Day 205 – A milestone moment for me today. I am finally under 200lbs. My dietician and trainer, Erik Bustillo is the best there is. Without his constant care and support I would not be here. He is so positive and kind it is…slightly annoying as evidenced in the video he took this morning. For today’s torture, he whipped out a huge yellow rubber band and a heavy(ish) weight. He had me lifting and stretching and OMG. Even a nurse who happened upon us out in the parking lot couldn’t resist his charm when I called out to her and cried, “Help! I am a hostage!” All she could do was wave and smile in response to his. LOL

So he is admittedly ridiculously fun and perceptive. He even caught me flipping him off when he took this photo! I thought I was so slick slipping it in while pumping iron.

But the funniest moment today occurred when a person (who shall remain unnamed to protect the innocent) showed up to the Elite Health Concierge Waiting Room with DONUTS. D.O.N.U.T.S. I was incredulous. Seriously? Donuts? (See my blog days 89 “Street Donuts”, 114, 119, 121 – you get the picture. They’re chasing me.) I had to take a photo. It was hilarious.

I know some days are easier than others. I know to some it may sound bizarre that I’m happy about being under the 200lb mark. The entire team at Elite Health cheered for me and I busted out dancing with Erik. He does a decent “Cabbage Patch” and of course I delivered my patented “Moonwalk.” But I know there are some who wish they were under 200lbs. I feel their pain. Anyone who has struggled with weight loss does. Like a very dear friend who is ahead of me in the weight loss game. Like me, she admitted to freezing when the announcer for a football game listed the weights of linebackers and she weighed more. Been there. It’s ugly. Being under 200lbs at that point was a dream! Like me she made up her mind and did something about it.

Yesterday she gave me a bunch of the “fluffy” clothes she no longer fits in. I was so happy for her and so very grateful. They were perfect for me. Some still had tags! I’m so now! Don’t even bother talking to me. #Snap #HeadNod #NeckRoll
