I have reached my first MAJOR goal in my weight loss journey! I didn't think it would be this soon in the week just because yesterday I weighed myself and I was 201.2lbs. I thought for sure I wouldn't reach my goal until the end of the week just because my weight loss has been going a lot slower these days. But as always my body gave me quite a suprise this morning.

I went walking this morning with my mom and boyfriend (Bryan). We did about 2 miles on a trail...we had never gone to this trail before so we thought we would give it a try and it turned out to be a great walk. Much  more challenging than the walks we normally do so it was a good walk this morning. I definitely broke a nice sweat. The great part was that I was actually doing it, when I was heavier I would always moan and groan about exercising and now I can't live without it!

I know I know you don't want me to ramble on anymore you just want the numbers! haha ok so here they are and as promised a picture of the scale :o)

Thats right! I have reached ONEderland!!!

Starting Weight: 279.6lbs
Current Weight: 198.4lbs
Total Weight Loss to date: 81.2lbs

I can't even tell you how thrilled I am to be at this point! This was my first big goal met and now I am on to working towards my next major goal and I am so happy that I have such a great support system (all of you out there) to follow me on this journey and to be here with me every step of the way. I could not be more thankful for a greater group of people! You all inspire me everyday with everything that each and every one of you do out there. It keeps me going and it keeps me motivated and for that I can't thank you all enough!

Enjoy the rest of the week out there and as always, lets shed those extra pounds together!
