I stepped on the scale yesterday at the gym and was elated. I currently weigh the same that I weighed back in October 2006 when I lost about 25 pounds very rapidly in a very unhealthy way. This time around I have lost 38 pounds and have done it slowly just with exercising and trying to be smarter about the food that I put into my body. I am currently the healthiest I have been in my adult life. I am very proud of myself!
