Exercise- keep upping the weights.
Attitude: stay the course!
IN A NUTSHELL:
These pictures/blogs really help me keep it real, and keep me on track. I try to be as honest as possible, even though it's embarassing to write down how "bad" I've been. Anyway, even if I don't hit 118 by my BD, I feel much better in my skin... and it will come off (the weight)... slowly and surely! The dates help me keep the goal in sight. Thanks for listening and commenting!
