Over halfway, and ONEderful! w/ pics

Sunday, December 23, 2012

So: I have been waiting to write this blog for what has seemed like FOREVER!

I can proudly say:

I have lost 61 lbs
I am in ONEderland
I have lost 10 inches off my waist
And today when taking family pictures, I proudly stood in the front row!

I am so thrilled to be where I am today. It has taken a lot of hard work, and at times it seemed like I would never make progress, and even now I can barely believe it, but I have come SO far. Someone recently told me I'm a success story. That seems crazy to me because 1)I've ALWAYS wanted to be a success story and 2)I'm not there yet. But that doesn't mean that where I actually am isn't important! Because it is! It's huge! I am a SUCCESS right now, today, where I am. And I can't wait for all of the success in my future!

For the next 49 lbs I am GOING to lose (not need to, not want to, GOING to) I want to achieve more consistency. I got where I am with a lot of good-for-a-few-days-and-bad-fo
r-a-few-days weeks. I want to reach my goal confident that I can be consistent enough to do this for the rest of my life. Because there is no finish line at the end of this, there's only a road up a mountain to bigger and better things. No, it will never be easy, but it will be WORTH it!

    emoticon DONE GIRL, you look great. I know you won't quit so you WILL get to your goal. Happy Holidays. emoticon

Watch the YOUTUBE documentary from the BBC "THE MEN WHO MADE US FAT" and learn so much. I'm reading "Wheat Belly" by William Davis MD. He also has lectures on YouTube.
