Forgive the self indulgent post today (umm what blog isn't self indulgent?) but today's blog is all about an accomplishment I achieved today.
Today, June 17th, 2011
2 years, 6 months and 16 days later
After MANY MANY starts & stops, injuries, parties, laziness, holidays and other obstacles
SHOUTING FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS
I HAVE LOST 65 POUNDS
(sorry about the language)
January 2009 to June 2011
I'm not done yet, but this was my main goal.
A 65 pound fish
I almost cried this morning when I stepped on the scale. And it would have been a good cry, not a bad cry.
When I started this journey, that mountain of 65lbs was scary, so I took it 10 pounds at a time and 1 meal at a time. That's all I could do. I couldn't focus on the mountain, I had to focus on 1 step at a time. And here I am.
I'm not done yet. I want to lose at least another 10, if not 20.
But today is MY day because I am proud of me.
