I'm at Goal!!!!

Postby vanessa0305 » Sat Aug 18, 2007 8:09 am

I did it, today I weighed in at 69kgs even. Now this isn't the end of my weight loss journey as I still think I could lose a few more kilos but if I didn't I would be quite happy right where I am!!!

Now for my big big reward........

I am getting my teeth fixed. $1500 worth of work. I broke my front tooth while pregnant with my 2year old and smashed one of my molars and have some holes after years of bad diet that need work. I could never afford to go to a dentist, so this is my gift to myself for reaching goal. I went to the dentist yesterday and we set out a treatment plan over 7 visits and I am soooo happy!!!!

I can't believe I am at goal, I never thought I would get here!! Took just under a year.

thats ok for only 1500 bucks! dentistry can be quite expensive but i reckon you got a bargain there!

well done vanessa, you definately deserve this, you have worked so hard. im glad you are getting your teeth done for you and your smile is going to sparkle along with your confidence in your new body.

The 1500 is after my private health insurance. I joined the health insurance when I decided that this would be my reward. I am soooo chuffed. I just hope I can keep it off.

That is so awesome vanessa! I think confidence in your smile is JUST as important (if not more) as confidence in your body... and now you're going to have both! I am so happy for you hun :D
