This week, I hit my first mini-goal (20 lbs gone) and it sure did feel good.
I know I've got a lonnnnnnnnnngggggg way to go, but this time it just seems to feel right.
Back in the day when I was a heavy smoker, I quit more times than I can even remember, but when the time came that it just felt right, the quit "took". 8.5 years later, I'm still grateful that I didn't give up trying.
Now I'm working on my weight again and have been seeing some interesting results. For example, I've been at it for ~4 months now and have lost 20 lbs. I also managed to maintain and even drop a bit during the holidays, without working too hard at it.
I'm NOT on a diet, I'm just trying to make some changes and make better choices. It's happening slow, but it IS happening, while life goes on relatively unchanged.
As I said, unlike the gazillion other times I've tackled the weight issue, this time just feels right.
Wish me luck.
