To see how far I've come I'm letting everyone see exactly where I started (sigh). I had already lost about twenty pounds between August and November 2009 before I seriously started working out. I'm sure you can imagine what that additional twenty pounds looked like lol. I've also dropped another ten pounds since the July picture.
Once I reach my goal I'll post my final stats and results. I stay encouraged and motivated by the folks telling me that I am inspiring them to make changes. The more weight I lose the more I feel like it's okay to put myself out there. I'm not trying to get "super model small" I'd just like to get to the most comfortable place in my own skin.

I didn't think about being the size I was when I graduated from high school (140), I thought about where I felt most comfortable in my adult life. I thought about the time in my life when I had the most energy and zest. I thought about when I had been the most happy. The more time I spent thinking about it, the number became apparent to me...165.
This number isn't etched in stone and who knows where I'll eventually land and maintain? Coming up with a guideline and goal was necessary for my success. You cannot start if you have no idea where you would like to go and eventually end up. I'm thankful now for that huge number I had to face to get me on my way.
