Two Milestones - Weight Loss and Not Smoking!!!!

Saturday, November 27, 2010

Today I crossed two milestones.

The first - I have lost a total of 26 pounds!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

The second, of which I forgot and my partner reminded me - I have been a non-smoker for exactly seven years!!!!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am so proud of myself for both achievements, for at one point in my life I doubted that I was capable of conquering either.

emoticon

So I've spent time today purposefully allowing myself to feel happy about my achievement. I could easily have given myself the message "good for you, now onto the next challenge" (the next two pounds, for example). Which, after all this hard work, time and energy, would not have been very nice of me.

emoticon

So instead, I've given myself this experience. I'm owning what I've done. I'm feeling a great sense of satisfaction and I'm acknowledging the importance of what I've achieved.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

And who achieved this?!

ME!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I truly believed that the amount I weighed was the one thing in my life over which I'd never get control.

It's so nice to be proven wrong!

emoticon emoticon

Through this transformative journey I'm giving myself a sense of control over my own life, and that is so very precious.

Once I've worked off the same amount of weight I've worked off so far, I will be 200 pounds.

emoticon

I've done it once, so I can do it again.

emoticon

One pound after that I will not longer be in the 200's.

emoticon

But for now, I'm very pleased with today's numbers!

...I'm very pleased...with Me!!!

    You've got the power!!! I am throwing you a mental celebration party for all that you've accomplished! It's wonderful you took the day to be proud of yourself and what you've achieved. No smoking for 7 years?! That is superb. 26 pounds lost? FANTASTIC!! I'm glad you're partner reminded you that you had even more to celebrate than you originally thought! Happy hugs!

    CONGRATULATIONS! ON BOTH COUNTS!

    You are 100% correct that you should own these accomplishments and bask in them. Reaching and maintaining goals is the foundation on which we continue to grow (oops, 'grow' may be a poor choice of words) ~~~ "develop" along our journey.

    An awesome blog, two awesome accomplishments. You go, girlfriend.

    Way to go !!! And definitely take time to savor these fantastic accomplishments... So many folks are always busy, busy, busy and on to the next thing without really taking time to notice and celebrate.

    Glad you're taking the time to enjoy it -- well deserved!
