DAY 414 On A Downhill Slide...


Hidy Ho, Journal & Friends!

I'm on a downhill slide, all right... a GOOD ONE!

Today was my Monthly Weigh Day... and I am stoked, baby! I have finally, AT LAST, officially crossed that 

HALF WAY point! 

I have lost MORE than I now need to still lose.... Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!



Ah yes, the numbers: 
This morning...328
September Lost..7
Total lost........132
Still to lose.....129



I don't know WHY this should make me feel so JAZZED... but it does. It "feels" different. It really does feel DOWNHILL now. I know that is totally a mind trip... but I LIKE IT!



What a great kick off to the Hot 100 for me. And yes, I'm going to say it again... today is THE very one and only LAST DAY TO JOIN. 

Go HERE, now or never.  Steve, the Head Hottie, said that last year people hesitated, and missed the deadline, and later regretted it. 

But the rules are: you must join by October 1st. Hey, if you change your mind, you can always drop out... but you CAN'T join later... see??

Well, back to me... mwa ha ha ha...


My Un-official goal for the Hot 100 Challenge was to leave the 300's FOREVER, and bust into the Two-sies by the end of the Challenge. 


Well, we have 91 days and 12 hours officially left in the Hot 100 Challenge. And I have 29 pounds to lose to make it into the Two-sies. 

It's MINE, baby, it's MINE!


Today's Peek at the Past (Finally! A past post that I can say I now feel totally OPPOSITE to... except the Grateful part. Today, especially, my cup runneth over!)

From Day 53, October 1, 2009:
When I feel the drag of everyday, the sameness, the repetition, of still waiting to get to goal, feeling tired...in other words, when I forget to focus on all the things I have for which to feel GRATEFUL....I watch the video about the father and son team, Team Hoyt.

From Dr Phil's book: "Be willing to leave behind the safe, unchallenging, and familiar ways of doing thngs in order to have more..."

My verse for today: "They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you," declared the Lord.

My quote for today: "Let's trip the Light Fantastic, baby, just you and me." Zaphod, in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Enjoy the Journey,

Loretta

Hoooooo!!! What great milestone. More fabulous that you can see the finish line. I found it hardest when stuck in the middle - the starting line long out of sight and the finish line nowhere close enough.

You are so going to break into the 2's. Yaay!

Well Loretta, I saw your post title and started to think about sending you a pep talk but then I thought "not our Loretta, I bet she did great last month and the title means her weight is going downhill" and you did do great! Keep it up! ummm... down. :)

Deb Willbefree said...

WAAAAAHHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

How cool is it that on THE DAY that you officially cross over the halfway point, you have a flashback stating how hard it is to look ahead at so much weight to lose? ! :D

WAAAAAAHHHHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited for you. :D

I don't know what was up with us this summer, but we have turned a corner now--and are burning it up!

Uh-hmm. I'm going to start weighing every Sunday in order to include it in my HOT 100 update, so I delayed my end of September weigh-in a couple of days. It won't look like I turned a corner. chuckle. groan. BUT I HAVE! :D

We're HOT now!

BRAVO, BRAVO!! There is definitely power in that mindset! Keep up the downhill slide; you have crossed over into a new dimension!

Sharon said...

I should be jumping up and down, but all I can do is cry. I am so, so happy. What a HUGE milestone for you. I believe you are at the start of a giant period of success in your journey. And you've been so wise along the way doing it slowly, evaluating the setbacks and working through the emotional part of it. I will be here the day you reach that goal!! For sure, you have made my Saturday!

Just Me said...

Fantastic Loretta. Revel in your accomplishment. What a wonderful milestone. You're earned it, baby. Keep up the good work.
