I still can't believe what my scale read when I stepped on it today. 7 lbs lost in 20 days! I am also one dress size smaller. Yay!
I basically achieved this little goal by counting calories, giving up soda and fast food and of course, by exercising (I use Jillian Michaels Dvds and my elliptical)
Yup, that's it.
A lot of hard work and sweat went into losing those pounds and I can't wait until I reach my final goal of being a size 6
The best feeling was when I tried on some pre pregnancy clothes and most of them fit again!!!!!
I felt like quitting a few times because I was simply to exhausted from working full time, getting ready to go back to school AND by taking care of a 6 month old to focus on anything else. Especially to get up and do my work out when I was just so tired of my hectic life.
But I didn't give up. The long term prospect of feeling and looking good is much more rewarding than a quick stop to McDonalds.
Anybody can lose weight. It's just mind over matter
Good luck everyone!
