    I Am A Loser

    When I started my weight loss journey, I was happy with the thought of weighing less than 300 pounds. I sheepishly set my goal and was quite sure I'd never see it. As the weight started to drop, I became more optimistic that I'd weigh somewhere in the low 200's. For most people, that sounds like a lot to weigh, but when you started at 384 pounds, that's a reasonable goal.

    Most of you know that I've been working out voraciously. I pushed myself beyond what I thought I was capable of, pushing through the pain. I was beginning to believe it was all for naught. I couldn't seem to get the scale to move, nor get my inches down. Something told me to stick with it.

    Imagine my surprise and excitement when I got on the scale this morning to see this:

    In case you are not a math wizard, that is a loss of 200 pounds!! Woo hoo!! My BMI (Body Mass Index) started at 62% and is currently 29.7% which means that I am no longer super morbidly obese. I'm just overweight. Can you tell I'm jumping up and down?!?!

    I continue to be amazed at what I can accomplish. When I see something I want to attain, I'm going to go at it for all I'm worth. This has been the most incredible journey to finding out what I'm really made of.
