Sitting in a class. M&Ms were provided by the instructor. No problem declining them when reading about your success!

Congratulations!!!

You did it all EXACTLY right! Great job. Be proud. I hear no smugness at all. You deserve to be proud and happy with what you've done.

Thanks folks, you are all very kind.

I can't emphasize enough the importance of patience to my process. (Yesterday I almost lost my temper here at someone with far, far less to lose than I have, complaining about only losing a pound a week. I restrained myself.)

Patience is what has allowed me to have a balanced life and eat healthy most of the time without having to give up occasional celebrations, indulgences, dirty martinis, and so on. I can include these things in my plan now and again because I know it's not the end of the world if I don't see a huge loss every single week. It's what allowed me to say "nah, not today - maybe next time" to most of those very tempting eating opportunities that we are all faced with all the time.

My way probably won't work for everyone but it's hard not to be evangelical about it when it has worked so well for me. I've done the flawless-execution, 100% focus, lose-10-pounds-a-month thing in the past, and I've always fallen off the wagon after 30 or 40 pounds of loss, and gained it all back with interest. This time, I didn't.
