Default 8 weeks later...

I just needed to pat myself on the back for a minute. I started my lifestyle overhaul 8 weeks ago and this is what happened:

1. I quit smoking, cold turkey, and have not had a cigarette for 8 weeks.

2. I have lost 27.4 pounds, which is over 10% of my starting body weight.

3. I have gone from a size 24 jean to a size 20, and a pretty snug size 18

4. I have learned an enormous amount about food and am amazed at the garbage I used to shove down my throat by the pound on a daily basis.

5. I have gone from barely being able to do 3 minutes on the elliptical to doing a full 30 to 40 minutes.

6. I am starting to recognize the face I see in the mirror.

7. I am starting to gain more self confidence.

I still have a very long road to travel but I am determined to reach my destination.

Here's to another productive eight weeks!

Fantastic! Seriously, that's a pretty amazing 8-week list of accomplishments! I honestly would have figured all that would take nearly a year. You're simply amazing! Keep up the great work!

That's FANTASTIC progress! So proud of you. Congrats especially on the 8 weeks of being cig free, quitting smoking and losing weight are two huge chunks to rip off at the same time
