Was just wondering how long it took (roughly) to go from 120 to 110? I just reached 120 today and would like to see how long it took others to do it

It takes me five months to lose ten pounds, because I lose two pounds a month.

That's reeeeally slow, for sure, but the flip side is that it's extremely consistent. I haven't technically gained any weight - except for temporary holiday weight, which included a January birthday and was gone by this week - since February of 2014.

I was 132 on 2/22/14, and my last official weigh-in on Friday was 111.8.

Massive congratulations on getting to 120 - that's a major accomplishment!

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, after failing, year after year, at SO many diets, it makes me feel amazingly wonderful to lose week after week. It's a freakout! There was a lot of trial and error, and I'm still seeing what works, by referring to the scale almost every day. But I got tired of gaining it back all the time, and went with the scientific method!

I agree that it is different for all, since our bodies have their own shapes and ways of operating. That's part of that method - figuring out what works for you, personally, with your own likes, dislikes, and strengths.

Yes.....it took me a long time to figure out I, personally, had to weigh in every day to hold myself accountable

Like I said, I knew that years back----and I was able to stay thin and maintain that way. But as the years passed, I slipped away from that and tried to kid myself into believing that I could lose without weighing. Massive fail for me.

I admire people that do not need the scale and still lose and get to their goal!

I am just excited to be able to wear my clothes again. I am not really there yet---some fit OK, but the cool ones are not even close. Plus, I am really excited to wear all of my shorts and tank tops this summer. I actually have something to really look forward to!

I know that all of us here have come to the conclusion that we feel so much better physically and mentally when we are slim. It actually makes the world look brighter.

It's cold here, so I have been wearing tons of layers to stay warm---but I am longing for the day when the weather warms up and I can shed all of these layers, literally and figuratively, and step out into the sunshine with my new body!
