So happy for you, friend! All it takes is that first step... a commitment... a promise to yourself! This year I’ve changed my mindset. I’m not obsessed about the scale. I’m taking cues from my clothes, and how I feel when I work out & run. I’m getting stronger! I eat healthy, but allow myself grace and balance. You CAN do this! I believing you & you have so much amazing support here! Sounds like you’ve made a good healthy choice on how to go about this... hugs girl!
