As of my weigh in yesterday, I have reached my halfway point, 50 lbs lost, 50 more to go! It has taken hard work and dedication but, I have stuck with it! I started out originally wanting to drop 66 lbs. When that goal started getting closer I decided to push it back to my ultimate goal, and a healthy bmi weight. I am excited and just as motivated as ever! And along with this weight loss many other positive things have happened for me. I started a new job that Iove, I quit smoking, and quit drinking. And the more days I got without doing these things that were unhealthy for me (smoking, drinking, eating poorly) the better I feel! It can be done guys! It's not easy, but it is very rewarding! I've grown to like a glass of ice water rather than a beer. I've grown to enjoy going to the gym (which my trainer can take full credit for because he makes it fun the 3 or 4 times we work out together every week.) I cannot say enough how amazing I feel and there is still a long road ahead of me, but every step on this journey is easier than the last. And I know now that I can do it!
