I did it!!


After 8 weeks of nutritious eating, hard work-outs, and a lot of determination, I met my weight goal!

I stepped on the scale for my final weigh-in (for Lighten the Load contest), and I saw these beautiful numbers:


I haven't been in the 120's in a very, very long time.  In fact, 9 weeks ago, I hadn't seen the 130's in a very, very long time. 

You know what's awesome?  I fulfilled New Year's Resolution # 1:  lose 15 lbs., which--at that point--was to get to 130. 

I will post a pic as soon as I can, but suffice to say, I feel so good.  Do you?

Oh, by the way, as I ate a salad I had made with green leaf lettuce, roasted chicken, avocado, strawberries, apples, and balsamic vinaigrette spray, I thought, "If you get to eat this kind of delicious goodness, why wouldn't you want to diet?"  The key has been finding things I love to eat and balancing my diet and portions.  There's nothing I can't have; I just choose what I really want!
