I had been losing weight at a rate of about 8-10 pounds a month since November. Then, finally, the two hundreds were looming near. I dropped down to a weight of 300.4 pounds 5 weeks ago, then the brakes were thrown on. I bounced up to between 303-304 and stayed there. Talk about FRUSTRATING!! Yesterday, I got on the scale and it said 300.4 again. Dare I hope? Yes. This morning, I weighed 299.4 pounds. This is still a lot, even on my Amazonion 5'11" frame, but I haven't been under 300 pounds in 8 years. Just another 100 to go!
