I haven't talked much about my weight loss journey lately for fear of boring people to tears. Its been a long, trying journey but oh so good at the same time. I am just about half way. I have lost 24 pounds so far. I still can't believe it. I look at the scale and sometimes think it is lying to me. The numbers keep going down.
People keep asking me what diet I am on or what I am doing. The funy thing is that I eat whatever I want! I'm just a little more careful about it. I watch my calories and eat more fruits and veggies. I've also been working out a lot. Anywhere from 4-6 days a week. Occasionally less. I go to the gym even when I don't want to because I know when I am done, I will feel fantastic. I use www.livestrong.com to track my calories. It is a totally free sight. I also have a good friend, aka the "Drill Sgt." that asks about my weekly weigh-ins, gives me workout ideas and know which buttons to push to really make me kinda mad which in turn makes me work harder to prove him wrong :) He knows this, I know this.. and I always fall for it.
I have 26 pounds to go to reach my goal. The road looked long at the beginning but the closer I get, the more excited I am. I see small differences in myself but nothing too major yet. Except in a couple pictures I have seen of myself I swear my head is getting smaller?!?! I have more confidence and many of the self-esteem issues I had in the past have dwindled into nothing. I still don't want to see pictures of myself though. I am sure I will get there. I just can't believe this is happeneing.. it is really happening. Pinch me, I must be dreaming.
