I weighed myself today and I was so excited to see I had reached another milestone. Last year my lowest weight was 270 pounds. I wanted so badly to make it below the 270 point but life threw me a few curve balls and instead I gained 20. Since then I have taken control, lost the 20 I gained plus more. I am now at 267. I have never shared the actual number of my weight because I was so ashamed but now that I am making progress with losing I am now proud to share my success.
At my heaviest I was 348. That was when I got my wake up call. I promised myself I would not allow the scale to reach 350. Today I stand 81 pounds lighter. Yes it took 5 years but I have learned a lot along the way. I vowed to make this year my year of big loss. I am so happy. I used to dread stepping on the scale but now I absolutely love it.
