Happy 10 year anniversary. My scale gave me a present. Finally, going in the right direction! 123.5! Down 1.5 overnight

Granted, it's STILL .1 OVER my pre-load weight 2 weeks into VLCD, but I'm thrilled. I knew that because I am considered a "normal" weight for my height that the possibility of not losing anything more between round 2 and 3 was up there. I am feeling confident that now after 4 days of gaining, that I am going the right direction and I believe I will at the very least hit the 100 teens. 2 weeks to go. I'd only need to lose 4 pounds to get there. I'm really hoping that since the last 4 days I gained 3.5 pounds that I will lose those 3.5 quickly as well. 2 more to go to get back to 121.5.

Today is my 10 year wedding anniversary. My husband is being adorable about it. He normally forgets our anniversary, but this year he is just showering me with love. I feel so incredibly fortunate to still be madly in love. I've never known anything like this before.

I wrote out all I felt I needed to yesterday in a word file and am eeking the story out here, however I am still processing it all and see where I need to make some changes. My angst is jumbled in the story and it really needs to be separated out as to not be confusing. I'll keep working on it and posting it in spurts here. The processing is so cathartic. I am really gaining an understanding about who I am and why I react the way I do, and why I've been so unhappy. I can't thank all of you enough for being my sounding board.

And now, a trip down memory lane...
