Default Finally hit the 50-pound mark :D

I'm down 50 pounds since Feb. 1. That's 17% of my starting weight gone and the first time I've seen 249 in at least four years. In 13 pounds I'll be halfway to goal. So far I have lost: the inability to cross my legs, three inches each from my waist and hips, a band size, a ring size and several chins.

That's really incredible! Way to go! I'm sure you will get to where you want to be. Just keep chronicling those milestones and the new things you can do now. At least for me anyway, those are things that keep me motivated and working.
