This Has Been a Longer Battle Than I Imagined...

but it is so worth it! Hit 190 flat today. I can barely believe it. Now I thought I'd be at goal by now, this is true, but I am mightily encouraged that I am still losing, even if it is slower. My skin looks great. There are the imperfections that come along for a woman pushing 40 but otherwise no complaints. My aches and pains have nearly subsided completely. I am not exercising so much as I did last year because I have got to focus on nutrition for now, but I am not beating myself up about that. I just continue. The things I have learned this year are invaluable. The lessons I continue to learn just marvelous. I am conquering food! Me! Who would've ever dreamed it real!
I am so thankful for this loss. I have not been this light since I was 17 years old. I cannot wait to hit the 180's, I will probably fall on the ground and well, who knows, lol, but if you were in my living room when it happens it would be a guaranteed sight to see! Be encouraged faithful travelers, we will reach our goals. They may shift, they may plummet, they may seek to crumble, but if we only just continue one, teeny, tiny foot step in front of the next, we will, we will, we WILL succeed!
Happy New Year!
Now! (well, I'm actually 2.6 pounds lighter now, but you get the idea) ;)
