It's really amazing to me that I am losing weight! I weighed 193.5 at the beginning of July, and started using MYFITNESSPAL to monitor my calories. It seems like magic that the pounds disappeared, and i always think the scale is lying. No one has really noticed yet, but I know that I am doing a great job....because my jeans are getting loose. It's such a great feeling. There have definitely been humps, days that I have messed up or binged a little, and unsupportive people....but I really feel like i can overcome all of it. My mini goal is to reach 160 by halloween and wear something really cute to reward myself. Just wanted to share...and I hope everyone else is feeling as enpowered as i am!
