3 digits no more....

Postby Carly » Sun Sep 30, 2007 10:38 am

So today is the day I never thought would arrive.

I dragged myself out of bed this morning and being weigh in day, I stopped by the bathroom on my way to make my morning coffee. I stripped off (back turned to the mirror.. still hating what I see) and jumped on, fists clenched, waiting for the disappointment... waiting to see the 3 digit number that is so close to a double digit, but not close enough...

To my surprise I saw a 2 digit number. I thought I had morning eyes and I was missing something somewhere. I looked and looked and looked, but it really was a 2 digit number. I jumped off and stood there for a second and then i got back on... Same number, the same 2 digit number.

It has been a really tough task moving the last 4 kilos. I can not even begin to describe the heartache I was feeling. I never ever thought I was going to break the 100... I had come close and then gained a little and dropped a little only to gain a little more. I never thought it would happen.

So today is the day I never thought would arrive and while I felt good in the moment now I feel flat. I have acheived my first BIG goal today and I guess having been so focused on it for so long I had sort of forgotten that getting there was not the end... that it was not going to be the time when the struggle turned from losing weight to maintaining weight. I am happy, and I do feel proud, please do not get me wrong, but while I am feeling those things, I am also feeling a lot like I am starting from scratch again in a way.

I have had many bad days and always pulled through. I am sure I will get through this too. I guess I just thought I would feel nothing but joy and happiness today.. Because as of today I am 3 digits no more.

while you might have felt a little flat, i'm sure once it sinks in and you give yourself your next mini goal, then you'll start to feel positive & really proud again of what you achieved.

it's an emotional process & it's easy to think that by seeing a loss, you'll always feel great...but it's ups & downs all the way i think.

as you say, you've always pulled through before - you'll get through this as well and i'm sure you'll start to feel fantastic :)
