40 pounds GONE!

  • I, a person who had little to no hope back on January 1, have lost 40 pounds!!!!! I began my New Year's Resolution with a bit of a whimper...but on January 25, made the decision to eat correctly and what I call clean eating. I have not wavered since that day. The first three weeks were, in a word, Awful! I honestly felt like I imagine a drug addict must feel when going through withdrawal! I surged onward, however, and one day, about three weeks in, I realized that I felt OK! I no longer snore, I can move easier, I can cross my legs, and I am enjoying my "friends' who I have "met" here at 3Fat Chicks. I enjoy trying to get out of the next decade thread before the other people on the thread! They are a great bunch and very motivating! I have a long way to go, but I plan to enjoy the journey...not to mention the destination!!!!!
  • Wow you did that quickly. I started my diet the same time.
  • I have many more pounds than you to lose....I expect that my weight loss pace will slow considerably as the pounds come off. Just have to keep on, keepin' on!
    Take care...jodoto
