Look at Me, Sittin' in My Victory

SEPTEMBER 2ND:

The deadline has arrived.  I walked into my dietician's office this afternoon totally nervous and anticipatory for the news ahead: would I be fired, or had I reached that elusive goal weight set up for me by my treatment team?

She weighed me.
She said nothing.

I looked at her.
I cleared my throat.
I jiggled my leg.

She looked at me.
"What," she says?
I say, flabbergasted, "It's september 2nd.  HELLLL-OOOOoooooo!"
and she said,
"Oh.  Oh yeah!"

"WELL?" I practically scream.
She smiles.  She smiles really big.
"You did it.  Congratulations!"

The best 4 words I've ever heard.  EVER.
This girl is happy.  :D
This girl did it.  This girl did it when she didn't think she could, gaining xx lbs (haha sorry Shell!) was not easy.
I proved to my team and to myself
that
I
can
do
anything.
And that feels really,
really good. :)
