Reasons To Be Excited

I’m excited because I lost 1.4 pounds this week taking me to 76.8 pounds. And I just realized that it is possible to lose 100 pounds by April 2 which will be my one year mark. If I don’t reach it, I’ll come very close so I’ve decided that I’m going to try!

I have been eating well and exercising for almost a year, but I could still improve in my eating. And that is precisely what I’m going to do starting now. I’ll never be perfect, but I know that if I do my best I’ll see amazing results. Just look back on the last several months!
My weight-loss journey began on April 2, 2009. And on April 2, 2010, I would love to say that I’ve lost 100 pounds by enjoying a healthy and satisfying lifestyle. Knowing that I’ve lost 77 is pretty awesome, and it’s only going to get better.
I cannot explain how or why I know this, but I absolutely know that I will reach my ultimate goal. And I already feel incredible about how far I’ve come.
What are your short-term goals? And how do you feel about your long-term goals?

    Yay!!! I'll be cheering for you "all the weigh"!!! :)) Corny, I know!

    My Short Term Goals are to lose 40 lbs by May. I started 3 weeks ago and am down 12 lbs. I have a feeling I am going to plateau soon and will have to step it up a notch!!!

    77 pounds – that is my goal, for now. I started my weight loss journey in May of last year and I'm at -58 pounds. I guess I'm just losing a little more slowly. But slow and steady is fine. 🙂 I really enjoy reading your blog. We have a lot of similarities. 🙂

    Congratulations!
    You have inspired me to try WW again…it did work the first time I tried but I don't think I was mentally ready for it to succeed.
    Thanks for being you!

    You are such an inspiration to me. Although I have totally stunk at blogging lately, I always read your posts. I, jointed Weight Watchers this past Tuesday, and made it past the first 3 days; and as having traveled this journey, you know those are very ruff days. My goal is to loose 50 lbs. by June 3rd. I hope that is realistic? Congrats on your success!!
