Here we are into week 9 now. Week 8 results are up! BAM!!
We have a new top three! Nancy is in the lead. Dr. Marshall and Dr. Park are EXACTLY tied for 2nd, and Hector is in 3rd. GREAT job you guys! We are doing awesome! And I got into the 2%’s this week! So proud of that.
So I was trying to think of what to put in this blog post today. I think I just wanted to share some before/after photos I found on youtube. There are a lot of weight loss before/after stories on there, which is really motivational to me. So many other people struggle with this, too. It is comforting to know I am not alone in this effort to get healthy. I have lost 46.5 pounds so far. I didn’t ever know that I could get this far. I have failed so many times but I kept believing in myself a little more each time I tried to lose weight. It makes my heart hurt when people tell me that this is something they can’t do, becuase I know exactly what that feels like, and I know that they are wrong. But it’s something you have to find for yourself, and it is not an automatic change. It’s all about your attitude. I know I have said it before. It doesn’t feel that simple, but it is. A positive thought can do so much good and people don’t realize that. They short change themselves by thinking they aren’t good enough. and thinking they aren’t strong enough to do this. You just have to keep pushing yourself past the limits that you haven’t gone before. YES it is scary at first, but a lot of the unknown is. I have a long ways to go to get to where I want to be as far as how I feel/look, but I know I will get there because I believe that I can make it happen for myself.

Let that motivate you to have an awesome week! 🙂
