Sw 332 Gw 325.4 Need to lose 6.6! Yikes! Lol I've crunched some numbers last night and realized I'm 3 pounds away from losing 40 pounds since mid June. I'm kind of proud of myself today. What makes me feel even better is that I'm not over the top crazy this time. I'm making the best choices I can and doing my best not to best myself up over the scales fluctuations I have a long way to go, but I know I can do it. I've done it before- its possible. Hopefully I will be mentally stable enough( haha) to keep it off this time! __________________

This is a tremendous loss in ten weeks; that's an average of four pounds a week or 1.2 % of your body weight. I have read that losses of 1 % body weight/week were realistic, so you are above that.

At the same time, you are not doing a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). I don't like those; they make me feel ill and weak.

If you do not give up, you will achieve your goal. Lastly, if you focus on making healthier choices instead of eating from a set menu (with very little calories), it will be more of a lifestyle change.
