It was so worth the wait.
Sure, I have been sick. Sinus infections are famous for killing the flavor in all things that are to taste amazing. Despite the two weeks of not wanting to eat much of anything, my appetite came back with a vengeance. Despite a slice of Dairy Queen chocolate cookie dough Blizzard cake I had a loss this week that brought me to an important place.
I lost 1.2 lbs and MADE MY 10% GOAL!!
It is insane to me that it took 7 months to lose 20 lbs. I wanted to be so much further than this in my journey at this point. I'm not taking away from this milestone though- I knew that if I made it to this point, I could make it all the way to my final goal. I have another 40 lbs to lose and even though it could potentially take me another year to get there but today, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I AM GOING TO DO THIS!!
|On WW, I CAN DO BOTH!!|
What is the best thing about losing 20 lbs? People have noticed. My husband has noticed. I need new clothes. I'm wearing SHORTS. I'm okay with swimsuits (that may always be a work in progress). I ran for the first time in a month tonight and it doesn't feel like so much work.
I already feel like a new person. And I love it. (And I'm crying happy tears right now).
