I just realized something..

I just had a pretty cool realization....

My last weigh in was 149.6, which is a great weigh in, and it puts me right where I was when I graduated High School 8 years ago.

So it got me to thinking, I gained 17 pounds in a matter of 8 years, so about 2.5lbs a year, although I will admit, it was much more in the latter years. So I sit here and think about the 17lbs I've lost, and it took me 8 years to gain it, and only 6 months to lose it, I think thats awesome. Some people get so frustrated with not losing weight that quick, but god am I just happy it didn't take me 8 years to lose it!

17 pounds in 8 years ...it just creeps up on you and you hardly notice it until one morning you wake up and say,"Where did that roll come from?". And thank your lucky stars that you were motivated to act on it now rather than accepting it and dealing with a much larger problem later...I know that problem all too well. Congrats on your bright outlook and confidence!
