So, today I am going to reveal the "number" - I am going to get the monkey off my back and move forward with this journey.
|Sept 11 2010 - 232 pounds|
|February 2011 - 186 pounds|
There is obviously a difference between the two people in these pictures. The one on the right is wearing a real smile and is genuinely happy, that girl on the left was smiling on the outside but miserable on the inside. The changes I have made over the last several months have changed everything about me - inside and out. I look at the world differently and value my place in it more than ever before! And I now feel liberated from the "number" and ready to continue on with the journey.
Thank you to each and everyone of you that has supported me on this journey. And thank you to every person that I have turned to for inspiration - I value all of you each and every day and you are critical to the success I have had and will continue to have.
So, here's to losing those last 20 pounds and maintaining this healthy lifestyle I have created! Phew! That feels good!
