It's taken me 7 months
and I've lost a total of 25 pounds. I am pretty happy right now! And I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we seem to have found something that WORKS! That's always been the sticking point -- I'll go through a lot, if I can see some results! You see, 17 of those 25 pounds have come off in the last 10 weeks of that 7 month time frame. 10 weeks ago, we started working on an item for our 101 Challenges in 1001 Days list, wherein we ate only food we made from scratch for 2 weeks. The weight started coming off dramatically. Mind you, I was eating the same number of calories as before ... and working out the same amount (sometimes even a little less!), but the weight came off. I'm pretty damned geeked right now, because we've found a way to have about 18 meals a week that are from scratch and 3 that are not & the weight is still coming off. Just gotta keep on keeping on. In another .7 pounds, I'll be at the goal weight I set back in 2002 & couldn't achieve in time for my 2003 wedding, so that's not far off ... and it's pretty damned exciting.
