Latest weight loss news

It has been 21 weeks.  I am down to 280lbs and counting.  I have lost over 128lbs so far.  I recently got my 125lb pound ribbon which is my 5th 25lb ribbon in total so far.  I have 40lbs more to go to my goal which will include another 150lb ribbon and a final goal reaching ribbon.  Then it is on to maintenance and a life of keeping it off.

I can't tell you how different I feel.   It is almost like living in someone else's body.   None of my old clothes fit and each day I am discovering new things I can fit into.  I notice little things about myself now that I never noticed before.  I was sitting on the couch and looked down to see a "real" lap.  One that the cats can sleep on and a sloping L shape from my thighs to my chest that I hardly recognize.  Don't even get me started on my energy levels and my sleep and rest.   I feel I could take on any challenge that comes my way after this achievement.

The next 8 to 10 weeks are going to be the toughest as I start to loose my resolve for this fasting routine but I am determined to make my goal weight and even more determined to spend the rest of my life keeping it off.
