I MADE GOAL WEIGHT!!!

Well, dear reader, it has finally happened. Cheryl is Cheryl again! That's right folks, last night I reached goal weight!
HALLELUJAH!!!!
I have not been this thin since...well...there was a time right after #1 was born that I got into my wedding dress...it lasted 3 weeks...and then I steadily gained weight from there-on, so I don't really count it. Nope. So, I have not been this thin since I got married, people! Nine years really isn't too bad. Some wait longer to get healthy. And that's okay! As long as they are gettin' themselves healthy. Because it's important, people! Important! So, go get yerselves healthy, okay? Okay.


[The first pictures were taken in June of last year, 2 weeks before I joined WW. The last one was last night after my weigh in. I'll post some more before and after shots later --as well as some of Brandon. I promise! I just don't have the ones I want on this computer! I've gotta go find them...]

Many people have asked me what I have done to lose my gorgeous 39 pounds (hopefully 40 before long! I'm hopin' to even out at the 40 pound mark and stay there, even though my WW goal weight is at the 37 pounds-lost-mark). Many have asked what I do every day. That will make for a very long post. So, I'm going to work on it this weekend and hopefully have it for you on Monday. But if you can't wait for inspiration, go HERE, then read HERE, and finally HERE (the entire blog will inspire you!).

Why the wait, though? I'm goin' to St. George, people! We're heading down there with some fabulous, fabulous friends and won't be back until Sunday night. I'm hoping to start Spotlight Sunday again (if I have internet access this weekend!), so watch for that...

I'm so happy!

You both look great and so happy. I love the natural high that comes along with losing weight and feeling healthy. I can tell that you FEEL great. Can't wait to hear more inspirational tips from you. Did you see Ali (Biggest Loser) on Ellen the other day? She looked great but man she seemed a *little* too hyper and confident. hehe. oh well, she deserves to be proud of herself:)

Yippee for you! You look awesome. I'm excited to read your tips, as I am starting my own running/fitness program on May 5. I am going to run a 5k in July, I hope. Anyways, great job!
