Mini-Goals - Never thought 30lbs would be so easy!

I can't believe I'm actually posting here. I told myself that if I hit 30lbs, I would. The forum is amazing and you girls (and guys) have taught me so much, given me so much inspiration and faith in myself.

I began to wonder if the weight was going to come off. I dunno why, I was worried I was somehow different from the people that have had so much success on here. But maybe I'm not. I haven't been starving myself, I haven't been killing myself working out, yet here I am...30lbs lighter in only a month.

Just realizing how many calories I actually consume and then cutting them to about 2000 or less a day has worked so far. Moderate exercise and strength training with a resistance band 3 times a week.

Wow. I feel so much better. I can now officially say: I weigh less than I did when I was 9 months pregnant! Yay!.:woohoo:...because before I weighed more, and that was an AWFUL thought!!!

I might actually succeed this time! I can't imagine going backwards now.
