Weight Loss Motivational Quotes: What happens when you lose 36 pounds…
It’s been 66 days since I started my weight loss journey and along with the loss of pounds I’ve learned some pretty valuable lessons as well as reach certain milestones along the way. While we tend to focus on the number on the scales as a measure of success I’ve come to realize that there is more to the number rather it’s all about the whole process; the transformation.
As I began to think about the journey and what it has taken in the past 66 days to get where I am and be excited about continuing the journey and making it a lifelong lifestyle change I began to make a list of “ahh haa” moments along the way thus far. Some of the items may seem trivial while others a big deal. For me, they are all a big deal and I celebrate each one as a small victory against the demon of food addiction and the sweetness of the success I have had so far. I find that making lists is a great way to visualize or keep track of the significant parts of the journey; I hope my list will inspire you to make a change in your lifestyle. Living a positive life filled with great health, great friends, family and a desire to make a difference has become a priority for me and as a result I have made some pretty awesome discoveries.

Moving my seat closer to the steering wheel was not only pretty awesome but a great reminder that I must continue on the journey.
