JW's journey to goal

Started this journey around my 40th birthday. Have lost around 60 lbs and have made some significant changes in my health and lifestyle. Would really like to complete this journey by my 50th birthday. Then, of course, I will still need to stay the course.

Thanks for the comments about my blog. I am currently "eating clean" and loving it. I think I felt really bloated because of all the "good" fiber I was eating. Yes, I put 2 egg whites in my oatmeal every morning. I discovered this way of eating it from my new Tosca Rossa (I think you spell her name like that?) cookbook. Good luck to you!
