I've lost 43 pounds since March 30. And it feels incredible. Can really see the changes in my body, I'm not winded just walking to the car, can run around and play with my kids more ever before. Finally made it down to overweight, and even that makes me feel great. Not being considered obese is wonderful.
While I'm not always perfect in the way I do things, I'm still making a lot of progress and it motivates me to keep pushing forward. I'm only 14 pounds away from hitting my original goal of being under 150 pounds and today I actually feel like I can get there. It's nice being able to see the difference in myself and it's really nice when others I know can see the difference. I still have a way to go but I believe I'll get there.
Recently talked to someone who is trying to lose weight herself and she asked me how I was doing it, and I could actually give her advice on things that were working for me and some things she might try and I felt really good about it. It's amazing how far I've come in 5 months, can only imagine where I'll be in 5 more months.
