Default Not bad for an old gal

Been a good week for this old gal. Three pounds in three days. I have been losing a pound a week for months but this week the whoosh fairy smiled on me. That makes 35 down and 45 to go. Definitely good motivator. Did a lovely three plus mile walk in ☀ Sunshine yesterday. Totally buoyed my mood. Knees paying today but it was worth it!

I love stories like this, as we all realize that it's not as simple as pressing the "easy" button, and it takes commitment, consistency, and patience. Glad you're enjoying the journey, gzgirl. Good job.

Thanks ROb, I have been doing this on and off for 18 years so I know the ups and downs. At one point I was out of the OBESE category and down 110 pounds then life took my by the neck and throttled me for a bit. Trying to find my way back and lose the regain. Biggest fear--- I have not had any major life catastrophies so far and that's what threw me last time so I live in fear of letting my guard down when times get tough, but I am aware of what can happen and hope that will make the difference.

Another month gone and with it another hard earned 5 pounds. Hit 40 down today. My next goal would normally be 50 down but I am only 13 pounds from Onederland and THAT will be a huge milestone for me. Gunning to hit it by second week of September.

Still walking my 10K daily, including 2-3 miles at mostly at a good 3.5 - 4 mph pace and lifting weights 5x a week. I am in a focused cruise mode. Keeping focused is the key.

Good week. Down to 206.2 today. I have been actively tracking my water to make sure I am getting 80 oz and have cut back on cheese a bit more. I also did a 36 hour fast this past week and that tends to jumpstart a whoosh. 3 pounds to go to 50 down and six and a half to open the door to Onederland. I am soooo excited about that! It is a HUGE milestone for me.

I think I may have jinxed myself by saying I haven't had a stall---scale has not budged for 2 weeks. I know I was due for this to happen at some point so I am trusting the process and waiting for the whoosh to come
