crysharris wrote Stall broken! 2 days, 5 hours ago

This last stall has been so long; it was the second longest since surgery. But the scale finally moved. 

I'm also going back over my old food tracking from when my loss was steadier and tryi...

crysharris posted a discussion topic 2 weeks, 5 days ago

I made it to the one year mark. It's been a slow slog with mostly steady progress. I've learned a lot about myself. I've learned to enjoy physical activity for the first time in my entire life; only swimming though, I still don't run or walk or lift we

crysharris wrote One year 2 weeks, 5 days ago

Well... It's been a great year with some downs but mostly ups. I'm not at goal, which is what I wanted. But, I'm 100lbs down from my highest weight, I'm getting fit, and I am full of energy and det...

I'm just winning all over the place. I recently shared that I could wrap a standard white hotel towel completely around myself. Today, I ran out of belt holes on the belt I bought in February.

I just wrapped a standard, white hotel towel completely around myself for the first time in my adult life.

Hi All,

I'm a bit more than halfway to goal, so I started a fitness regimen to help me maintain my weight loss without reducing my calories too much. Seemed like sound reasoning.

I'm 4 weeks into my program and I am HUNGRY. I don't noti

crysharris wrote 10 months. Encouraged. Moving forward. 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I am encouraged and motivated right now. My weight loss progress is still slow but the scale moves. My clothes size continues to decrease. My energy level continues to increase.

Best of all,...

crysharris wrote NSV: No longer plus sized? 3 months, 1 week ago

Truthfully, I don't see it. But my pants size is officially no longer plus sized. I put on a snug sized 12. Tighter than I would wear slacks but I didn't have to suck in to zip em up.

10 months instead of 6 months but I still made it.

That is all.

crysharris wrote 2 month stall but moving again; Halfway to Goal 3 months, 2 weeks ago

It's been a ROUGH two months, family-wise, work-wise, and weight-wise. The scale has not been moving until just this week and I was seriously discouraged and worried that the process was going to "...

crysharris wrote 3 lbs in 2 months. :( 4 months ago

I'm in the doldrums right now. These last two months have been difficult, emotionally. I hit my lowest weight in 30+ years and promptly went up 7. Of course, it was all water, but it's been frustra...

Way to go.

crysharris wrote A bit discouraged + snacking thoughts 4 months, 4 weeks ago

Well, I only was below 200 for a few days. Then I shot up 7lbs in a week. Rationally, I know it is mostly water because there's no way to eat calories 3500 * 7 in such a short time. Still, it's sad...

I agree with Mary Gee. Stalls suck and feel discouraging. Trust the...

It's been a marathon and not a sprint, but I'm pleased that the scale number starts with a one and not a two for the first time in 35 years. Halfway to goal

Im pretty pleased with myself but less excited than I'd anticipated. Partially because my progress has been consistent enough that I knew it was coming and partially because I wanted to be here fas...

That's amazing. You look so proud of yourself in your photo.

I just got back from vacation and I feel good. I ate well away from my controlled environment, even out at restaurants. I was self conscious about eating around people that I hadn't seen in a year ...

I haven't blogged here in a long time. Life has been hectic and stressful and I've been spending a lot less time online. Also, my weight loss progress has been so painfully slow that I am rather de...

Thanks for commenting. I've been trying IF as well some days....

Things are going well. Weight loss is slow, and that's frustrating, but I feel good and I'm trusting the process.

I sent my mom my most recent before and after photo comparison. Her response was, "Great! This is really working for you! You're losing your boobs."
