Good morning friends!

I only have a few minutes to write, but I am SO excited to tell you that I have reached my first goal!

As you'll see on the right hand side of the page, I have reached my first weight loss goal of 2010! 5%, or 11lbs!

I'm really excited to share this news with you. I am feeling healthier and even though it has taken [what seems like] a LONG time to get to this place, and even though I often feel like I can't see a difference yet, I am REALLY excited. :)

I think the most exciting part is knowing that I have been able to be consistent in my new eating habits over the last 12 weeks, and that I have "kept it off" the whole time - rather than losing 4 or 8 lbs for an event and then gaining it right back plus a little extra.

Hooray!  (Also, I know that in some pictures it is starting to show, so that makes me feel good)

Well, I've set my next weight short term loss goal, which is another 5% target. My big picture goal is to lose the 26 remaining lbs before my brother gets married in September, which is about 23 weeks away. If I keep up my slow and steady pace, I should be right on track at his wedding.

I've also started taking "Spin Class" at the fitness center on campus, which I will write about soon - on a day when I am not already 15 minutes late getting ready for work.

Just wanted to share the exciting news with you! Look for an updated short-term weight loss ticker with the new goal later this week!
And thanks for all your support!

Tiffy :) #1:Congratulations! You are doing such a great job! You made it through the hardest part of keeping it up at the beginning when results are slow (they say it can take a woman 6weeks before seeing results). #2 (this is for K-Stew): You look HOT!! Your outfit is adorable and you really look happy and fabulous!

Thanks for your kind words and encouragement, friends! It has been great knowing that even though I'm not going to a weekly WW meeting, I have my own little support group here on the web and at my school.

:) I am blessed beyond measure!
Love you!
