Day 56:197.5

Do you ever have those moments when you suddenly realize 'Holy Crap, I've lost 18 lbs!' I had that moment this morning. For a second my heart skipped a beat, not in excitement, but in total fear. Can I keep doing this? Will I fail again? What if I succeed? What do I do then?

If you think of it all at once you will go into a panic.. the trick is to take one decision at a time. Notice I didn't say one day at a time. The trick to losing weight is to make every thing you do count. Throughout the day you make hundreds of decisions... what to eat, what to do, what to think, what to say... Be thoughtful of what you are doing. Choose healthy food over junk, choose the park instead of the TV, choose positive thinking over negative thinking, and say " I CAN DO IT TODAY!" over anything else!

Today marks my 2nd month... and I am excited to see what the next 2 months will bring me. (Hopefully into a size 12!)

I want to give everyone a big THANK YOU for being my support, my inspiration and my friends.

It really is about one day at a time, isn't it? We are only given one day at a time for a reason I suppose.

Congratulations! 18 pounds is a great accomplishment.
