I'm not the type to like timed goals because I NEVER reach them, and then I get incredibly discouraged. But, a lot of people are inspired by them too.
It's taken me from early January 2010 to today to lose 30lbs. But, I'm so happy. My skin is tight, I know I can maintain weight during stressful times, and I'm proud. I'd love to get to goal tomorrow just as much as anyone, but I realize that it isn't a race and I'll get there slowly but surely.
So if you don't meet this goal, please don't give up. Take it slow if you must, especially during those stressful times. You'll be so happy in a year if you follow through. Losing slowly is not the same as failing
