Still Losing and Feeling Great--Yeah!

Just a quick update on my physical fitness journey. As of this morning, I have lost 31 pounds and am feeling awesome! I am on a non-stop train to a healthier me and the horses are very happy about it too! Tonight, after a day-long trip on the St. Lawrence River, I went out to visit the horses and just hopped on Fosse bareback (with halter and lead) and took him for a spin! We rode freestyle all over and had a blast. He did great and so did I. I am feeling so much more in harmony and balance these days...nothing tastes better than this feeling feels...I am truly getting there and can see a positive, happy me again.

LOL you are funny. I am hoping that by the time you visit I'll be at my 20% target (or close) which would mean a 52 pound loss...wish me luck! :)
