Met my weight goal!!

Sheila_Ann Posts: 365 Member
Wow! I actually did it. Took me a long time but I actually met my weight goal today of 135lbs. My highest was 160. I feel good and look good! Thanks to everyone on MFP who have supported me either by being friends with me or thru my posts. My next goal is to go from 25% body fat to 20% by labor day. I also bough for the first time ever a bikini to wear when I go to Florida on Thursday.

I'm so happy and on cloud 9 right now. I never thought i'd see the day. For those of you who are looking on giving up, please don't give up. With support and determination you WILL get there. I battled cancer, divorce and the weight and I got thru it all.

I'm always happy to accept new friends. I'll always be there for encouragement and support.

Thanks for reading my post and have a great day everyone! Keep counting those calories! :flowerforyou:

    Great job, getting through all of that! Keep it up and have fun in Florida- I'm going this summer, hoping to be comfortable enough to buy my first bikini, too!
