This morning I weighed myself and achieved a major weight loss goal: FORTY pounds down!
I actually teared up while standing on the scale. On March 3 (just 16 weeks ago) I weighed forty pounds more than I do now. Last night I picked up a 40 lb. bag of corn and was shocked at just how much it weighed. I put it on my shoulders and walked around with it for just a minute and was so ready to put that sack down. I feel worlds better now - both physically and in confidence. Every ten pounds lost from here on will be a milestone. I will reward myself with little things like a new shirt or pair of pants. This Friday I am getting a pedicure as my weight loss reward. Ideally, I'd like to lose another 35 pounds and then try to maintain that weight loss.
Thank you so much for all the encouragement. I appreciate it greatly and love the added push.
