Weight Loss Wednesday and Junk Food

Crap - it's Thursday!  I did it again, but anyway...

I did great - lost 2.6 and am about 3ish pounds away from the least amount I have ever weighed as an adult.  My initial goal in January was to get here (well, three pounds from here) but I didn't give myself a deadline.   I am beyond excited and hope I can get to my ultimate goal before my wedding.  Let's see if I can do it.  What I have realized though, is that even if I don't make my ultimate goal by October, I can still accomplish it AFTER.  It's not like the game will be over then and I can give up.  This is an ongoing goal and effort. 

What also makes me realize that I am really making positive changes is that this realization makes me feel good and not oppressed.  Knowing that I will have time to work on my weight loss and fitness goals past October is almost a relief.  If I don't make my goal, at a minimum, I will have lost over 35 pounds, and I am very proud of that.

On a side note...today is National Junk Food Day.  Ha!  You can take the girl out of the kitchen, but...

You're amazing. WAY TO GO.

More than 35 lbs? The HEALTHY way? You have so much to be proud of.
