Down 2.2 lbs. this week - making it 30 lbs all together! This has taken months, needless to say, but it is progress and I am not complaining!

Congrats THEATRE1SM!!! I can totally relate as I've had similar experiences in my journey.

Over the past two months, I've been eating for crap. Now, I'm cutting out the sugar that I'd let creep in, and getting in a few two mile walks during the week. Not doing too great on strength training, but cardio is better. I've weighed 248 for the past 2 months. The great news, is while I've lost exactly 20 pounds in the past 8 months, I've also lost 9", 3.5 off of my thighs, 4 off my waist 2.5 off my hips and 1 off my arms!

Had to share with people who would understand - last weigh in was Sept 13 at 293. Since then have tried to do what I can but haven't been great at sticking to nutrition and exercise. Weighed in this morning 291!! I thought for sure I'd gained, instead I lost 2 pounds!!

On the first of September I weighed down at 168 lbs. Then my mental illness struck again with a bad depression. Today I weigh 179 lbs. Eleven pounds up, but I do feel like my new medications are fighting the depressive mood. When that is in control, I'll be ready to be back on track. At least I'm replying to a message post today. That is progress! Thanks for being out there folks.

I am 132 again!! I've been the same weight for three weeks after losing three pounds. I'm OK with that, though, since I had a Halloween candy mini-binge, followed by a bigger candy binge, this week. All that candy is now safely en route to Afghanistan....
