and my battle. I need to keep reminding myself I don't need to settle and take second best in the weight department. All these people have made it happen and that means I can too. I fell off the wagon at Christmas but I am back on and hanging on tighter than ever. Falling off has taught me a lesson for the future. You can get back on. Go back to basics. The power of the pouch won`t kick in overnight but it`s there and waiting to do it`s job if you listen and cooperate. I'm in the home stretch. They say you have  a good 18 possibly 24 months of weight loss. Well I have 1 more year coming to me damn it and in that year I want to lose 35 pounds to bring me to 125. Thats no surgery. As a matter of fact who says you can't lose beyond 24 months.  Why wouldn't you continue to lose as long as you need to and are eating right and excercising.  I hope and I try and I'm here everyday. I believe at this point it's less about looks and health and more about wrestling a demon to the ground. Meeting a goal and having the strength willpower and tenacity to flip this fat the bird and say I won the fight. I am in control and you (Fat) will never control me again.
My new goal is 148 which for little me means OVERWEIGHT! How about overjoyed or overcome with happiness. If I win this battle there is nothing I can`t do that I put my mind to. Thats what getting there means to me.
To anyone who took the time to read this thank-you. This group has been my salvation. No one in my life has given me the support that you have and I treasure you all. Hope

If there\'s anybody that can do this is certainly you. This journey is ours to conquer and we can not be perfect- -that will be unrealistic but we can certainly keep going at it and we will succeed. Congrats on your weight loss and you have my support. You are a motivation for me and I know I can count on you to continue to inspire me. Good luck hun.

Yippee, yippee!! so happy to see you have made the \"150\'s\"...can\'t wait to joint you but I am struggling to stay in the 170\'s right now. My determination has been renewed in reading this. I have to exercise more...my mantra...I have been stuck in the 180\'s for 2 months...179 felt great...so, good for you...go girl :-)
