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.
