I am thrilled and ecstatic to say that I have hit my next goal on my weight-loss journey. Holy MOLY! I got to my 2nd goal of losing 30 + pounds for a total of 52. I am trying to figure out where I am going to land. I am planning to continue to lose, but am going to let my weight training and cardio do the work for me. I was told last week that with my form and results that I am a natural weight lifter. Now I don't know if I was being fed a line, but was assured that this was the truth. So, consequently, I am even more motivated than I was before.
This morning I stepped on the scale and found numbers I doubt I have weighed since I got married. I am astonished and shocked still. A year ago I was depressed and disturbed by my weight, my knees, my heart palpitations and all kinds of other things. I started using my LoseIt! app with purpose on December 21. You know BEFORE New Years, as I am not a believer in New Year's resolutions. I did ok with it, but then discovered the online component of it, got myself some of the most rocking friends I could EVER have in my life. EVER. I have developed friendships with people from all over and I plan to go visit someday. With them and my husband and a few close friends here, I have accomplished something I never dreamed could ever happen. I still have some weight loss to go. If you know me, please don't tell me I have lost enough! I will never be too thin, as I love to eat too much! I am influenced by others for the good and the bad so easily..... I have a final goal in mind and I am next taking step one of two to get there.
I have almost retrained my brain to eat in normal amounts. There is still that urge to sit down with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter, but I ignore it now. I hope someday that little voice goes away, especially if there is a plate of cookies in front of me!
Thanks so much to all of my friends for their help. I truly wouldn't feel this way and look this way if it wasn't for all of you! I am truly blessed.
