GOAL!

I have been quite lately...I have been keeping a secret... I have hit GOAL!!

I wanted to make sure that it was here to stay. I have seen 155 once last month and then bounced up all over the place had a nice 4lb vacation gain. And then last week I saw goal two days and a row..but I wanted to wait a week to make sure it was here to stay.

The past two mornings this is what I saw.. there are no words to say how grateful I am for my band. I thought I would be going crazy, but I am calm. I think I am calm because there is hope I can actually weigh in the 140's where I think my ultimate goal will be.  

My mantra KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON :)

  16. I haven't hit my goal yet but I understand the calm. When you start, it feels like "goal" is the only destination...but with all the scale and non-scale victories along the way, and regaining control, the number's just a number.

  22. Woah!!! Congrats, Nicole!!! That is amazing, what an accomplishment, you should be so proud of yourself!! Damn, girl, you look hot:)

    Thanks so much, it is crazy to think that any day now we could have a baby!!! So exciting and scary all at the same time:) Were you down the cape at all for the long weekend? I've been here on and off, thinking today will be my last day and that I should probably be at home now in case she comes!

    You rock!

  23. Congratulations! How wonderful. I just got gastric bypass in May and I'm down 95 lbs. Lots more to go, but I know I can do it. :-)

  24. Isn't it the most amazing thing ever, ever, ever? Congrats! And, the best thing about it....it's not like any other diet---your band is NOT going away just because you HAVE ARRIVED!!!! Nope, now it will really show you how powerful it is---it will help you keep off the weight! Think about THAT for a minute or two and you'll really be doing headstands!!!
    Wow-wee-whooooppppppeeeeee!
    Onward!

  25. Wow, I can only imagine hitting goal is maybe surreal. Some of the weight loss goals I've achieved seemed so hopelessly impossible, and I wanted them so much, and then when I hit them... not much really changed. It's the big picture that's been the real "wow" in my weight loss. Anyway, enough about me... congratulations to YOU!!!
