Default ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TODAY-- but I am not at goal

Today is my one year anniversary for starting this JOURNEY. However, let me get this off my chest..... I did not get to the goal I wanted to be at.... but it is my fault and I know what I have to do to correct it.

If I would have done this thread yesterday it would have been a pity party, but today is different. I met with my bootcamp leader and we did my measurements. I have lost 75 inches in a year! That is OVER 6 feet! When we saw that number---- he turned to me and asked me who was going to feel sorry for me that I "only" lost 75 inches. So..... I am holding my head up high.... and I am going after these last pounds with a vengence.

I don't have a pic on here..... well b/c I am not computer savvy and I don't know how to attach one......

I feel much better since I made my "confession" about not making my goal and knowing that I have put it in writing that I WILL make it by the end of the year!

Thanks for listening.

You have lost 75 inches and 73 pounds! That is amazing and something to be very proud of! So what if you didn't lose all the weight you wanted to lose by your one year anniversary? It doesn't lessen the fact that you have made substantial progress. I think the weight loss journey is a marathon, not a race.

Congratulations on your accomplishment! You have come so far.

Cheers,

J

You have made an amazing amount of progress!!! Congrats on your one year anniversary and I'm certain that you'll meet your goal in no time. Plus, think, if you hadn't started on this journey a year ago you'd still be 70something lbs heavier and 75 inches larger. Look how much you've accomplished in just one year of your life.

you are kicking some major butt. I have been at this 9 months and only lost 25 lbs and I know it is ONLY my fault. After reading this I have to kick it into high gear. CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!
