I started this journey on March 9, 2012 tomorrow will mark 11 months. I have officially weighed in at 70lbs off this morning. When I set my weight loss goal at 100lbs I never thought that I would be this successful. Now don't get me wrong it has been hard. This journey has caused a lot of sweating and a lot of calorie counting. Everyone gets healthy in their own way. I can't even imagine this journey without my Spark family. I especially love my Sapphire family from my BLC group. When I joined their team last September I had lost about 30 pounds and in the last 5.5 months I have lost another 40.
Why did I make my goal 100lbs off?
When I checked my BMI rate I was in the Obese zone and in order to get into the Overweight zone I had to lose 69lbs (which I also hit today with this weight lose.) In order to hit the healthy zone I have to lose 98lbs, so why not make my goal 100! Even after 100lbs off I will still weigh 143. I know I will be happy with this goal because I am already happy with how far my body has come.
My next goal is to lose another 10 pounds to hit the 80lbs off goal. My goal is to do this by April 1st.
Here is a before and after picture. I've lost 8 more pounds since this picture has been taken.
