Don't jinx it...

Dare I get my hopes up? As of this morning's weigh in, I'm .4 away from the Dr.'s recommended # given to me 5 years ago. Less than half a pound! According to my app I can expect to see it mid August. (I lose at an average rate of about a 1/4 lb per week) I'll be shouting from the rooftops when this happens...probably drive everyone crazy! But I don't care! I've been wanting to be able to say I've lost 80 lbs for so long, not 75, not 78,...80! I've accomplished most things that I've truly set my mind to. This has been the bane of my existence, the one that has been THE most difficult. To be able to say I've achieved this will be so satisfying. I'm then hoping I can work on my head and try to develop a more healthy relationship with the scale and my weight, focusing on fitness and lifestyle, rather than a #. Even reaching this #, I can still afford to lose more weight (BMI chart will still have me 4lbs into the overweight category), but it's what the Dr. suggested so it's what I consider healthy, which was my ultimate goal in this journey. Fingers crossed...keep pushing!!!
