Mini goal celebration
In January, my father lost his hard-fought battle with lung cancer, courtesy of his service in Vietnam. As he literally wasted away before our eyes, I packed on the pounds. When I finally stepped on a scale in mid-March, I was 213.6 lbs, the biggest I have ever been, making me morbidly obese at just 5'2". I decided then the best way to honor my father was to live a long and healthy life. Since then I have been eating right and walking at least an hour most days. The scale had been hovering right around 200 lbs all week, but today I weighed in at 199.6! I'm am still far from my ideal weight of 130 lbs (according to BMI), but I wanted to just take time to celebrate the achievements along the way. I'm one step closer everyday! Remember, it's the little things that truly add up!
