View Full Version : ONLY 4 pounds!!!
10-17-2006, 10:47 PM
Well, my dear raw family, I have ONLY 4 pounds to lose to be below 200 pounds, and I am sooooooo excited to say that.
I haven't been this size since I can remember, in 1989 I weighed 205 pounds, and I dieted for months to get there, but I can't remember being 203, I MUST have been, because I can remember being 148, and 170, but never 203.
When I crossed over the 200 pound mark, I lost all track of everything, I thought my life was useless, I felt horrible, I felt like no one would ever like me again, so I just closed my eyes, as I passed that number. LOL
Now, I WANT to be that number, I DESIRE it with all of my heart, and I am willing to wait for it, for as long as it takes.
Because that number is MINE.
MINE, I tell you, all mine, yes, someone else may covet that number, but It is MINE.
and THIS time as I pass 200 pounds on the scale, I'm writing it in the sky, I'm celebrating with an entire day at the womans' spa, no holds barred, I'm getting the works, everything, massage, foot and hand massge, full body scrub, facial olive oil and milk body rub, I'm going for the gusto,
so don't think I'm sitting back and waiting for this number, remember, I'm gonna' shout it out that I've crossed that line for the LAST time ever.
this month, this year, this whatever, I'm gonna' be LESS than 200 pounds, and I'm gonna' stay below that number for the rest of my life.
KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE!!!

I am just gonna say congradulations right here and now!!! I know how you are feeling right about now and I want you to truly celebrate like there is no tomorrow when you cross that number!!! It is a wonderful feeling!!! Welcome to the club there are many of us here who are happy and successful members.
I, for One, never doubted for one minute that you would not achieve this goal or anyothers in way of raw. You deserve a round of applause, a big fat avocado, one of your favorite Alissa recipes, and one of your famous brownies made by the loving hands of the Draggon himself!
Just keep dancing with joy about how much youve achieved and surely the 4 lbs will just melt away! Congrats to you! You are RAWSOME!!
10-18-2006, 03:12 PM
thank you all so much, I am so blessed to have you all as my raw family/friends.
Tombi, just to let you know, Dragggon is no longer in my life.
And I will succeed in this, I will prevail, I will cross that number once and for all, It takes as long as it takes, no matter how far, no matter what mountain must be climbed, I will reach that number, then go on, below, far far below that number, this is my life and I claim it.!!!!!
Thanks for all of your support, everyone.

10-18-2006, 04:06 PM
GO RP! GO RP! GO RP! WHOOP...WHOOP! GO RP! GO RP! GO RP! WHOOOOO HOOOOOOOO! Keep it up...keep pressing in! Claim that victory! :D
10-18-2006, 04:09 PM
You are such an inspiration to me! Let me think...195 was in 1982! I get close to 210 and I self sabotage myself! Love to eat out....downfall! Look forward to weekends out and about on the town! Still haven't figured out why I've done this to myself. :(
I just went thru the closets again and filled a bag with too big stuff. Got some turtlenecks for the cooler weather here in Oregon and found 2 CASHMERE SWEATERS...all at St. Vinnies for 20% off! Yahoo! Down from 2X with a couple of 3X in there to just regular XL. New underwear too, that is sooo difficult! (I know, I know...it's for being seen in public!)LOL :eek:
Love every post you create, I read them all...I think we all do! If I miss a day of 'chat' I feel lonley, I miss having a chat with my new friends. Thanx everyone. :D
10-18-2006, 04:14 PM
I love your name! LOL :D When my husband and I were first married...I won our first argument by stating, "I'm Queen that's why!" He laughed his head off and our fight ended. (It was over a new microwave....and he wanted the rectangular one...I the square...you can put taller items in it...but that's off the point! LOL) Cool Name!
Yes...I totally agree...We all love RP!
10-19-2006, 11:52 AM
Well done RP. It is a great achievement.
I think you should definitely post some photos when you are under the 200lb level and go party!!!!!
10-24-2006, 07:44 PM
When are we going to the SPA sister???????????????????
10-24-2006, 08:34 PM
You mentioned in another thread that you weren't comfortable in your body at 203....I have this to say....you must be a LOT more comfortable in your body at 203 than I am with mine at 140....and we're the same height.
Your SPA visit sounds positively luxurious, but I wouldn't be comfortable having anyone massage or rub my body at a spa !! Maybe my husband, but no one else touches my fat and cellulite !!~~@@~~!!
KUDOS to you ....
10-24-2006, 08:40 PM
Well, I'm back down to 203 now, so it's just a matter of time, I'll keep you all posted, I've been at 210 for a month then all of a sudden went all the way down to 203, then sabotaged myself, then back up to 214, for a couple weeks, now back down, it a roller coaster here in my body, wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
so, when I know, trust me, you all will know. LOL
as far as feeling comfy in my body, well, I used to really care who saw my body and touched it and all that, but as I get older, I realize that it's not all about me. I mean, I never notice anyone else's body in those spas, so why should anyone notice mine?
and if they do? so what, do I value their opinion? probably not, so I just do my thing, and let it be what it is, my thing.
I enjoy the body scrub, and they are sweet Korean women, who are talking to each other a mile a minute in Korean (I am assuming) as I can't understand a word they say, even when they are speaking English to me. LOL
so, I don't care if they see my cellulite or not, I just want to feel great, and they do a great job of that. YES!!!!!
I haven't been in about 5 years, I used to go about once a month, but when I was with my bf, I used to think it such an extravagance, and we always had such money issues, now, for some reason, I don't have any money issues, even though his money isn't coming in any more, wonder what that is all about. HUH??????

RP I'm cheering you on girlfriend!
Today marks day 30 of a 100% Raw for 30 Days goal I set for myself. My reward is a massage... not quite as luxurious as your spa treatment. Live it up! Enjoy yourself and thank you for everything you offer to us on this board.
11-21-2006, 10:59 AM
Whohoo! You rawk! That is just so absolutely wonderful. I'm dancing here for you and dancing for me cause I'm following in your footsteps. Down down down!
11-21-2006, 04:01 PM
That is very very exciting! You will certainly attain whatever goal you set for yourself. I always read your posts and find them inspiring and fun.
Good for you Congratulations!
