S/C/G: 372.9/352/162??

Height: 5'8.5"

Default Never felt so fantastic and so proud of myself

Am I unnaturally "high" on the success I've been having here? It is hard work. But for once, I can see that the hard work I am putting in is REALLY paying off.
On July 17th, I weighed 363 lbs. Today (just over 5 weeks later), I weigh 331.8

I have never been so proud of myself and felt so great about myself before! (even when I was much smaller before... because I didn't ever make a huge effort to take control of my body and health). *sigh*.

This really gives me the energy to keep going! Hopefully by the time I hit a plateau (and I know I probably will at some point) I will be clear headed and know that I can just wait it out (as I've already more than made up for a couple lost weeks). Woot.

Fantastic start! I'm so impressed! This is definitely a motivating place and I understand that euphoric "high". It's well earned, well deserved and provides that forward momentum to keep going.

You're right, you can handle a plateau. Just come back to this thread if one ever hits.

Thanks all

As to how I am doing it...
Lets see...
#1- Food-- I use fitday.com to track everything... I don't have an exact cut off or limit, but it does make me pay attention to what I eat.
#2- Water-- I used to drink soda, rarely water. Now I drink only water (i used the little flavored packets that have like 10 calories a packet)... I drink AT LEAST 100 oz. a day.
#3- Exercise-- Walking mostly. Some stretching. Started at under half a mile a day... Now I walk a mile most evenings.
#4-- protein. Yup.... I think that I am prone to not really caring whether I eat protein or not. But it definitely helps you feel full longer, gives you energy longer, and wards off cravings.
#5- journaling. For the first couple weeks, I basically pep talked myself up daily.
#6- support. Online and IRL friends.
