Weigh-in Tuesday, with updates galore!

It's Weigh-in Tuesday, so I hopped on the scale this morning to find myself down another four pounds!  I think my body must be quite happy about being able to move more.  (I know my mind is, too.)



That brings my total to 64 pounds lost since January... and just a few pounds until I'm under 300.  I'm almost there, you guys!  Though, of course, I have another 130 to reach medically "normal" weight... and if you've been following along, you know that because of my history of disordered eating and food addiction, there really is no such thing as "almost there" on this journey.  I'm committed to doing this for life.

Luckily, doing this for life (so far) has been surprisingly fun.  The more I write about it here, the more it becomes clearer that I want this blog to be a celebration of this process.  So yesterday I updated a lot of my information pages on the site, to share a little more about myself, and to clarify what Finishing the Hat (the phrase, and the blog) really means to me.  If you haven't seen them yet, you can visit About Heidi and Frequently Asked Questions, as well as my Progress Photo page for a couple of new photos.

On another note - I want to thank each of you who reached out to me yesterday, in response to my post about my mother.  It meant so much to me, knowing that you were all out there, supporting me.  It was such a difficult post to write, and I am certain it wasn't easy to read, either.  So thank you, so much, for being a part of my journey.  Please know that each day is made easier because you are all here.

Okay!  I'll be back tomorrow with a little Glee-ful adventure... and until then... you know the drill.  Take care of you!


  1. You're doing so well! I love that your approach is celebratory - I think that's going to make all the difference in your long-term success. I'm trying to take more of a cue from you and do the same thing.

  2. Wow!!!!!! Congrats Heidi!!!!! You are on fire!!!!!!! =0) You are, quite obviously, taking care of you!

    A glee-ful adventure, hmmmm? Looking forward to hearing more on that! =0)
