Default Down to single digits!

Hello all!

As of today I am officially into single digits for reaching my goal!!

Starting weight: 262.4
Current weight: 136.5

I have 8.5 pounds to go before I get there. It's ben a great journey so far, but this last part is tough (I've posted about this before!) So many people tell me "oh no, you must be done now - you're so thin!" and "you don't have any more to lose!" etc. etc.

The compliments are great to hear but the reality is I'm NOT done, there is still some "fat" area's that could use some trimming. It's tough not to get caught up in the comments and think "ok, maybe I should stop".

Trying hard to keep that motivation going!

Thanks all! I'm aiming for Halloween for my goal date - there are some challenges over the next few weeks so we'll see. This group is so supportive!

Had my WORST workout ever yesterday so back on the horse today to keep at it.
