I have caught up to you, Sir. :-)
By some miracle, I managed to have a nearly 5 pound loss this week--4.8 pounds. This was my best week ever, which I cannot understand given that I a) did not track 3 days; b) had pretty much whatever I wanted within reason; and c) didn't get a lot of trackable exercise.
I am now in the 200's for the first time in 2 1/2 years, that I can remember. I have no intention of ever seeing the 300's again. When I started out, I weighed 340 pounds on the dot, and when I saw that number, I thought I would faint. But that's what comes from lots of bad decision making, depression, and lack of activity.
I now weigh 296.6 and I hope to never come close to the 300 mark again. But the numbers have lost their power over me, which is why I am publicizing the numbers. I don't want to be ashamed of it and hiding, sneaking Twinkies in the dark. And coming from where I started from, I am proud to weigh 296.6. I never even considered the possibility I would lose 43.4 pounds so easily. I mean, yes, it's been work, but in the grand scheme of things, it hasn't been any harder than packing on 20 pounds earlier this year by laying in bed, crying and eating.
Onwards and downwards. Let's see if I can hit 50 pounds by mid-October.
