Moving on Down!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

It was a thrill to see a "5" as the middle number on the scales today! Just 3.5 pounds to go to goal weight, but I know it may take 3 or more weeks to get there: the weight comes off much more slowly at this point. However, wearing a size six (six!!: vanity six, but still a six!!) skirt yesterday was also very encouraging -- and it wasn't tight, wasn't uncomfortable. So the inches are coooperating too. It may be that when I get to goal weight I decide that it wouldn't hurt to peel back a few more: lean body mass is best to discourage recurrence.

Treatment schedule continues -- I've now completed 4 out of 16 -- and although a bit fatigued, so far nothing that can't be handled.

All in all: feeling good and enjoying the great people I've met through SparkPeople. Thanks, all.

You rock my friend! emoticon
