Since I am leaving town tomorrow, I decided to stop the HCG drops a few days ago and move into maintenance. I am two and a half pounds from my goal weight, which totally amazes me. It was an arbitrary number. 120—a number that was on my driver’s license for years and years, whether I actually weighed my low of 125 or my high (in those days, it went higher later) of 150. So I picked 120 to match my old driver’s license weight. I am 122.4 today so I guess that will just have to do! omg, am I really writing this in a blog for the world to see?! Part of me is excited to be so transparent….and then there is the part of me that wants to hide under the covers.
I need to celebrate….without food! I am so excited to be in a smaller body. It is now fun to go into the dressing room and try on clothes (a size 6!). When I lost weight as a younger person I never got into clothes smaller than a size 9. I know the women’s clothing industry has changed their sizing so that a 6 now is what an 8 used to be. Either way, I’ll take it … and celebrate.
