I finally reached a healthy BMI. My original goal was to lose 60 lbs and I achieved that at the same time. I never thought I could do this because I have lost and gained over and over again. I changed my original goal and want to lose another 14... Read more

Lost a pound this week. Since I decided to maintain, the weight keeps coming off. I think relaxing about the whole thing has helped. When I gave myself permission to have more or to have more of a calorie range, I don't really use it. I tend to... Read more

I lost .5 lb this week. I'm trying to maintain now, so the little loss was a neat bonus this week. Was going to measure and track really carefully on Thanksgiving but decided just to wing it and hope for the best. That was only one day and had o... Read more

Today's weigh-in; lost another pound. That brings the total now to 50 lbs. I've been on this program now for little over 8 months. This has so totally changed my life for the better. I wish I could bottle this feeling and sell it. That would t... Read more

Ran in the park this morning 3 miles with DH. He does his thing and I tag along way behind him, but this morning he was not able to pass me . That was a first. It was still dark and not a soul around. It was so peaceful. Running has such a calm... Read more

I lost 1 lb this week. It's slowly adding up. Had a really successful shopping experience. I was looking for a pair of new jeans, because all my stuff is all baggy and sad looking. I was able to fit really comfortably into 12's and even a few si... Read more
