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

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? 1 month, 3 weeks 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.

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. :( 2 months, 2 weeks 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 3 months, 1 week 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...

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

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...

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."

I've been snacking all day. At least it feels that way. Not even really hungry, just peckish and unsatisfied with my meals. It's frustrating and stressful because I'm calorie and macronutrient obsessed. I know it doesn't matter, ultimately, so long as

I can see my collar bones. This may be the first time I've ever seen them rather than pressing down and feeling through flesh and fat. I was surprisingly fascinated and moved by this small but meaningful victory.
