Pounds are GONE!

So remember at the beginning of Lent, I had a final six pounds to lose before I reached my goal? Well, found out today that I'VE REACHED IT! Around the start of the New Year I made a list of goals, and published them for 'the world' to see, and one of the goals was to be under a certain weight. Then at Lent, I changed my diet even a little more with this post, in order to reach that goal quicker. And it happened today!!

So wanna know some total poundage lost? I though so. Since Lent began on March 9, I've lost 7 pounds. Since my New Year's post in January, I've lost 16 pounds. And since I first started doing Zumba and working out, I've lost a total of 27 pounds!!

Ladies and Gentlemen - this is a HUGE deal for me. And I'm really excited about it. And I'm actually very proud of myself for being so determined about it!

A tiny celebration will be had this weekend, because let's be honest, I am very seriously craving some delicious chocolate cake or something. I'm not going to break my Lent diet still, but I AM going to enjoy something a little 'off limits' on Saturday night. So those of you who I'm hanging with on Saturday, be prepared for something delicious!

Oh, and my new goal? Another 6 pounds by Easter, since the first 6 went away so quickly :)

Thanks to all you who've kept motivating me, and supporting me. I love all of yall so much!
