Default Yeah! I finally broke through a wall!!

For all of you who don't know, I signed up for the Scale Back Alabama challenge for the chance to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks and be entered in a drawing for a cash prize with my team members. I didn't hit the 10 lbs mark, but I came close...9 lbs and I'm very proud of myself.

Well, a few weeks have gone by, and I had hit a barrier of not being able to budge under 180 lbs. That is until today when I weighed in. I was skeptical and scared to death. Scared of a scale, yea that's so funny, but it's true for most of us I'm sure. Anyway I stepped on the scale with fear, but I was then overwhelmed with joy because I had noticed that I was finally under the 180 mark! For weeks, I've been stressing out so much, but now I can celebrate knowing that I'm finally going to do this. 11 lbs gone forever!!!

Just thought I'd bump.

Still only 11 lbs down. I try to get to the gym when I can, but with working two jobs, I find this difficult sometimes. Also, who feels like working out when they are in a depression funk? Excuses, excuses LOL. But I really am trying. I've noticed that I'm almost ready to come down another notch in my belt, so I'm happy about that at least.

That must've been a great feeling, good job!

I personally can't wait until I hit onederland, I haven't been under 200 lbs in almost 6 years.

Keep up the great work!
