I am a newbie

Postby Angeljo » June 7th, 2006, 6:43 am

Hi to everyone, My name is Angel and I started medifaston May 30,2006. i did research on it and decided that it sounded like a good plan. I am over diet pills that just give me more health problems. When I started I weighed in at 233 and as of this mornings weigh in I am down to 223. I lost 10 lbs, this has me happy. I know some is water weight but I am still thrilled over the numbers. I am also one that has a daily obsession with the scale and I have made a vow to myself to try and not step on the scale again until next Tuesday. I know I will have more dt's over that than I am food ;O). Congratulations to all the new people that has taken a step to get rid of the imposter that has taken over your life. 233/223/ 1st goal 185

Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement. It is nice to hear so many motivational phrases. I am really in this for the big win. I just want to be able to look in the mirror and see the real me staring back. I want to do this for me but also for my girls. I have a 16 year old that is so sweet , she is always encouraging me and telling me that I can do it. I want to prove to her that she is right. I can do it! I want her to be able to see me fit and healthy. My goal to myself last year was that I would be fit and forty. I have always taught my daughters that if you set a goal that you keep going untiil you reach that goal. I feel like such a hypocrite because over the years thay have seen me going for my goal only to stop before I reach it. I will take this one day at a time until my goals are met. Conratulations to everyone that has met their goals and to all that are climbing to reach theirs. Thanks for hearing me pout :O).
