In mid April I weighed in at 255 pounds. I looked at myself in the mirror and said "Self, we need to do something about this." And my journey began. Today I am happy to report that I am 225.

Here is my secret.

1. The want to and determination.

2. Water!

3. Walking. I walk alot! During the week I walk about 6-8 miles daily. Today I walked 20. I shoot for 10,000 steps a day during the week, and 30,000 on Saturday. I yoga too. I try for every other day but to be honest I focused more on the walking this week.

4. Protein shake in the morning, light lunch to tie me over, big meal is supper by 7pm.

5. Your support! Could do it without the support of family and friends. The Facebook likes and comments are so appreciated.
