After eight weeks I have lost 20.5 lbs. It's been quite awhile since I could boast a number like that. It's been quite awhile since I've been able to boast any type of weight loss. I will admit...I like the sound of it. I had my hair done a couple of weeks ago and my hair stylist's first comment was "Have you been losing weight?" I couldn't help but smile. I love that girl! A guy at work has been telling me that "I"m getting skinny." I tell him I love him everytime. :) It's been a long time since I've heard compliments like that...and that's after losing only 20.5 lbs. I still have another 16.5 lbs to lose for my first goal weight.
Yes, I said my first goal weight. I tend to bite off more than I can chew sometimes. I decided this time around to set small acheivable goals. Right now I need to concentrate on the 16.5 lbs that I have left of this part of my journey. Ultimately my goal weight is to be at 155lbs. That's another 20 lbs, but I can't think about that right now. That would be me getting ahead of myself. I can see the end of the road, but I first need to make a few pit stops along the way.
While I'm taking this journey, I'm going to enjoy the compliments along the way. The same comments are also the motivational sparks that will get me where I want to be.
