Here we go again! (Picture added)

I woke up this morning and jumped on the scale... and cried. I'm almost there! Just a measly 6 oz separate me from being on the other side! I am so pumped up today knowing this that I have been literally jogging to my car. Jogging to my front door of work. Just bouncing around as though I am tigger from Winnie the Pooh.
It's crazy what a high I get by seeing these changes. I'm bound and determined to keep it up. I've lost basically 20 lbs so far... and it's been a breeze. I gave up my number one culprit (soda) and by doing so... I have more energy. My skin looks better, my anemia has improved, My clothes are fitting loose. I don't get the headaches I used to get. No heartburn. It's an amazing feeling of freedom!
I work two jobs now... so a lot of my time is consumed with working... so, I haven't been able to go to the gym as much as I'd like. So, instead I've been doing little things at home to improve my health. We have weights at home, so I've been lifting weights when I get off of work. Doing a couple sit-ups or crunches. Or, just take a walk around my block.
At my first job, I upped my walk I take. Usually we only walked one round back and forth to the end of my floor. It's about a half mile worth. We upped it to walking it 3 times in a 15.
And, when possible, I hit up the gym. I've been mostly sticking with the treadmill. Since, I'm trying to get my heart into it before I venture out to other machines.... but, I can see and feel the changes happening and I couldn't be happier!
A few years ago, I couldn't wrap my head around it all. I don't think I was ready or motivated. Now, I'm feeling more alive and ready to have the best life I could possibly ever have for myself. I deserve it.
