The Number 50!
Yesterday I mentioned that I am currently chasing the next milestone for my mission. And guess what my friends........ I caught it!! I was extremely excited this morning to wake up, roll out of bed, and head to the scale. As I walked into the living room where my scale resides within my apartment, I couldn't tell if I was more anxious, excited, or a little nervous. I have been doing so well since I switched up my workout routine and I was hoping that today would be the day that I made it to the next step of my mission. So, like I always do in the morning, I walked up to the scale, took off my clothes, took a deep breath, and stepped up. And all that I hoped would happen, actually came true! I weighed in at 251.2 lbs, bringing my official weight loss amount to 50.8 lbs since the start of my mission, 108 days ago!
It always feels good when I get positive results out of working hard and having a lot of determination. But it feels even more amazing when I set out to achieve a goal and I actually reach it. And that is exactly what happened this morning. One of my personal goals of this mission was to loose at least 50 lbs. And now that I have reached it, I can move onto the next goal. I can honestly say that it is an honor to share this achievement with all of you. You all constantly send much needed support, motivation, and inspiration my way. All I can say is, on to the next goal!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
