Default 40 pounds!

I know that compared to some of the wonderful success stories here it isn't that much, but I just wanted to share. I have lost forty pounds since I started back in January. I just wanted to say that it's amazing what you can do with the right mindset.

I am no longer obese and although I still have a long way to go I know now that it is achievable. Stick with it guys and gals, it truly is worth it!

Thumbs up

Don't ever say ONLY 40 pounds! When you started out you had all of that hanging on you...now you don't! Excellent! In January, when you actually started, I talked about getting serious! I thought I had...not so much! Now it's May and I'm still plugging along toward my 40.

Congratulations!
