Default I've Lost 50 Pounds!

I'm too sick (still!) to feel as good at this as I thought I would, but I still wanted to report that I've finally reached the 50-pound loss mark! I know many people on here have lost much more, but this is a *big* milestone for me.

In some ways, I already feel like a different person. My energy level (sickness nonwithstanding) is so high, when I used to get winded walking from one end of the mall to the other. I actually like exercise and get antsy when I miss it. I no longer find it impossible to choose a healthy dinner, eat half of what's on my plate, and not feel deprived. And yes -- I have so much more confidence now!

I just want to thank everyone on here. Your words motivate and touch me far more than you could know. This forum is truly a godsend.

Next goals - Winter Solstice Challenge then ONEDERLAND!!!! Nothing's gonna stop me now.

WOOOO HOOOOO 50lbs THAT IS AWSOME!

That is always a great one to reach. 50 seems like so much more than 49.

That is so great!!! What an accomplishment. I agree that 50 pounds is a big deal. Just think where you'd be at if you still had those 50 pounds on you. Go to the feed store (or wal-mart) and grab up one of those 50 pound bags and carry it around for about 5 minutes. That's always a good dose of reality to remind you that you have come a LLLLLOOONNNGGG way.

I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Sandi -- I don't have a new full-body pic, but I'm hoping to have hubby take some this weekend. I think you can tell the MOST in my face, but judging from the reactions I got over Thanksgiving, you can probably tell all over .

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words. I'm really so excited, even though I have lots left to go!

Jennifer, I'm so proud of you, I can hardly stand it!! You are doing SOOOOOOOOOOO beautifully, and you have earned my undying respect, my friend. You dropped each one of those fifty freaking pounds from **** through sweat, discipline, and consistency. You've won this success through focus and motivation, and no small faith in yourself.

You're strong, you're brave, and you're resilient.

And you're one **** of a nice woman, Jennifer. I'm sincerely ecstatic for you. Yay!!!

Stop stop stop! I'm blushing!!!!

Kathy, I don't have time right now, but I will try to write a little something up later about what I'm doing. I will say this: it ain't rocket science (which begs the question -- why didn't I do it before???) I've tried to keep it fairly simple & use my own little made-up "plan."

More later!
