Ok so I calculated the time it will take me to get to 150 pounds losing 2 pounds a week.. EARLY JUNE!!! I can be 10 pounds from my goal weight in 6 months. That's so amazing!! That right there my friends is inspiration for me to try hard. (My husband's birthday is early june :) )

That's awesome, Christine! I am shooting for July 1st to reach my goal.

(I think I can, I think I can...lol)

You should change the "A little too much to love"... cuz 165 isnt too much. :) you're doing awesome!! How does it feel when you look back on losing 73 pounds?!

I absolutely do not want to rain on your parade, but try to keep in mind that the closer you get to your goal, the more difficult it is to lose weight. I don't think I've ever met someone who could consistently lose 2 pounds a week all the way to goal. You'll absolutey be in a much better place in 6 months, but if you're not AT goal, don't get discouraged! :^:

You make an excellent point, Jilly, and thanks. I know that if I don't make it to goal by the date I've set I'll be disappointed, but I also know that I'll be WAYYYY too close to give up. :D

Christine, thank you for the compliment. I think I just might change that title; what a boost that would be!

I am suppose to be reaching my goal in mid March. I am giving myself 2 week of lag time in case I hit plateau. But I am already planning to hit the mall when it gets warm!
