Default i will never shop plus size again!

i have lost 54.5 pounds to be very exact. i am now a size 12. i am wearing a medium/large in shirts. if i try something on, it fits. i'm wearing cuter clothing. i'm finding things in my size.

i think i've crossed back over that invisible weight line for my height and body type. i've got my mojo back. it was probably always there, but hiding under all the fat. i feel weightless. i'm never out of breath. i no longer feel hopeless.

i met someone i really like and we have been dating for a few months.

i survived thanksgiving. i stayed on plan and lost four more pounds.

woot! at this time last year, i thought i would never be thin again and i have proved myself wrong. i only have 25.5 pounds to go until my goal.

Excellent! Keep up the good work and remember, maintenance is for the long haul (whatever you do, don't stop the LC WOE and go back to the Standard American Diet SAD)--That was the mistake I'd made years ago and it's haunted me ever since.

this is my second trip on the low carb journey, so maintenance is very much on my mind this time around. i didn't do as much research the first time. i thought i could just go back to eating the way i used to, but oh no. i won't let that happen again.

thanks everyone!
