My journey to a better self

So, I started this trip a little over a year ago, and I went strong for the first 7 months, then I slacked off, got back on track for a few months until I had lost a total of 90 pounds. Then I got derailed by life... loss of a job, my only son growing up and joining the army, going back to school, and being broke all the time. I thought I was "good enough" and have to just deal with where I was and not push for that last 50 pounds to reach my goal weight.
I'm going to call BULL CRAP ...

I'm going to call BULL CRAP on myself. I'm going to lose that last 50 pounds, but it may not be as quickly as I had originally set out to do. I'll do it my maintaining a steady pace, not pushing myself so hard that I want to give up.
I'm hanging in there. I will not give up this fight!
