I've finally hit the 50-pounds lost mark! :carrot: The first 25 pounds came off slooooowly over the course of a year, then I maintained that loss for another year by sporadically going on and off diets, never being consistent. Then almost 12 weeks ago I started Jenny Craig and quickly lost another 25 pounds.

I've also just started going for walks Monday-Friday for an hour each day and will be adding The Firm workouts to that soon. I'm recovering from a wrist injury, so I have to slowly work my way up to that.

Anyway, I'm feeling so much better than I did 50 pounds ago. Back then I was depressed, everything ached, I hated leaving my house to go anywhere for fear of running into someone who hadn't seen me since my "slimmer" days, nothing fit me comfortably and I barely had the energy to do my normal daily chores. :( Now, I'm not leaping and bounding out of bed at the crack of dawn or anything, but I've got at least 75% more energy and go places with my family. The depression has lifted with each pound that I've lost and I'm wearing cuter clothes to boot.

Life is good! :D
