50 Pounds! Its Official!!!!!

Oh Happy Day! Oh Happy Day!

I couldn't make it to my WW meeting tonight because I was going out to dinner with some of my co-workers and administration. Luckily for me, there's a Weight Watchers Center not too far from my place of work so I made a point to go weigh in before tonight's dinner. I was quite happy to be told that I had stayed the same this week! Yes, I managed to keep off each and every one of the five pounds I lost last week after having the flu! This makes it official, I've lost FIFTY POUNDS! Yeee hawwww!!! Now, only 22 lbs to go to goal!

Tonight when I got home, of course I stitched :-D When am I not stitching, besides being at work or sleeping? In all honesty I should of pulled out an ornament I started back in October, its the Ivy half of the Holly & Ivy ornament I stitched awhile ago. But I just didn't feel like facing all those scotch stitches (whose idea where they by the way... Teresa? Jennifer?). So I pulled out this cute little freebie off of the Dragon Dreams website newsletter!

The teeny-weeny dragon is adorable. But, I really wanted to shout .....

CONGRATULATIONS! Fifty pounds! That's great.

I'm hoping some day I can say the same thing. I've just lost my first 10 on a long venture to a healthy weight. I've got about 50 more to go.
