Still eating mostly turkey and vegetables and herb tea for liquids .... But not so calorie restricted

The main thing is I feel healthy (after dropping 80 pounds) for the first time in years

I guess now I've gone from having a health motivation ... to having a pure vanity motivation ... to lose additional pounds. But at least I don't feel like I'm going to die if I don't lose more weight.

Blood sugar is normal, blood pressure is normal, cholesterol is normal ...
my doctor is calling me healthy
And in December said I'm no longer diabetic

So I'm in a pretty good place
You are so inspiring. I know that long term won't be 'easy' and it makes me a little nervous -- especially now as I'm getting antsy to move into a new Phase. Seeing that it can be done is so so helpful. Thanks for sharing
