Because I sure feel great when I'm done. Now to stretch and do some beadwork. Keep up the great work everyone.Had an awesome personal training session this morning and decided to go for a bike ride this evening. What a beautiful day. Started in April, down 8.8 lbs. Woo! I didn't cut anything out. I just started eating less. Slow and steady wins the race. I hope you all had a great day. Keep up the great work.Pork chops, brown rice (boiled with low sodium chicken broth)and cucumbers for supper tonight. Under 400 calories for a meal. Yes! Feeling good today. Even made some for my dad who has high cholesterol. You all are so inspiring, keep up the great work. 😀❤💪What a beautiful day. 🌞☀🌲🌳 I am on my 8th week of personal training and went for a 2.5 mile walk afterwards. Also, Day 2 no sweets besides fruit. I think it's causing headaches. Im usually reaching for the donut a day at work. Almost everyday someone brings in donuts. It's so difficult to say no. Then I was eating a bowl of cereal everynight. Sugar is my weakness. Hopefully this challenge helps me. You all are doing so well. Don't give up. We can do it! Take care of yourselves. 💪✌❤Received another photo from a friend from 2010. Wow. I didn't start my journey until last year in March. The right photo is October 2017. Me on the left was sad, alcoholic and I just plain didn't care about myself, or anything for that matter. I have been sober for 15 months. Wow, so I feel-good. Still have a long way to go. But I hope this inspires you all. You can overcome anything you put your mind too. Do it for yourself. Stay strong everyone. 💪❤✌✊Awesome! Went through my to small shelf in my closet. And 5 more pairs of jeans fit. Amazing! Feels like I have a whole new wardrobe.
