Geez! I did it! I'm under 250 pounds & consistently enough that I feel I can claim it. And I didn't even have to hack off an appendage!
I just have to say, this is taking a lot longer than I thought it would. I had lost some weight a few years back (only to gain it all back) and, although that was only 7 years ago, it was easier & faster. Granted, I wasn't working as much & had more time to devote to the cause.
As frustrated as I can get about the time factor, I have to ask myself where I would be if I didn't just keep going? I may still be 'clinically obese', but I have an excellent/athletic heart-rate for one my age & weight. My thighs may still be the size of some people's waists, but I can BRING IT (for a phat gurl) during my workouts! One of my favorite self-quotes is 'Where skill fails, stubbornness prevails.' I may not be great at this or doing it 'right' (with my love for food and, dare I say, drink), but I just keep going. I can't even imagine NOT.
Thanks to all my SPARK friends for your encouragement & support. You help me when I struggle & I really don't think I'd even be here without you.
I'd really like to reach my goal weight by spring of 2011. Who knows? But, until then, I'll just Keep on Keepin' On.
Ain't nuttin' to it but to do it!
