Hey, I’m There!

When I first decided to embark on this weight loss journey I was so scared of failure that I wouldn’t even set a weight loss goal.  I knew a healthy weight for my 5′ 4″ frame was 140, so that number was in the back of my mind; however, at 231 pounds 140 was 90 pounds away and that was too daunting a task to even consider.  I knew I needed to focus on a smaller number to lose for the first while. So, I split up my weight loss goal into three mini goals of 30 pounds each, figuring if I could reach the first goal of 201, then there was hope of reaching the second and so on. 
About a month after starting my journey I found some pictures from the only other time in my adult life when I’d lost weight.  I even posted about how I was going to put them out to remind myself that I could do this.  I also took them and made this little 4×6 digi scrapbooked page to encourage myself.
I weighed about 170 in these pictures. 
This weekend I realized….I did get there.  It might’ve taken just under three years, but I did it.  I finally got back to the smallest I’ve been in my adult life.  I remember feeling so light back then, and I do feel like that now, but I know I’ve made permanent changes this time around that will help me to never gain the weight back. 
Now I look forward to pressing on to the last mini/ultimate goal.  It’s not over yet! 🙂

    Love, love, love, love it!!! You are 60 pounds down, that is such an achievement. I hope you don't just feel lighter, but also so proud of yourself. I love the pictures and how you made a digi page – that is a brilliant idea!

    Congratulations Leah, not only have you lost weight and look fantastic, but you have gained a whole new outlook on life so I know you will make it to goal number 3 and successfully stay there xx
