Project MILF Update: ONEderland

Well folks I've finally done it.
As of Thursday I have lost 71 pounds.
I'm FINALLY under 200 lbs for the first time in almost 4 years.
Welcome to "ONEderland" as my WW leader said.
Officially back to wedding weight.
And it feels great!
This is the goal I've had in mind since I joined just 8 months ago.
I couldn't wait to finally fit back into all my "skinny" clothes I'd been saving and lugging from house to house with hopes one day they'd fit again.
And I'm proud to say I've been sporting those jeans for about a month now!
With this goal now behind me it brings up a new set of challenges.
My biggest fear about reaching this huge milestone would be a loss of momentum.
I'm usually very comfortable at this weight.
I get to this point and I stop.
Or I hit a plateau and just give in to the fact that this is as good as it gets.
But this time feels different.
While I'm proud of how far I've come and am amazed when I catch my reflection in the mirror, I know I'm not done yet. 
Not even close.
I never want to see a "2" at the beginning of my weight again.
Ever.
I am now more determined than ever to keep on going.
To reach my ultimate goal.
And to make my "skinny" jeans fall right off!

Happy Monday Peeps!

I have to tell you, dayummm I'm so proud. But that's not what. I just had chills reading this post because I remember that point, too. I set this "first" goal and was like "if I get there I'll feel great!". But I DID feel great...however, I wasn't done. I felt like I still had fire in me and I could get healthier. And so I did and then took off another 15lbs or so and it felt SO GOOD. So you can totally do this! Also? I looked at your pic on IG the other day and thought "She has a runners body". I now challenge you to start couch to 5K. No, really. :P
