GOAL!! GOAL!! GOAL!!

No, I'm not talking about my favorite Hockey team, the Chicago Blackhawks! I'm talking about me! I lost 4.8 lbs this week. I think my 3 lb gain last week wasn't entirely all a gain. My body must have been doing funny things last week.

But this week? 160! My goal weight! My mouth just dropped open when I stepped on that scale (I don't own a scale at home).

I would like to thank all the little people! Just kidding. Seriously, the blogs I started reading before starting my own and all the people that comment on my blog now! You guys are a huge part in this accomplishment and I see such inspiration from all of you. So thank you!!

Now I have to wrap my head around maintenance. How do you do that when you have been in "losing mode" for the last 3 years? I need to switch my thinking.

So I'm definitely not at the end of my journey! Now the hard part starts!

And I would like to send a little shout out to my home Hockey team, the Chicago Blackhawks that are in the finals of the playoffs. It's tied 2 games each against the Philly's. I've been a Blackhawks fan since I was born! I would love for them to win the Stanley Cup! Now that I've blogged it, it has to come true!

GO HAWKS!
