10% is gone
I can't quite believe it, but 10% is really gone. I've been bouncing up and down in the same 10 pound area for years now and had convinced myself that I couldn't get below 150. But after going through TOM, the scale (and my belt) really seems to be showing I've actually dropped 16 lbs.
I think I've found something I can really live with--basically just eating whole foods (yeah, it does take tons of planning), eating less (than a typical construction worker), and moving my butt--because I'm feeling very energetic and don't feel ravenously hungry.
The only person who has noticed any change is my younger daughter, who said "Your sides don't seem so big," but I am excited and just had to share!
