40 Pounds Gone (238)

I am proud and pleased to report that I have lost FORTY pounds. What I am doing IS working. I am so happy and excited. Just two and a half weeks ago I was frustrated and worried because I had not lost weight in months. But since then I have lost TEN pounds. It isn't because I am motivated, either. Over the last few days my motivation has been Zero. I didn't wanna. I didn't care much. I was tired and my knees hurt and I wanted to sit around and veg and eat chips and pizza. But I counted calories anyway. I ate healthy anyway. I rode my bike anyway. Why? Because I made a commitment. I am committed to losing this weight and getting healthy. And when motivation wanes, commitment stands solid.

I took my measurements today as well. Along with 40 pounds, I have lost:

1/4" off each wrist
1 1/4" off each upper arm
2" off each thigh
3/4" off my neck
4" off my bust
3" off my waist
5" off my hips
and a partridge in a pear tree.

I intend to see a lot more pounds and inches come off in the future, with a lot of work and a rock solid commitment.

New update pictures coming soon!

Hard work and resolve = pounds off! Great job, I know you must feel so wonderful health-wise AND when you look in the mirror.

AND you are absolutely right when you said it has nothing to do with motivation. It really is just about DOING IT no matter what - AND you did... You are!!! CHEERS!
