You are kicking butt. Small goals work best, so you can hit them 10 days early, like this one.
Now you just need to be consistent. Weight loss will slow some, especially if you up carbs, or find a food that stalls you. However, if you watch out for those foods, and stay on the diet, the weight loss doesn't really drop off as much as you would think.

Hi everyone. As some of you know I had a goal to lose 10lbs by my bday on June 14th. I started this on May 21st. Well as of today's weigh in.....drum roll please..........I HAVE LOST IT!!!
I am SO excited!! Like I've told some and wrote in my blog, I am not starving at all. If you're my friend you see my food blogs and what I eat. I snack a lot but it's on things like celery w/ cream cheese or spinach dip, a cheese stick, hard boiled eggs, maybe a lil of some leftover meat I've cooked like baked chicken. And then my meals are just basically chicken, turkey, beef, fish, eggs and veggies. I drink a TON of water. I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full.
I also have been on an exercise streak since May 21st of AT LEAST 10 min a day which is more for toning as I lose. So I am making a new goal now to lose 8-10lbs by the 14th. At this rate I believe it's going to happen. As I also said in my blog, I know the numbers are big now b/c *I* am bigger and I know this rate of loss will not always be. But I will take it while I can get it. Woot!
As always, you all have helped me in just the short time I've been on this journey so thank you very much!
Low carb works for anyone wondering!!!
Oh and my ticker will not reflect the loss until my next official weigh in which is this coming Friday. I have already done my official weigh in for this past Friday. I can't wait to see how much more I will have dropped by then! :)
