I was out of town for ten days, and when I got back I just didn't feel much like posting.  This morning, I stepped on the scale and was treated to a nice surprise.  I weight exactly 200 lbs.

Now 200 lbs isn't exactly skinny, but it is a milestone number.  I've wanted to see a weight below this mark for quite some time, so I don't think it's going to take much to push me past that line.  All total, I've lost 62 lbs from my top weight.

That's nothing to sneeze at.

I still have a long way to go.  I need to lose another 37 lbs before I'm just overweight, and another 27 lbs on top of that before I'll be at what's considered a healthy weight for my height.  Once there, I'll still need to lose another 18 lbs to get to my goal, which is right in the middle of my BMI range.

So, all total, I need to lose another 82 lbs before I'm done.

That seems so very far away.

Still, I have an optimism that I've not had before.  This time, I really do think it's possible that I will eventually lose the weight.  

I also have some other good things happening in my life that I'm not quite ready to talk about yet.  I don't want to jinx them by saying anything too soon, but it's all good.

So this morning I reached a milestone.  Here's to hoping things continue to trend in a positive direction.
