Thanks Riddy,Mrs Snark and Kelijpa
I'm getting there. It's hard to acknowledge that losing focus has meant a weight gain. I would NOT advocate a scale break, because thats what caused the regain for me. I got sloppy and thought I could allow foods to creep in that I knew would cause a gain. Having said that I totally understand the need o conquer the scale depression. When it goes down it's awesome, but the bouncing is awful I agree.
Down today another 1.8lbs. Think the travel and TOM weight is moving. Just leaves 13lbs til my interim weight.
When I hit goal last time I loved what I looked like, but many people said I was too thin. Thought this time I'd get half way and see how I feel. I lost the 145lbs 10 pounds at a time. The regain I'm taking at a pound a time
I'm going to get there, and so are you
