Is It Real?

I mentioned in my post the other day that the number on the scale had finally dropped. I was really happy on Saturday with the new number. As for going back to weighing weekly, well that hasn't been going so well lol. I've sort of managed to do it every other day, which I suppose is an improvement. I guess I just need to keep working on it.
Anyway, yesterday morning I got weighed and was in shock, still am really lol. I saw a number I've been desparate to see for SO long. In the UK we work in stones and lbs and I've been wanting to be 10 stone something for like forever lol. Yesterday morning I saw that number, 10st 13lbs/153lbs. I re-weighed three times just to make sure, then put the scale away in a daze. The pessimist in me immediately said that it was just a blip and that I'd bounce back up again today...
Well today came and although I didn't plan to weigh, I just couldn't help myself. 10st 12.5lbs/152.5lbs....
I really can't believe it, it just feels surreal. My official weigh in day isn't til Friday and I'm still determined in my head that I'm going to bounce back up by then so I can't seem to allow myself to be ecstatic about it, it's like I've been given THE best gift ever, but told I can only have it for a day lol. I know I shouldn't weigh tomorrow, but I also know that I'm going to, and then again on Friday, before I finally believe what I'm seeing. If this really is right, I've now lost over 121lbs and am less than 8lbs away from my original goal of 145lbs to get me just into the healthy BMI range!
