Here we go again. So, I lost all sorts of weight between May 30th, 2012 and June 21st, 2013. More than 100 pounds. 304.9 to 185.0 to be exact.

Due to a few reasons, I did not transition to maintenance correctly or with support. Ultimately, I can only blame myself, but there were real external factors.

Here we go again. So, I lost all sorts of weight between May 30th, 2012 and June 21st, 2013. More than 100 pounds. 304.9 to 185.0 to be exact.

Due to a few reasons, I did not transition to maintenance correctly or with support. Ultimately, I can only blame myself, but there were real external factors.

Then my mom passed away on February 19th, 2014. Not only was she my mom, but she was almost everything to me......mom, best friend, roommate, recipient of my caregiving, biggest supporter of everything I ever did, and so on. It's taken me almost a year to regain enough strength to be able to really do this right this time.

So the next 8 months or so I will be losing 100 pounds, and then the real work begins....maintenance.

The program I've chosen this time is Medi-Weightloss. I began the program on 2/10/2015 at 282.0 pounds.

Let's do this!
