104 pounds less of me.....

well first I want to say that I have been trying to upload my video for 2 days!!! ugghhhh...I hate dial up...but in the country you don't get much choice!! So I couldn't wait anymore....even though I am still trying to upload it!!! I did it!! I did it!!! I did it!!! I was so nervous all day monday......but when i stepped on that scale!! and I seen 296..(yes I am excited to weigh 296) I was so happy!! I lost 6 pounds bringing my total loss to 104 pounds !!!! and this is the first time I have weighed 200-anything since 1994 or 95...so it's been awhile!!! and of course the entire gang was waiting for the thumbs up!! and check this out they had cards waiting for me....and these balloons with 100!! which I love..my nephew came over last night...and I told sommer hurry I want to hide my 100 balloons!!! there's just something encouraging looking down at that number!!! and know that I am carrying around that much less......
and then look at these napkins that say celebrate 100!!! oh yeah..these are so going to end up on something scrap related!!! I have the most awesome group.....I know I say that all the time..but it's because it's true..and just proves that it is more than just changing your eating, you need support....too..
and I know I have mentioned before that I wanted to get a heart with 100 engraved on it....to kinda celebrate this moment...and as soon as I stepped off the scale...Terri handed me this box!!!! which as you can tell I ripped open!!!

and look what her and her hubby (mike) did!! they've both been in the group about the same time as me!!! They got my heart..and even had it engraved!!! SHUT UP!! couldn't believe it....and it chokes me up , even now....just means alot to me....just knowing how much it meant to reach this goal, and then to have it given to you by friends, that have been there each step of the way....and know exactly how hard it is...I felt the love monday night....I honestly feel like they were just as excited as I was!!
on another note...I got some of my results back from my sleep study...and although they tell me it's nothing to get freaked out about, they do want me to see a cardiologist...which I am on friday!!! So I ain't gonna lie..it freaked me out....I just can't have anything wrong with my heart...I mean come on...I had so much trouble going to sleep monday night....kept thinking ...what if I don't wake up, and what that would do to my girls.....but through friends.. I know that it's probably nothing, and I am going to wait and see what the doctor says, but when you have been through what I have...it's scary to even have it brought to your attention.....so I will keep you posted and hopefully will have a video to post soon too....

WTG STACI!!!!! Congrats on reaching 104 lb weight loss. This has got to be making you do the HAPPY Dance. What a sweet couple to get you your 100 heart charm. You do have an awesome group!

Try not to overly worry about seeing a cardiologist, I know it's hard but maybe it's something small. Let's hope anyway. Take care and keep your chin up with that big smile!
