fifty pounds

Three years ago I weighed 49 pounds more than I do now. Last night, while I was looking for pictures of my exs I came across a few from that time and I cant believe I ever looked like that. It has taken me three years, two babies and the removal of an organ to lose what I have lost. To make it to 160 was not my immediate goal this time around but it was my goal back then. What a wonderful feeling to know that even though my body has been through a lot of changes and the weight was very slow to come off, it still has. So now that I am down to 1 lb to go before I hit this major milestone Im thinking of ways to celebrate. I haven't done any of those weekly gifts to myself since I moved so I may just pull one of them out but Im not sure. This is a big deal and I want to make the most out of it while recognizing that I still have another 20lbs to go to hit my target weight. Any ideas?

I think I might do cute shoes or a cute purse or a fun hair color.

WOW!!! That is huge!!! How wonderful that even with all the stress in your life you've still been able to manage such a milestone! Hooray for you!

I think this calls for something important. Maybe a new pair of jeans and a shirt that show off your new self? You could even get them at a consignment shop, if you wanted,to save some money but still get something new to you.

Just wanted to say congratulations. That is quite the accomplishment... one that calls for a nice reward like a new hairstyle or new clothes.
