Start Your Diet Today!

It’s Official!

I AM officially at the 1/2 way mark now!!!!!  I am now at 218 lbs and have 33 lbs to reach my goal of 185!!!!  I am so happy and thrilled!  I litterally went for 2 mths on a plateau so it’s so great that those #’s are finally moving.  Thanks to ALL of you for your support.  Never have I visited a forum that welcomes it’s members, whether they are casual posters like myself or full fledged members, with such open arms and such awesome support!!!!!!!  WE CAN ALL DO IT!  NEVER GIVE UP!!!!

UPDATE:  I did 11 min straight on the elliptical.  I’m still thriled with these #’s because it wasn’t too long ago that I could only manage about 3-4 min at a time.  Somewhere along the line I seemed to break through this threshhold and suddenly could triple that time–AWESOME!

I also noticed I can walk around my block much easier now too.  I live on a steep hill, and I’ll never forget the first time I walked up it.  Gosh, I had to stop about every 30 steps and take a breath.  Now I can breeze around it without stopping.  I still walk hard enough to get my heart rate up so I’m still getting a good walk in….I just don’t feel like I’m going to die each time I do it!!!!

    Katy, Gonnabe, and Susan thanks for all of your encouragement. It’s people like you that really keep me going and inspire me to do better. I know we can all reach our own personal goals and make them come true. XOXO’x to you all for supporing me. Can’t wait to lose the other 33 lbs now!
