So glad to see you back!! And even more so to see you have made progress!

It's funny because I see people on this site all the time that give themselves the goal of losing 100lbs in x amount of time. I think - sure, maybe they will do it, great! But I also think - just start, lose 25 lbs. Feel that for a while and see where you are. Then lose another 25lbs. By the time you get to 75, you already feel like a new person. You didn't do it in 6 months - neither did I. But we did it. And we feel better. Looking back in these old threads, it is a little time capsule and for me, reminds me that the time will pass anyway. I am SO GLAD that it has brought you to a healthier self. You'll finish it - I'm sure of it. Or maybe you'll get to 90 and maintain that. (I feel sometimes like the 100 mark is kind of arbitrary.) Regardless, you are already there! You've already changed your life and achieved so much. Celebrate you and what you've done - and then keep being healthy and see where that puts the scale.

HW: 225, lost 75lbs in 2011 LW: 150
Losing again starting from 205lbs - 7/31/2016

No words of widsom. After a lifetime of reflection and dieting, I still don't have this thing figured out. I have decided, though, that sugar is the devil and I'm cutting it out as much as I can.
