I started my weight loss journey May 25th of this year and I figured I'd lose about 5-6 pounds per month. However, I was shocked when I stepped on the scale this past Friday and finally reached the first 20 lb. mark!
I had my sister on speaker phone when I weighed myself and I screamed so loud she asked, "Did you fall again"? Btw, i'm very accident prone, hence the "did you fall" question.
I'm surprised how much of a difference these first 20 lbs. have made. I sleep so well, when I run up the stairs in my apartment I'm not out of breath and I just generally feel so awesome!
I rewareded myself with a cut and color at my hair salon on Saturday. It looks FAB I must say.
My birthday, August 25th, will be offically 3 months since making my "life change". I've warned my parents I DO NOT want b'day cake and no calabash (we're going to North Myrtle Beach for my b'day). I'm determined not use my b'day as an excuse to "slack off".
I'm so excited about this journey and I'm looking forward to the entire experience from beginning to goal, on to maintenance. Good luck to you all with your weight loss endeavors!
