Do you know what today is less than a few days from the end. I can see the finish line and I am so happy to see it. As I stated earlier I am exhausted at the extra thought it takes to plan a meal however it has gotten easier as I have gone along.
Not to mention I have seen results and if that doesn't encourage a person I don't know what will. If you feel your pants fitting different and see small changes what your doing can't be wrong. I feel better and if you feel better you look better!

3 more days and this journey is over. I will not miss it but I will follow the plan maybe not as stringent but I will maintain a healthy meal plan, regular exercise and eat my favorites in moderation. I believe that was my main problem. I didn't eat in moderation and overate in the not so healthy food groups. I have never eaten more fruit and vegetables in my life in such a short period of time then the last 30 days. I have enjoyed making new smoothies and trying a few new dishes. I know that I will still be able to eat out but I don't need to overeat and I don't need to wash it down with a gallon of sweet tea. I don't think it will be hard to maintain because I feel so much better now than I did before.
Thank you for following my journey and in a few more days all this accountability will be over.
Lastly on a good note as icing on the cake. My daughter tried on her new school clothes and a few pair of pants didn't fit her. I snuck off with them and wiggled into them. They were a challenge to get over my calf muscles but I was able to pull them up and button them. I didn't even have to slather in butter or lay on the bed to do it. With a little more work they will not be as snug as they are now but getting them on is the first step. Yeah, me!!
