Yes my friends I have FINALLY reached one of my goals. So far I have lost 7.5 lbs which means I can finally buy my first treat, nail polish! I am also well on my way to my next prize... treating myself to a movie.
Even though I weighed myself today instead of Tuesday (cause I haven't been to the gym since last Tuesday), I had a feeling that I would be able to record a loss. I tried to chill out about the whole weight loss thing and just concentrated on trying to eat right and even when I slipped I didn't beat myself up over it. I worked like a mad dog this week and I think that had something to do with it plus Aunt Flow went back home after an extremely annoying visit.
This was just the boost I needed to keep my positive energy flowing and to get me excited about working out again.
Thanks for all of your words of encouragement. They mean the world to me! :)
