I'm so happy today! I have lost my first 20 pounds since I started! I was looking at my ticker when it hit me I have lost 1/5th of what I want to lose. I found myself thinking "I can do this 4 more time!" LOL! I'm not suppose to weigh until tomorrow. I chose Fridays to help get me through the weekends but I woke up today and just had to know. I'm so glad I did because just the other day I was feeling really crappy cause I ate so much of a certain food that I shouldn't eat that I felt I had undone all I had worked for in the last 37 days.

What A way to start the day!!:carrot:

YAY!! Good for you!

YAY!! Good job! I hear people say that the first 10 is the easiest to lose, which I think so too because of water weight, but the next 10 I think are the hardest. It's when the real work shines through and you have to be dedicated to which ever program you're following, so you should be so happy and proud of yourself for the 20 lost! That's awesome!

I highly recommend finding things that are 20# and carrying them around so you can really visualize how much 20# is! It's a heck of a lot! And you should be incredibly proud of yourself!

Thank you everyone! I just feel so good that I did it and it has made me want to keep going. Losing 20 pounds is such a motivator.

It's so great to have a place to come where people really understand how I feel losing that weight. I told a friend how much I lost and their first response was "how much more do you have too lose?" I just wanted to hear how great it was and not something to remind me how much more I have to go, lol. But it didn't make me feel any less happy about what I've accomplished so far:)
