It's been 2 months since I began changing our lifestyle to a healthier one, and I have lost 20 lbs! It's wonderful. Although, I don't really "look" different yet, as I had gained that same 20 lbs in the past year, I do "feel" different.
I keep reminding myself that it's a lifestyle change for the long haul, not just a quick fix. In fact I don't even say the word "diet". It's not. I just want to begin to live in a healthier manner for myself and my family. I want my children to make better choices NOW not later like me.
I'm living it out one day at a time, and considering all mistakes as learning opportunities.
