Well I cannot believe this challenge is close to coming to an end! I have learned a lot during this challenge. I have been working with an amazing partner and friend Monica B. Her determination has renewed my own spirit and fire and helped me push past some issues to get to my goal and keep losing weight.
I had an awesome super week. Probably one of the best weeks of this entire journey folks. Yes in case you missed it on Saturday I hit my big 100 pounds lost mark!!!!
I will be weighing in on Saturdays at Stacy's meeting so I will use that weight when I check in for challenges that week. So my weight this week was a nice even 152 pounds!!! When I began this journey 13 months ago I walked into Weight Watchers weighing 252.6 pounds. At my highest weight after having the baby I was 272 pounds. So I am pretty darn pleased with myself in less than 2 years I am down 120 pounds. According to my BMI I am *almost* there! 2 more pounds and I will be in my healthy weight range!!! There are no words that can honestly express how happy I am am.
This journey has brought me many challenges but I have come to meet them head on and focused and just kept plugging along. And I am committed to working hard now to maintain all of the work I have completed. I will keep training for races and keep working towards my next big goal, to run a full marathon this fall :)
Stay tuned for progress pictures coming later on this week ;)
