CONGRATULATIONS! You made it to the 30-day mark! It's time for your third progress check, weigh-in and current measurements. Before we get to that, we want to say how proud of you we are. The entire LIVESTRONG.COM team is cheering you on for coming this far! It wasn't always easy, but it was worth it.
Over the past four weeks, you've really put in some serious work, and now it's time to see your results. Step on your scale with pride and confidence. You're stronger and healthier than when you started this journey. You should be excited because your journey has just begun!
Remember, don't get too hung up on the number on your scale. It's just a number that indicates where you are today. If that number is in line with your goal, then celebrate!
However, if you haven't yet reached your goal weight, don't be discouraged. Everyone responds differently, but you're well on your way. Celebrate your progress thus far and use that number on the scale to motivate you as you forge ahead.
Keep going with the new healthy habits you've created — exercising and tracking your food with the LIVESTRONG.COM MyPlate Calorie Tracker for desktop and for iOS and Android devices — and be consistent. Remember, you didn't start this journey for a short-term fix; you committed to making lasting changes as part of a healthy new lifestyle.
We're here for you and we've got plenty of ways to keep you engaged for the next leg of your journey. Whether it's taking your fitness to the next level with our STRONGER workouts (try these 10 free workouts for a sneak peek) or trying our 30-Day Abs Challenge and/or 30-Day Push-Up Challenge, the entire LIVESTRONG.COM team and community are here to support you.
