Back in September, I made a goal to lose 15 lbs by my birthday which was yesterday (2/26). I made my goal very conservative because I know that I tend to lose weight pretty gradually. But I am happy to announce that I hit my goal & am now 15 pounds lighter than I was on Sept. 1st!!!! Yipppeee! I have about 10 more lbs to lose to get to my "happy weight". Now I know I can do it & I am no longer making excuses or giving up! I CAN DO IT.....and so can you if you really make up your mind to do it. Trust me....if I can do it then YOU can do it!!! :) Good Luck with ALL your goals this year!
