I am pleased to announce to the world that as of today, I have lost 20 pounds since the beginning of September! I can't tell you how pleased I am and how much I am enjoying it. I know that as the pounds come off, they will become increasingly more difficult. However for now, it is not difficult, necessarily, but just a matter of being diligent. I'm about a a size and a half smaller and so much more comfortable in my body than I was a few months ago. I enjoy getting dressed in the morning. I don't always feel like the fat girl in the room anymore. Ideally, I would like to lose another 20, but if I only go about 10 or 15 more, I'll be VERY happy with it. I'm 5'6" and by many accounts I should be closer to 135, but I think that 150 (which is 25 fewer pounds than I am now) would be where I would hit the floor of where I want to be. I'm sure if I starting training rigorously I could get closer to the 135, but I just don't have any desire to be THAT thin. I just want to get out of the "overweight" category.
Thanks to everyone who has sent words of encouragement and hope and support. It really has made a difference. Onward, and downward!
