Weight Loss update

I'm working on week 12 of my 28 week program.    I have lost 78lbs so far.   Which seems like a LOT but if you need to loose 170lbs it isn't even half way.  But I'm already feeling the difference.   The fasting with 5 shakes a day is getting easier and easier to do.   I am enjoying the new found energy and restful nights.  My overall well being is much happier than it has been in many years.   I don't know why it takes something drastic like this to make me realize what I have been missing.    I'm really looking forward to the final results. My goal is to continue to fast until I am at 240lbs or under 22% body fat.   I'd like to continue to work on weight loss once I start eating again and try to get to 230lbs or maybe a bit less by just watching my diet and continue with my daily walks.

My other big goal is to keep the weight off.  This is actually the hardest part and the part I am most nervous about.  I don't want to slip back into old eating habits and truly want to change my lifestyle and live the next decade a healtheir person.   One of the benefits of being average weight is being able to pay for normal health insurance and life insurance without being denied or turned down.  The next 10 years are going to be interesting.
