With 30 days left until I hit 30yrs, I can look back and reflect on the progress made to date with this challenge. Losing roughly 40lbs to date and maintaining that loss has been amazing. A year ago I would have laughed at you, had you told me I would lose 40lbs, and I would have said that goal was completely unrealistic. Today, my attitude has changed. I am confident that I can do this weight loss journey and I feel equipped to take it on.

A goal was set for me, by a Health Professional, to have my final weight to reach 175lbs. This is based on my body composition and is a number that I’d also be comfortable with. A short term goal was also set for next year (November 2012) of getting it under 200lbs…. but I’m going to take this to the max and push for that goal by the end of the countdown.

I can do it.

That’s roughly 15lbs loss in one month. It’s going to take effort and focus, but that’s nothing new at this point. I need to get in my daily workout and continue to watch what I’m eating (especially during the Holiday season). So if you catch this on Facebook or stubble upon it in WordPress … ask me how its going. I’d be happy to be held accountable and glad to share with you.

Thanks Friends and Family for all your support to date. I look forward to keeping you updated on the progress and final results.
