My Weight Loss Journey

I am so very happy today because when I finally decided to get serious about losing weight I was 235lbs.  My blood pressure was skyrocketing. I had gotten down to 227lbs and I seemed to linger there.  Since May 13, 2013 I have lost 17.6lbs.  I will say WOW!  How did I do it? Well, a certain stressor was removed. I started eating a whole lot better, getting plenty of exercise (primarily Zumba and strength training).  I drink a whole lot more water.  And it has paid off.  My goal is to lose 23 more pounds by September.  Let's see if I make it. Right now this is what I am doing.
