I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 149, one pound below my goal. It's taken a year and a half to get here, and I still feel that I could lose a little more. I think I'll just keep doing what I've been doing and let my body decide. I didn't think I would ever be able to get the weight off. When my health started to go I knew I didn't have a choice. I was overweight for 20+ years and until the last year and a half thought I would never get the excess weight off. I'm a calorie counter and I walk on the treadmill. I try to focus on vegetables, lean protein, some fruit and whole grains in limited amounts. I feel so much better with the weight off. I walk fast on the treadmill with it at 10.5 incline which has strengthened the muscles in my legs. It feels almost effortless to climb stairs now. I used to avoid them if at all possible because it hurt so much. It has been some work to get the weight off, but it is so worth it.
