What's my anchor?

Everybody has something that they anchor themselves to in order to get them through. It's funny, because that was the topic of yesterday's meeting. My leader held up a ceramic figurine of a scrappy puppy drinking out of a water bowl. Tad bit odd, but it reminded her of her Grandmother - one of the strongest women she knew.

While I find that to be completely heart felt and super sweet, I have to admit that my anchor is a little bit more selfishly trendy. lol.

I have a thing for shoes. Shocking right? I decided when I started this journey that for every 10 pounds that I lost, I would do something fabulous for myself. In my mind, that means that for every 10 pounds that I lose, I get a new pair of shoes!

I didn't buy a pair when I lost my first 10. I had a moment of clarity and decided that I should probably wait. Well...that didn't last too long. A few weeks ago I reach the 15 pound mark and bought myself a pair of hot pink cork wedges. I have to admit...they are pretty bad ass. And they make my looks look amazing. ;)

So this week I lost another two pounds! Yay me, right?! I'm officially down 18 pounds and am only two pounds away from reaching another milestone. Although I decided that I'm going to hold off on my next shoe purchase until I hit the 25 pound mark. That is a pretty significant milestone in WW and by that point, I'm going to need a new pair of Sperry's to get me through the summer.

So with 12 more pounds to go, I can totally see the end in sight. Here's to achieving those milestones and getting a few new pairs of killer heels in the process!
