I had a first goal to be at 140 by Monday the day my middle son graduates from High School. I did not make that goal, but for me it is just another number. What I have reached is so much more. I found myself again. My confidence has soared.
My body has changed for the better. I actually see some definition on my stomach, the beginning of the new me.
I am not disappointed by not reaching my goal since I know that I will reach it in due time. At first we are all in a big hurry to see it "melt" off. That is unrealistic. We all reach plateau's. I myself have had many of them, and have not given up. It has only made me work harder. Just like anything else in life if you truly want something you have to work for it. Nothing is going to just fall into your lap.
So even if by numbers I did not reach that goal, what I have reached is a healthier me. A person who has muscular legs, the beginning of sculpted arms, a little definition in the belly and what my youngest son (7) says, less of Mommy to hug.
