Final "Official" Weigh In

Six months ago, I accepted the challenge to lose weight. I had been trying really hard, but the push of competition made me try a little harder. The best part of this has been that it has forced me to really think about what I eat, the caloric intake, and why I eat more than just for nutritional reasons.

I've picked up some new good habits:
1. When I'm out to eat, I don't feel the guilt to lick my plate clean.
2. I've proved to myself that I can set a goal, persevere, and reach that goal.
3. I'm learning to not totally hate myself. (If people don't want to know me because of my weight, who has the bigger problem?)
4. I'm regaining some of my spunk and desire to "live."


O.k., the final weigh-in: I've lost two more pounds since Saturday. That gives me a grand total of 32 for the past six months. Now, that a lot of my stress is set aside for a couple of months, I hope to take the weight-loss up a few notches (in a healthy way).

I have a little exercise room here, and I plan to use it, especially the weights. I have Zumba, can walk a good bit now, and I have a pilates abs thing.

I'm feeling so much better, and that is the best part of this. Really.

I plan to be even more rockin' (Lord willing) by the end of the summer. I'm tired of the beaten-down mess I've become.

Admiral
Fine with me. :)

I'm utterly grateful to you and Ssssteve. Seriously. You both may have saved my life.
