I have been feeling really good about myself lately. Every morning I wake up and it seems I notice something different. I never thought I could get rid of this weight and I am on my way! I can’t wait to be someone I have never been before. Finally my body can let me live up to the things I never thought I could do. My Mom even said last night that it’s like I have pep in my step now. I still have my down days but I am glad I have more good days than bad. 69 more pounds to go until I lose 100! Any day I feel behind or if I feel things aren’t moving fast enough I always think back to day 1 and look at where I am now. I have never lost this much weight ever. I never really tried. I never really thought it was possible.
To clear some things up I have been getting asked what program I have been using or what plan I have been on or diet fad I'm on and to remind everyone I am not on anything. I am losing all this weight the old fashioned way with diet and exercise! In the end my fear is for a rumor to start after I worked my butt off that I had a weight loss surgery. So if you hear anything like that it is 100% NOT true!
Speaking of goals I would like to let everyone know that I have reached a goal of mine today! I now can fit into a shirt that never fit me before! This literally set the pace for my day on a great note. I can’t believe it.
Don’t mind my goofy shorts. I know the outfit doesn’t go together lol
