Doctor's appointment
 
Well today I went to my checkup and for the first time I wasn't afraid to hear what they had to say. My blood pressure was normal, my cholesterol was great and I lost another 8 pounds since last month. I feel great and I'm so glad it's working. To be honest I'm so stoked that I walked a block extra to catch the bus today. :)

Sounds like your efforts are paying off big time! Congratulations on the good news. :)

Well done on the fantastic news. You must be feeling on top of the world. L

Awesome, keep it up. 8 lbs a month is 96 lbs a year.

Well Done!! Congratulations- its good to notice that not only can weight loss do wonders for our self esteem and confidence it also has huge benefits to our health which is the most important. I was always big but especially after my first pregnancy and getting involved in a bad relationship. I lost all pride in myself but i met somebody who made me feel a million dollars even though i was reaching 17stone!!!
Anyway what im trying to say i that i didnt put 100% into losing weight until my dad suffered a heart attack (luckily he got through it)!! Then all of a sudden i knew it was time to lose the weight for my health being reason #1- the size 12 jeans that followed were just an added bonus!
