Well...we've been at it for 3 months now...eating right, being active, working HARD. There is only one week left in the Biggest Loser competition at work...and I'm proud to say I'm down 40.8 pounds! As of last week, I was in the lead...but only by less than a percent. I know I will need to continue to work hard...not only through next week, but through the next months and years. I am fully aware that this cannot just be a diet...that it needs to be a lifestyle change.
I can do things now, at 40 pounds lighter, that I couldn't before. Maybe it would be more accurate to say, that I didn't want to before. 40 pounds is a lot to lug around...but now, I play outside with my kid, which I have sat on the sidelines and watched for far too long.
I still have a long ways to go...but I'm getting there!
