Default 14 Weeks & Going Strong!

Today was my 14th weigh in (not counting week 1 original weigh in before starting IP) and I'm down 2 more lbs, 54 total. I have never lost this much weight on any diet for any length of time. I still have a ways to go, but a little past mid-way, I'm in a reflective mood this morning and want to report a couple of things. Hoping all of you will do the same, mutual encouragement is soooooooooo helpful!

Started June 7th in a tight 22, today wearing a loose 16 (could be wearing a tight 14..might change into that in a minute!)
Shirts have gone from XXL in women's to XL in Misses (no more shopping in plus size stores and departments)
Cholesterol down from 262 to 185
Thyroid meds reduced to 137mcg to 125mcg
Started bike riding with my husband (haven't been able to do that in decades)
Bought 3 swimsuits for upcoming vacation (haven't owned one in decades)
I can cross my legs!!
I fit comfortably in a restaurant booth
I'm feeling better than I've felt in years and I'm learning to eat healthier and actually enjoying it.

The list goes on. I'm so grateful for IP, it is changing my life!

I hope everyone has an awesome day!

It's good that you're keeping track because it sure is motivating on "hard" days to see this IS making a difference. I'm right around your weight now and it is so FUN to have clothes fitting nicely. I've started same time as you and you're 20 pounds ahead of me so WELL DONE!

Congratulations! I really do love IP. I thought I would NEVER be able to lose weight, and I have tried! It makes me so happy to hear your NSV's...!!!
