crysharris wrote A bit discouraged + snacking thoughts 1 day, 10 hours 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

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."

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.

I mean, I knew, theoretically, that they were under there since my arms and shoulders move. I've pressed down in that area before, beneath the flesh and fat, and felt something hard in that general...

I ain't even hungry but I've been snacking today. I can't toast nuts and keep them around the house anymore. The crunchy calls to me. I actually feel kind of yucky.

So, good news! I now weigh less than I did when I graduated from High School in 1989! Can you believe that? I barely can. I've been losing a steady 2lbs/week since my surgery on 11/20. Not as much as some fast losers, but it feels like nothing to sneez
