Did NOT Make My Goal, but...

Friday, July 29, 2011

This month my goal was to reach 130 pounds. Unfortunately, I am 131.4. I did not reach my goal, but I am proud of myself because I am still pushing. I have been on a journey to keep my weight below 140 since 2005. Yes, it is a long time. I do not want to revisit 225 pounds. At 225 pounds, it was sedentary, tired, out of shape and ashamed of how much weight I gained over three years. Although some women carry their weight in all the right places, I did not!!! I had wide hips, a flat tush and a flabby stomach. At 131.4, I feel better about what I represent on the outside. Weight loss has been the hardest journey I have ever encountered. Those who are having difficulty, keep pushing!!! It is easier to surround yourself with people who live a healthy lifestyle, then those who just talk about it...

I will keep pushing... You should too!!!!
