Want to hear something crazy awesome?
I've lost 20 pounds.
Yes I have!!!!!!!!
The classier part of me feels like this probably shouldn't be discussed with my internet friends, but frankly, I'm so proud of myself that I don't really care.
So yes, I'm very pleased. Although I am quite frankly shocked at how little a visible difference the loss has made. I mean really...I thought 20 pounds would mean all my problems were solved & peace & good will would reign the earth. I honestly thought I would go down a pant size at least! I must have a very slender...spleen...now...but I want skinny legs & skinny arms & a tight bum!!!
So I will keep going. But I'm still way way proud of myself, because I cannot recall a single time in my life when I've ever successfully lost a nice amount of weight (without the help of the flu, or something). I've always been pretty average sized, veering to the pear shaped when not careful. I have always wanted to really kick my butt into gear & get superfit. Fortune smiled on me when my new neighbors (new as in February) moved in & opened a small gym ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE HOUSE. They are fun, tough, affordable, & so supportive. I found a food plan that works for me & doesn't taste awful.
My original goal was 20. Now that I'm here & I see what I see, I need to make a new goal. Come join me!
