Default Yay! 1/4 of the way there!

So even with the awful relationship troubles I'm having and my mother's insistence that since I'm feeling down it's okay to eat (bizarre that I never really picked up on the comfort eating end of things- thank GOD!) I managed to lose 1.6 pounds this week!

So that brings my grand total since New Year's to 25 pounds!!!!

yay!!! And I can proudly say that so far it's been (relatively) easy thanks to eating healthier and not crash dieting but rather making better decisions.

YAY!!! I'm really happy today. I'm a 1/4 of my way to the 100 pound goal (which would be 202.4 at the end--- like a size 12) and even CLOSER to my "I'd be pretty darned happy with that weight" goal of 215.

Yay yay yay Jen!!!! WTG!!!

I'm so sorry about the relationship issues, but I'm happier to see that you aren't using it as an excuse to eat.

Jen!!! That's fantastic!

So sorry to hear you're having relationship issues...I know the feeling. BUT it is a wonderful thing when you emerge from the other side....stronger

SO proud of you!

Linda

Yep--- that's my goal. I've been faced with a LOT of crap in my life and I'm lucky enough to say that this time I have a good job, good financial status, a strong family backing, and enough SELF CONFIDENCE to pull through it without using food or getting down on myself.

For once I know things are NOT my fault and that I can handle them... no matter what way they decide to turn. ::sigh::

Bump in the road or not... I'm 25 pounds lighter today!!!!
