Today has been a great day, shopping with my Mom. Beautiful, bright and sunny day. Life is good and I have nothing to complain about.
I read the blogs here everyday and realize that I am lucky that I don't have the struggles that others here are having to deal with. I feel fortunate that I am healthy enough to get up and walk around, the fact that I have a loving and appreciative husband, and the most loving family in the world.
So yesterday I showed my "before" picture...ugh!!! This is what I look like today. I am down 74 pounds and still have about 90 pounds to lose. My goal weight is 175, for now. I know that seems heavy so some, but I have not been that weight since I was in high school. I will frankly, be thrilled when I get under the 200 mark! That will be a day to celebrate. The last time I lost a significant amount of weight, I got down to 200 and felt and looked great. But I want to be in the best health possible so I am going to try for 175.
I am feeling really strong and vital today. My motivation is high and I hope it stays.
