Thumbs up Starting to happen

Last week I was at 26 lbs lost.. and it's starting to happen. People are now starting to notice. I have never stuck with it long enough to get to this point. Trust me - it's so worth it. It's a huge motivation for someone to say "hey - I can tell!"

My trainer noticed about 2 weeks ago. That was huge and encouraging.
To all of you that are around the 10 lbs lost point and think like I did - I've lost 10lbs, can I be done yet? lol - Keep Going! Every day does not have to be perfect.

What's different this time?

I started by exercising first - then started dieting (always been the opposite before)
I quit drinking soda
I don't eat/drink "diet" products
and here is the big one:
I don't act like I have to be perfect. The only rule is that I can't quit. No matter what!

AWESOME!!! Isn't it GREAT when people notice the effects of your hard work? Way to go, and write those rules down and put them on your mirror, and review and look at them EVERY SINGLE DAY!

You ROCK!
