As of today, I've officially lost 50 lbs since I started trying to lose weight again back in September. It's been an up and down process, but I feel much better. I remember telling someone 10 months ago that I had actually "walked half a mile last night!"
I'm still 60 lbs away from my target weight, so I'm not quite to the halfway point yet. At this point, making the end of this year's thong season is probably out of reach, but next summer everyone better just watch out.
