I hit 180 pounds on August 8th 2013. This was the first time that I actually felt like I had achieved something. I was feeling much better and I was once again excited to be losing weight and motivated to continue to do so. I was back on track! When I reached this milestone this is what I wrote:
"These last ten pounds were much harder to lose. I stalled at 183.5 for over a month due to Julia's wedding and my birthday. I also pulled a muscle in my lower back fairly early on which made it almost impossible to exercise. I am at the point now where if I eat something unhealthy I feel sick the rest of the ady. We went to Red Robin and I ate half a hamburger and felt so sick to my stomach! Eating healthier is so much better, I don't crave greasy food (Sugar? Yes. Pizza? Yes. but French Fries and hamburgers, etc. No) So I'm making progress. When I eat right I feel good, and I have more energy. The stairs in my house don't seem like an impossible task anymore. Being sleep deprived from Chloe means I am still tired a lot, but eating well helps a lot. Also, if I limit my splurging on sugar to one day a week it helps me stay on track and to not feel deprived. I can't wait until I am 170! I am going to make sure I reach that next goal faster than this last one."
So as you can see I had a lot of good ideas once I reached this weight, and I was preparing to make my big discoveries about eating healthier and going on my sugar free challenge.
