I finally reached 224 pounds today and moved my ticker down. I have NOT been able to get below 225 in FIFTEEN MONTHS. I have been blogging and trying and working but always something (myself?) kept me from getting under 225. I am so proud of myself, I just had to share. And thank you for all your support!

Thanks so much guys! I feel amazing and it's awesome to have your support :)

that is fantastic Lyn. I know that now you've broken through that 225 barrier, you'll keep going!

(It's my current barrier too - I was 225.4 on Sat morning, but have climbed back up due to being sick, running a fever, not working out and making some bad food choices - a perfect storm of reasons to NOT lose weight, ugh! Anyway, hope to be following your footsteps down to the low 220s very soon!)

Already said it at your blog, but let me say it again, Congratulations!!

03-15-2010, 09:07 PM
WOW YAY!!!! Go you!!! i know how excited you must feel! :)

I saw that on your blog earlier - that is a fabulous change for the better, I hope it keeps up and you can see 214 and below!

03-15-2010, 10:52 PM
I am so happy for you. Now that you've busted through this sticking point, there is no stopping you. There are going to be many more break throughs in your very near future, I can just feel it.!!!!

03-15-2010, 11:28 PM
That is wonderful. I am so happy for you!

03-15-2010, 11:35 PM
Wow. Just, wow. Your commitment and sheer will to do this and break through that mental wall is awe-inspiring. I read your blog post and it brought tears to my eyes. You most certainly can make the right choices and not let the crap of life stop you from having the healthy, happy life you deserve. Good for you for finally breaking through! :hug:

Thank you so much! I went for a long walk today and the whole time I was thinking about how I am a whole new person than I was two and a half years ago. I couldn't even walk to my MAILBOX without limping, panting, and being in pain back then. Now I can walk 2 miles, easily. And do oh so much more.

The best part is being able to go downstairs and say goodnight to my children every night. I couldn't do that before.

I am just so excited and ready to watch the scale go DOWN!
