WooHoo! Congrats! 3 pounds is wonderful. I know it came through lots of hard work, keep it up, I know you will see that 199 before you know it.
I told myself the other day that I am not going to focus on where I want to be, but what I have accomplished, even if that accomplishment is only a couple ozs...or staying at the same weight and not gaining. I have trouble with patients when it comes to weight loss. I am trying very hard to adjust my thoughts. Weight loss is tough, very tough and will take a long time to reach goal. The good thing is all of us are getting healthier and healthier with each pound (or oz) lost.
Again, keep up the great work!
