That makes me only 2 pounds away from my first goal that I have set for myself. This time around instead of worry about the big number ( you know that number we all get in our head when we decide that we are going to lose the weight). For me that number was way too big to even think about. I started my journey on Nov 5 weighing in at 298 pounds, I had originally set my first goal at 280 by Dec 29th but when I...

I have stopped calling it a diet and am instead looking at it as a new way of thinking and eating. I truly feel like this time I actually get it. I have always been a heavier girl I believe the smallest size i ever got down to was a size 13. ( I would love to see that size again lol ) It was not until I got married and had my two sons that I slowly crept up the size I am today( 22/24 ) . Of course I have spent cou...
