Fifty is special

Yep, I hit 50lbs today. It's funny how 50 is so much more special than the 48 just a week ago. Why is that? It is only 2 more lbs, but for some reason it is just way better! Another milestone in this journey. Here's the stats - with more information than normal in case anyone is interested:

Official weigh in stats:
Starting weight: 234lbs
Current weight: 184lbs (loss this week - 2 pounds)
Overall loss: 50lbs
Lbs to goal: 35lbs
Starting BMI: 36.6 (obese)
Current BMI: 28.8 (overweight)
Average weight loss: 2.5 lbs/week
Weeks since surgery: 20 weeks
Inches lost: Don't know!!! Should have measured!!!

Heck yeah 5o is special! If this were Weight Watchers, you would have earned a keychain :)

Oh, on a side note, I thought I'd let you know that the elevator trick I found on Google DOES work in my building. Instead of the close door button, if I press and HOLD the floor # that I'm going to, it closes immediately. SUCCESS!! Thanks for the random post :)
