40 pounds is huge CONGRATULATIONS.
40 days is a good time frame because you can see a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. Just when the going gets rough, it's as if you are half way through or more,, so my will power gets a work out.
Thank you for being an example, before we even begin, as to what commitement and discipline are, and how they work to make us better people, body, mind and soul.
