AT GOAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is just quick update because I just had to let you all know - I GOT TO GOAL TONIGHT - in fact I managed to get a little past goal with a loss of 1.1kg which takes my total loss to 19.2kg - the lowest I have been in probably 15 years !!!!!!
YYYEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA - just in case you were wondering - yes, (like Big Kev !) I’m EXCITED !!!!!
I did a happy little jig down the path to the cricket club when we were leaving and Kaitlin said “Stop it Mom - you are embarrassing me” to which I replied “There is nobody around - no-one ahead of us and no-one behind us and I feel I deserve to do a little jig” and she just laughed.
Thank you to everyone who has left such encouraging comments, who have sent such thoughtful e-mails and who have provided me with so much inspiration and motivation through your own journals - I know that without you guys I would have battled a lot more than I did on this journey. So a huge THANK YOU to you all.
I am celebrating with a Boost chocolate which I will eat later tonight when I get home from work - or maybe half before I go and the other half when I get back.
Have heaps to do but will try later tonight to up load some of the photos of my shopping splurge last week.
Take care everyone and have a great week !

Great work! Congratulations. You've inspired me to stop dordling (spelling??) with this last 1.1kg.

Beware of the boost bar though... they are quite addictive!!
