Default As of today, I've lost 30 pounds.

I never expected this to be a "mini goal" but the feeling I had this morning was above and beyond anything I've felt in a long time. I had no idea what a huge difference 30 pounds could do and I'm so glad I've lost it forever. My clothes fit so much better, I actually stop and look in the mirror rather than avoiding them completely. Picking out an outfit is so exciting instead of dreading what to wear.
I LOVE people asking me, "have you lost weight?" And I love the stares I get from people who rather not ask me if I've lost weight (What? Do they think I'd get offended?!). There isn't a single thing I dislike about the 30 pounds I've lost. I'm stronger! Hotter! Happier! Healthier!

I just know that if there is someone out there starting this journey, they will wake up one day with this feeling. And I can't wait for that to happen!

Yay! Congrats!

How funny though- I just stepped on the scale 10 minutes ago to find that I had finally hit the 30 pound mark!

Congrats kelly315! That means you must be feeling the same way I'm feeling!

And thank you so much guys! It means so much to have you guys comment back. My family is not very supportive so this is my main support group. <3

Thanks! But 30 pounds is so much more impressive at your size- I bet you're feeling totally different!

I think 30 pounds is impressive at any size! You still worked hard to get it off so it counts just as much.

I do feel quite different lol. But this is the weight I was when I graduated high school (3 years ago) so I think I'll feel even more amazing once I'm lower than that.

30 lbs is REALLY impressive at any size - it takes so much work to lose weight and stick to it! Congrats to both of you.
