Default On target ... softly, softly!

2lbs down this week, which pleases me because I am happy with just one a week.

So this brings me to 229.80 lbs, and thus a loss of 7lbs since I started this effort.

It is so tempting to up the anti and go for the bigger loss but I am not going to do that. I need to lose this weight with the lifestyle change, that means softly, softly because everything I am doing now is about keeping it off in the end.

At this rate I will reach my goal weight in a couple of years and that is daunting but if it means I maintain the lifestyle and loss ... fine. It took me a few years to put on this poundage, I can afford to take time to lose it.

I have a cold, nasty but I am determined not to lose momentum so dancemat and treadmill here I come

Well done. If you google what a pound of fat looks like it is actually a significant chunk of us!! It's a great achievement to lose two in a week - you have a brilliant attitude.

I've been at this for two years now, and I'm so happy I started two years ago! It's worth the wait and gets better all the time.

Yes, and one of the things I've been thinking about is that it might take me a while to get to goal weight, goal weight doesn't magically make me fit and attractive- that's a gradual thing that's happening all the time. Looking at your goal, I'm sure people will be marveling at how trim you are LONG before the 140 mark!

Ah, an easy visual on 1 pound of fat is 4 sticks of butter!! That is always what comes to my mind.
