yes, i'm still 10lbs over, but a shade UNDER 10lbs over (i take my little joys where i can get them.) i've dipped tantalizingly under 170 several times in the last month even if i haven't managed to keep it and build on it.
but i don't feel like a fat girl any more. i look good. my clothes fit well. i'm getting into stuff i haven't worn in years (and should have got rid of years ago!)
i can't say that i leap eagerly into my daily workout and probably never will, but i feel so terrific afterwards and have grown to love and anticipate that feeling so much that i know it's going to be easier to keep it going through the sluggy months of late winter when i usually spread out like melted butter.
i have more energy and mental clarity than i have in so long.
i was so convinced that if i hit 50 and wasn't at my goal i was sunk. it's just not true.
sparkpeople has been a miracle for me.
