I just wanted to post and say that I'm trying again!!
I updated my weight tracker at 286.6/286.6/150. So, I have about 136 pounds (gee, another person!) to unload.
I've picked up, yet another book to read to get the ole' mindset. It's a fantastic book with a great deal of scientific/medical research behind it and I'm familiar with the author and have many other books he has published.
But, the pain, the mounting medical conditions, the lack of decent sleep and the overall "enough is enough" attitude, I'm here to say.......
BRING IT ON
Wish me luck.
Being determined is the decision todo whatever you need to do in order to have what you say you want to have!
My mini goal is to take off 50 lbs. by August
For every 10 lbs.
Congratulations on a life changing decision. You can do it. I too had an entire person to lose, (and an obese person at that) and the road can seem VERY long, but it CAN be done, and I'm sending success vibes your way.
I wish you the very very best of luck AND perseverance AND sticktuitiveness AND willpower. Because luck? Has nothin to do with it. You CAN do this!!!!
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008

Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
