I reached my first goal this past weekend. I had planned to be down to 200 lbs by our beach vacation on the 4-6th of May. Well I made it to 210 and went on vacation anyway. I reached 200 on the 28th of May. A little late but I did reach it!!!!!!!!:carrot:

My next goal is 175 lbs not sure I am going to put a date on it but I might just for accountability sake. ;) as long as I get smaller than 175 by my daughter's wedding in January is the main thing!

All in all I have lost 62 lbs since Christmas 06!!! I went from a size 24 to now a size 16. I hope to be a 12-14 when I finally reach my target goal of 175.(or smaller.....who knows where I will stop!!!) Doctor says according to BMI I need to be down to at least 165....but she said I have accomplished so much in such a short time that she would be thrilled at 175. I said ME TOO!!!!!!!! :D

There are so many fantastic success stories on here that I am just amazed!!!! GOOD JOB EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!:carrot:

Congratulations on an awesome accomplishment, Jarjonja!
Your experience is truly inspirational.

I have often heard that a routine bedtime and not eating after 8 pm may be highly beneficial in weight loss and overall wellbeing. Your post confirms this for me.

You've provided a new (for me) tool in calculating portion control: stop at 1200 calories. I can do that. Your plan doesn't even sound like a "diet," but rather a healthy lifestyle - with benefits! :carrot:

Would you give an idea of a sample day's menu? The breakfast you describe I can easily handle:) It's the "lighter" lunch and dinner that I need some direction.

Thanks for sharing your story and offering genuine motivation,
