The end is close at hand!! The end of 6 mos. of Lighten Up. But that does not, by any way, mean that I am ending my weight loss journey!!!! I am so very close to my 1/2 way point to my desired goal weight. I have this!! I will, by the start of Lighten Up next year, either be all the way down to my goal weight OR be at least within 5-10 lbs. of it. Boot camp is in my daily routine now; healthier eating is the norm; being more aware of my overall health is paramount. Lighten Up has been a well read chapter in my book of life and there will be many good lessons learned and remembered when this chapter has ended. I am so thankful that I chose to participate in this program and I am also proud of myself for sticking with it and achieving what I have.
To all who participated: I hope you all had a memorable experience with Lighten Up and I also hope that even if you didn't achieve what you wanted to, don't give up. Your goals, no matter whether it's the weight loss or something else, ARE attainable. With a little perseverance, want and hard work, those goals can be met. I am an "in progress" example!
