Yep you read it correctly! I finally hit my first major goal of losing 100 pounds. I started this journey on January 3, 2012. So in less than I year, I lost 100 pounds. I cannot tell you how excited I am. This was VERY difficult and at times I did not think I was ever going to do it but I DID! Unbelievable! I am so thankful for my friend who began this journey with me and has been such a tremendous support system for me. She stuck by me and not once ever got tired of it. My next goal is to get out of the 200's. I have stopped setting deadlines...just goals. It was getting too stressful to set a timeline and then not meet it. I know that as long as I am eating right and exercising, I am bettering my health and I will get to that next goal when I get there. I am not giving up and I am NEVER going back to where I was. I think after you work SO hard on something, hopefully you learn some valuable lessons from it!
