One Mission Accomplished - A BIG One - the hardest one to achieve.

Just a quick lunch time blog. Busy week! Anyway, just wanted to say, if you haven't heard, (I've been shouting it from the top of the hills) I finally arrived at my goal weight. So very exciting for me. I started this mission the very day that I found out that I made it into the St. George marathon. I started May 11th with big plans of being finished with this goal by July 1st. That didn't work out exactly right, but I continued with the plan.

So last night, I weighed in (I know, never weigh at night) and yippie, hot freakin dog, finally - I see "The Goal" on the scale. 11.8 lbs lost. So excited - wanted to call a couple of people, but decided they might not appreciate the late night call to discuss my weight loss. So the next best thing - send a tweet and facebook announcement. I have been using Twitter and Facebook to announce these things to "keep my straight and on task."

Now the hardest part begins - keeping it off. I am feeling great, healthy, and motivated. The bloggers that I follow help to keep me on track and motivated. Thanks!

How wonderful! Keep up with the great motivation and go celebrate with a Skinny-Cow(only 140 calories!).

Congrats, Ginny! Especially as you weighed yourself at night (brave woman!), which means that you actually weigh less than what you saw on the scale that night. It's really difficult to lose weight while maintaining your training level, so kudos you! I'm still struggling with the same thing...and I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that I may very well never see 135 lbs. again!

Thanks the support. I will definitely need it to keep the weight off.
