First Big Milestone!

Saturday, July 17, 2010

I have lost just over 20lbs since the beginning of June! I don't really feel any different, I just feel like me. I am exercising more and more, and I guess I have a bit more energy.
I am now 218lbs--I was 22o full term with my second child just over three years ago. I had many struggles over the last couple of years but I am feeling like the sun is starting to break through and things are getting brighter!
About a decade ago I was struggling to drop those last five pounds, I really wanted to be 140lbs. I exercised, a lot! Several hours/day. I bet I would have made it if I had had Spark People back then! If you had told me that one day I would get on the scale and weigh 240lbs, I wouldn't have believed you. Now I am just desperate to see the scale dip below 200lbs!
Anyway, I have made many lifestyle changes in the passed couple of months, and I know there are many more to come!
Staying strong, pushing forward!

    You feel like I do, can't wait to see the scale dip below that 200lb mark. I'm moving along slowly, but I won't allow my pace to get me anxious. I'm taking the time to learn about myself and learning to cultivate good eating habits, so all the best and have a good weekend.
