  • Quote: This month will make 5 months that I have been on IP. From October thru the end of December, I was unstoppable. And you would think the holidays would be my greatest challenge... I mean, it was but I didn't allow myself to cheat. However, after the New Year, most of my old habits started to kick in. I still didn't "cheat cheat", but I was unable to keep the weight off. I didn't gain significantly, but it was like a rollercoaster ride. Some weeks were down, then I went back up, and it kept going like that for about 2 months. I never though I'd break free...

    Until this morning. I changed my WI day because Saturday nights are challenging for me because of my work schedule, so now I weigh myself on Monday. However, yesterday I decided to weigh anyway, just for haha's. I changed what I had during the week, and was ready for that scale... but still had that voice of doubt in the back of my head. I ignored it and stepped on. Down 4.5! I screamed! That meant I only had 1 pound to go before I got under 200. Well, I got on it again this morning, and this is what it read...

    Congratulations! Your perseverance has paid off!
