Down To The Wire For a Photo Finish!

My 1st goal date is this Thursday morning, July 2nd.  I set my goal to lose 15 pounds.  Each morning between now and Thursday I’ll step on the scale, probably exhale… then hold my breath and look down at the digital read out.  My Goal is 175.0

I am very confident I will not only make my goal but exceed it.  I only have 0.3 to go!

Currently I’m right at 175.3

What is amazing to me is how easy it has been to lose 15 pounds in basically a month.  I’ve never done so well losing weight in my entire life. Not even on Weight Watchers (WW) have I done this well in such a brief period of time.  I feel good and I’m thrilled to be getting the fat off! If you told me 2 months ago I would be looking at 175 I probably would not have believed you, but here I am in 5 weeks.

This past Saturday I was invited to a workshop put on by TSFL Russ and Amanda McCann. Both have lost an incredible amount of weight. If you’d meet either of them on the street you would never know they were overweight. Their skin is tight and they look amazing. Which is very encouraging because I sure don’t want to drop a lot of weight and have excess skin- yikes.  They look tone and Amanda is rock hard from working out AFTER she lost her weight.

The workshop was extremely helpful and got me fired up to lose ALL my excess weight. For so long I thought I was just meant to be heavy. Call it genetics, bad eating habits, long hours what ever, it doesn’t matter.  I can see from the research and eating 5-1 TSFL meals every 2 ½ to 3 hours, the fat is melting right off me.

For the first time – I am actually thinking, I can be a normal weight and live a healthy active life.
