Entry 145: Another goal reached!
I am proud to say that I have officially lost 71 pounds!!! Holy crap! I am still a little bit in shock; lol. I have been really pushing myself these past few days and it shows. ONLY 29 more pounds to go until I will have lost 100. I never thought I could do this. To be honest I never thought i'd take it this far. I am so happy I did. I didn't know I had it in me to do this on my own and I can't even imagine where I would be now if I had never started. I can tell you this; I would not be in Virginia! Being overweight had made me so unknowingly self consious that it was the base line of all of my desicions and has made me back out of so many golden opportunities. I would have never done something this spontanious if I was still 338 pounds. I serioulsy would have missed out on this whole travel experience just because I was too fat.
I had oatmeal for breakfast and am on my 3rd cup of green tea. I am not sure what I will have for lunch. It will probably be something light. For dinner we are grilling out and having chicken and corn on the cob. YUM! If it were up to me I would make all of my food on a grill ha-ha. I just love the taste!
It is 1PM here in Virginia and I still have yet to work out. My Aunt and I are going into town in about an hour so I will probably walk later this evening when it gets cooler. There is a high of 77 today so it is pretty warm out!
Only a few more days and I will be digging my toes in the ocean sand and sipping on a Corona; lol... I CAN'T WAIT!
