This last week was an awesome week!!! Had a great weigh-in, left Friday a.m. to come down to NC to my daughter's house, work was interesting but good; all in all - awesome!
I am now under 200 lbs and am only 4 lbs. away from 1/2 way to my goal. I never thought I could do this - I have never been able to get past 10-12 lbs. on my own. So I am so thankful, happy, blessed to have been able to participate in this program. What makes it even better is that my daughter, who has not my seen me since last Thanksgiving, noticed right away!! YAY..... all the hard work is showing!!
Thank You Laura Kessel for offering this opportunity!! For those who have not yet made the progress you were looking for - Please - do not give up!! Stay positive, keep at it and results will happen. I speak from what I have experienced myself. It's tough some days, but pays off in the end. Here's to a good "last month" of the Lighten-Up for everyone who is still in - Let's all give it one last big HOO-AH !! Have a GREAT 4th of July!
