If I knew how to include confetti on this thing, I totally would. Unfortunately, I don't. I went to weigh in this morning and guess what?! I lost .4 bringing me to a grand total of 50.2!!! I finally made it. I am celebrating-don't get me wrong-but if you know me...I immediately brought it to a non-celebratory level. While I am excited...I only left room to gain .2 pounds over the next couple of weeks. I looked at my calendar and I will be going at full diet speed only half the time during the break. I would not be surprised if I fluctuate a bit and have to reach the 50 pound mark once more in January but I am overall very pleased with what I've done. I have hit a slump the past few weeks. I went from not losing less than a pound every week for 6 months to gaining or staying the same or only losing .4 so I'm trying to adjust. I am making some changes so I plan to pick back up soon. Also, I'm glad I didn't weigh in AFTER my Christmas lunch at work because, phew, I ate too much. It is Christmas right?

Another cool thing I wanted to mention was in reference to my Wednesday blog. In that post, I mentioned Greg Staffa, the man who lost his job/home for being overweight. He somehow found the blog and very graciously commented on it. I thought that was so thanks Greg for making me!!! How about a tell people about my blog and I will keep spreading the word for you... Greg's website is and if you are able, get on there and read all about him and possibly help him.

Ok-I think that is all for today. I am going to Chattanooga this weekend to see my family. I'm going to try not to eat too too much but you know what happens when you let a wild animal out of her cage. I posted a "before" picture of myself below...and yes I picked an awesomely horrible picture on purpose. It's one that I took right before I started Weight Watchers...then I posted 3 "down 50 pics" below it so you can see the difference...forgive the poses...I was being kind of silly! I hope everyone has an AMAZING weekend and I spread love to you...really...I do!
