I am VERY happy to report that I am down 2.2lbstoday... with a total loss of 11.4lbs. The lesson I am learning in all of this: slow and steady wins the race! I know this is an age old adage, but it's one that really shows to be true for those of us working towards bettering ourselves and ultimately, our lives.
Though I have roughly 70lbs left to lose (ouch, honesty hurts!) until I reach my goal, (a goal I set for myself... this is not aided by the BMI calculator, but is based on when I remember being truly content with my size, my physique, etc.) I have to admit that I feel really good.
With the knowledge that I am working hard (and still enjoying life!) -- aligning good eating choices and regular exercise, my body seems to be screaming: "I LOVE YOU! YOU'RE TOO GOOD TO ME!" Hehee. Again, I feel really good.
So... as the lbs continue to slowly, but surely slip away... I am encouraged by my progress so far and eager to see how I'll feel a few more weeks from now. What will my body say to me then? Maybe something to the tune of...
Thanks everyone for your encouragement and support.
