February 1,2002

Wow, the first of February. When I started back in October I thought about how long this journey to the new me would take...Months was what reverberated within my mind. I thought oh well it took you more than months to get here..more like 45 years. I worried about Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas,weekends..etc.etc. They have all come and gone and I managed to make it through and not lose sight of where I was going. I am 61 pounds thinner and have lost a total of 57.75 inches. I have lost 6.5 inches from my chest,9 inches from my waist and 10.25 inches from hips alone.
To me it just seems incredible, the time has passed,I have not suffered nor felt deprived and there is an end in sight to the first phase of this goal. It is now much scarier to think about maintaining the weight(but that will be a whole different entry).
So to those of you who are starting out, and to those of you who seem to be losing focus,just remember the time will pass despite you, and the choice is yours you can be thinner and healthier four months from now, or you can be stuck in the same rut.
I remind myself daily that this is not a race, but a journey to a happier healthier me..
