I know that it is a phrase I use often since I've been on my journey to a healthier and new me, but it is so true! I never dreamed I would be at this point! I've made it to the 160's. I was in the 160's when I got married in March 1978. I about fell off the scales when I saw I weighed 169 lbs this morning! That makes me to have lost 181 lbs since March 2009. I have only 19 lbs to go until I get to my goal weight of 150 lbs as set by my doctor. I've given myself until Halloween of this year to accomplish it. We'll see how it goes. My DH and I went shopping for some clothes at a local resale shop and I was able to get into 1x's and 2x's and the fabric was not even the stretchy kind. That is a long way from the 7x plus sizes I was "attempting" to wear when I first started 3 years ago. I owe all my success to God for His helping, guiding and teaching me a new way to live and survive. I'm in the fight for my life.
