FINALLY!!! I've been WAITING for this!! I've NEVER made THIS MUCH progress THIS FAST!! -100 down since I've started Dr. Poon's Metabolic Diet. 11 months! One month to go to the year's up! I'm going to push to try to get as much out of it as possible! My top weight was 322 lbs. I'm now 216! STILL boggles my mind!! I have to keep repeating it to myself to get it to sink in! BUT, I'm not happy with where I am. I want SO MUCH MORE still! I don't want to be "morbidly obese" or even "obese" anymore!! I don't even want to be considered "overweight"! I am 5'5" so, 65" and just exploring to find the Body Mass Index today, I learned that to not be considered "overweight", I must be under 150 lbs. But I MAY try to go for the best number of my "desirable range" BMI and go for 23, which would put me at 138! OY!! So much work to do! IF I can keep losing at 2 lbs a week, to get to 150 it will take until late Dec, and to get to 138, it will take until mid Feb by my calculations! I have been fighting MY ENTIRE LIFE - since I became a teen - to try to lose. I have never been a thin adult. I have NO idea what that feels like & where I will be comfortable in my own skin. I'm learning!! NOTgiving in or giving up!!
