I read your list of goals and rewards - you might need to rearrange them, lol. As the weight goes so do the clothes.
You're doing great, just keep telling yourself one day at a time, one pound at a time. And try not to falter at the plateaus. I spent 2 weeks trying to get rid of 2 lbs but now the weight is on the move again.
I was just telling my DH last night that it took 23 years to gain (back) 62 lbs but I am losing it in 1 year! If you look at it that way you will realize how great you are doing!!
