    I have no idea how but I lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks !

    ! I have really only started drinking more tea and no diet coke in the last 4 days as well as calorie counting. But that ain't 9 lbs worth! Tomorrow add shadow MMA !

    Found out I've lost nine pounds

    since February. I know it's probably not much, but it's a start and enough to keep me going until I reach my goal. Literally the scale made my day lol

    Had to giggle last night.

    My hubby and I took a brisk walk and he was "done" before I was even close. He said "man I'm outta shape, I need to start working out with you". It will be nice to have a workout partner.

    I was that fat kid back in 12th grade.

    And then my brother's marriage was fixed 3 months later. People looked at me and said, "Nope! Not going to happen! or " You're not that good at it!". Well to hell with that, I got my lazy *** off and stopped using the lift to my flat (15th floor) I got home climbing those stairs...

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...
