“I thought I would never lose the weight…”

What do I see when I look at the pictures?

I see someone who accomplished their goal.  I see someone who pushed beyond her limits and now is happy in her new body.  I used to think that I would never be able to lose the fat and was pretty unhappy about how I looked.  But once the process started and because of the direction and encouragement you provided I grew more confident.  It really did feel like it was impossible to change.  But I believed and it happened.  Along with the weight loss I had to deal with the issues that caused me to overeat.  Those issues are melting away as well.

I feel absolutely wonderful about where I am at now.  I know I could still lose a few pounds.  But I can find clothes that fit and I have been getting tons of compliments.  I really don’t like that much attention but it is good to have some validation.

Now I feel like the person I was always meant to be (physically).   I also walk around with my badge of success (lower weight).  It speaks volumes about my fortitude.

But I know my journey is not over yet.  I am in it for the rest of my life.

Thanks so much for your direction, support and caring.
