Turning Twenty

Any of you who have ever had trouble with their weight will understand when I say that there is usually an ominous number on that scale that you can never quite get under. As you gain and lose and gain again, the number itself may change, but the feeling never does. You look down and think, 'Geez, I've been doing so well, but I don't think I'm ever going to get below that.'.

Well, I have. I haven't been this successful at losing weight since I did Atkins for the first time 4 years ago. Granted, it's not all my hard work that's doing it, the Thyroid replacement pills I'm on have been working wonders.

I'm not starving or willingly depriving myself, just eating the foods that don't make me sick, and exercising for a few minutes every morning. It's been 2 months, and I've lost 20 pounds.

I'm feeling pretty good.

Congratulations girl! That's awesome. You make it sound like it was easy...but you have had to make some drastic changes to make it seem easy.
