Reached My Goal Today!!!!
I'm so excited, thought is share with everyone! Long time coming, hard work and determination DOES pay off!!
On to maintenance!!
Congratulations! You earned it!
Fantastic!!!!! What would be your best advice please?
The best advice I can give is to just stick with it! I started about 18 months ago and lost a total of 85 pounds. I was determined to lose it before menopause set in (I'm 47 and was concerned about my metabolism slowing down, making it more difficult to lose as I got older). I had my ups and downs, my plateaus and my "bad" days, but i would just get right back to working at it.
Coming to the forums and reading other people's posts also helped me. I realized i wasn't alone, and they really gave me the boost I needed (not to mention some great advice) when I needed it.
Just stick with it. Exercise (makes a BIG difference). You'll have good days and you'll have bad days, but you WILL get there.
And it is SO worth it!
congratulations L :)
That is an amazing accomplishment and you should be most proud of yourself!
good luck with maintenance! you can do it!
Wow! What an encouragement to me. I'm starting my second week and have 50 to lose. I'm going to do this!
Congratulations! It's a lot of hard work but it certainly pays off doesn't it! You should feel very proud of your accomplishment.
