It has taken twelve weeks but I have reached my first major goal of losing twenty pounds.
I usually set myself smaller goals, but at 20 pounds is where my reward system kicks in. Will wait another week to to be sure that I don't gain any weight before I reward myself.
I weighed myself this morning and am sitting at 281.98 pounds, down from 302.58. I also weighed myself on two separate digital scales just to make sure that I was reading the scale correctly.
Next goal is thirty pounds.
Got to go and eat that apple!
