So many firsts!

Sunday, January 05, 2014

This has been a crazy couple of months. First of all, I've never lost more than 60 pounds on any weight loss program in the past, and I'm over 75 pounds lost, and, more importantly, still going! I haven't quit!! And, that's another first!
In November, I got to do the zip line and an ATV tour while in Hawaii, and while traveling there, did not have to use a seat belt extender on the plane! All of these are firsts (the seat belt extender has been something I've used for many years).
Later this month, we have plans to go on a snowmobile tour - another first. And, we were featured in a newspaper article last week! Who knew I would ever achieve anything in the area of weight loss that would be news worthy! I'm still in shock!
But, I think the biggest change is that I am confident that I will reach my goal for the first time ever - mostly because all of the changes I have made are showing up as a part of my lifestyle now. We plan activities on our vacations rather than where we'll eat. I take water with me everywhere I go to make sure I get enough in every day. And, yet, I also don't feel deprived at all - we were able to enjoy the holidays and still lose weight.
So, I guess the thing I've really gained besides all of the confidence is hope - I finally have my HOPE back!
So excited about 2014! Here's to finally reaching my goal weight after SO many years! Let's all make this OUR year!

    The Bible says that of Hope, Faith, and Love, "the greatest of these is Love."

    Maybe from a strictly religious point of view.

    But in some cases, Hope trumps all. Because without any hope, you can even get out of the gate.

    Or off the couch.
