I've been working my butt off--literally! It's taken me close to six months, but I have lost 40 pounds, and you know what? I am proud of myself!

It hasn't been easy, but it's been worth it. I started at close to 235 pounds, and now I am down to 195. Seriously! I still have about 20 more pounds to go, but I'm thrilled to be in "one-derland." I weighed myself in Publix over the weekend, and I cried when I saw the results. I was SO HAPPY.

I went to American Eagle yesterday and was able to buy a romper straight off the rack. It may not seem like a big deal, but it was a milestone for me. I wasn't able to even shop there this time last year, and now I am CRUSHING IT.

I am proud of my progress so far. I hope that it can give some inspiration to any of y'all who need it today!
