Today I became an official card carryin' member of the Weight Watchers Lifetime family!  There were trumpets (OK, whistles actually) and confetti (unlike my doctor's appointment the other day).  It was emotional.  Tonight, I really really wanted to go out to a nice dinner with my family to celebrate, but after waiting 3 times longer than they told us we left with a crabby, hungry 3 year old in tow and no dinner, no celebration.  I can't pretend I was not disappointed, but in perspective I will remind myself that this is not about a dinner out to celebrate.  This is about getting my life back, that is something I get to celebrate every single day!  I celebrate it when I run for 30 minutes without stopping, slip into size 8 pants, and hear my little boy ask for apples instead of french fries. 

I have much more to say, but right now this week has left me completely emotionally drained (still no MRI results yet), and all I want to do is crawl into my bed and sleep (and possibly cry).

I promise a full post on my thoughts about reaching lifetime this weekend... cross my heart!

Oh yeah, and I'm down 1.6 pounds today for a total loss of 109 pounds even.  On to 110 next week!
