255.6: 30 Pound Benchmark

30 pounds in 6.5 weeks! What? I am flying sooo high today!

I've spent the past two days sleeping, eating, recovering from convention and drinking tons of water. Tons. I think that's key right now. When I keep myself hydrated, I stay on track.

There's so much weight ahead of me to lose. I rejoice in what I've done, but I have to stay focused on my end goal. I am morbidly obese (I really hate that designation, but it's accurate) and in danger of a myriad of diseases, strokes or heart problems. I feel so much better now. I can't imagine what another 20, 40 or 60 pound loss will feel like--but I'm gonna find out. Yippykiyay!

I have to take up this cross every single day. No resting on my laurels--even if they're smaller now than they were 6 weeks ago.


  1. Bonnie! Yippykiyay is exactly the word I was searching for! I am so proud of you! :) And to reach that with the stress of preparing for and executing a fabulous Convention, well, that is a serious accomplishment. Way to go, Bonnie! I hope you get lots of relaxing in this week, and again, I'm so impressed. (The mention of your laurels being a little smaller now cracked me up, by the way. :) )

    (I hope Convention went as smoothly and fabulously as usual. I'm sure you and your team wowed everyone, and it was a huge success. :) )

    Miss & love ya!

  2. Bonnie, that's great! Keep up the good work!

  3. Go you!! Bonnie, I saw photos of you at Convention, and your progress is REALLY obvious .... wow, you are looking fantastic! Keep going .. you can do it!!

  4. That is so cool! I am very proud of you. Keep it going! Love ya - Jennie

  5. Awesome news!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs. Deb
