I did it!!!

Sunday, December 22, 2013

Today I reached my goal of losing 60 pounds by 1/1/14. It took staying on track with my exercise goals (not always easy) and tracking what I ate (almost all of the time). And it was well worth it.

I feel overjoyed. emoticon

While i am celebrating my goal today, it is time to define the next goal. I'm going to ponder it today and decide what comes next for me. I still have a way to go to reach my end goal and am confident that I will make it.

If anyone thinks they can't reach their goals, they are wrong. If I can do it, anyone can do it. I was a couch potato who never thought I could lose weight and get healthy. Believe me, I was a slug who did nothing.

I have turned my life around and I am never going back to my old way of living. This feels too good to give up for anything. I used to hear the phrase "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels". and thought it was a bunch of boloney. I now know that it is true. While I am not "thin" yet, I am well on my way.

If anyone is struggling, hang in there. It is well worth the effort. emoticon
