YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!

I DID IT! Or, should I say- I AM DOING IT!!!!

I started at 210 on January 1st and am proudly 169.7 lbs today! I have worked my *** off to get here and I am so proud of my hard work! I've been watching my calories like a sniper and it is absolutely paying off!

A few years ago, I worked my *** off for the other hardest fitness thing I have ever done in my life: two half marathons, a 30 k and finally, MY MARATHON! I am using the strength I discovered in my marathon through my weight loss journey. I am now at the half marathon mark! This is AMAZING!

I know that also means the second half will take longer, will be even more cruel and gruelling and will yield even more doubt, but I also know that I can do it!

Thank you to everyone for your enduring support, patience and guidance as I slice these pounds off. You are all AMAZING and really, I don't think I could have done it with you!

No, onward to those next 5 lbs, and to go online shopping for my halfway reward!!!

PS- Yup, you'll see snow in the background of these pics. They don't call me NorthernChick for nothing!!!
