Weight loss has slowed down considerably. I doubt I will have 7 - 8 pound losses in any given month anymore. Still not counting but trying to keep up with not eating too much processed food. Even if I eat vegan I still love chocolate and ice cream and all that as much as the next person. Thankfully my sweet tooth is much less prevalent than 2 years ago.

I'm at 182 now. I still feel like I'm 226. But sheesh, so close and I will finally be halfway into my goal. It took a long time but it's worth it.

My relationship with my husband is a lot better now than before I was treated, and I feel happier and more optimistic. I'm just tired of school. I love it but it is just such a drag at the same time. Maybe because I have nothing to look forward to there. I have no college friends. Frankly I have no close friends in West Virginia. Sorry but I just can't form a connection with them. It's crummy really. It makes me a bit sad that all I can think about is when I leave West Virginia. I miss my friends back home-- and above all I miss the feeling of feeling connecting and being one with the community that I live in. In West Virginia I kind of feel like an outsider, and technically I am. I just hope that as time goes on that I will have more time to devote to finding friends who share similar interests in this state, but it feels so unlikely.

I just hope it all works out for the best, but for now I'll just stay to myself.

    Slow progress is progress. Keep up the good work. Continue your habits as you have been and you will reach your goals. emoticon

As for your lonliness, is there a group you can join? A club on campus? A fitness group? A church group? Sometimes we are not open to the possibilities and we close ourselves off from opportunities that may present themselves. Hope you find some friends there! emoticon

    Making friends at school can be tough. It really depends on the school and the city you live in. The city I live in is the same way. Very hard to connect with people. I'm sorry you are having a hard time.

You are doing great with your weight loss. Keep it up. :)

    Aww I am sorry you didn't make any friends there. I felt like when I went away to college, I had a lot of issues makes friends as well. I finally made good connections when I was almost done and then I had to leave them. Sometimes it's all about where you hang out. I feel like at my health food job I have met some of the most amazing people because they are open minded and speak the truth, they are genuine. I hope you make some real friends soon! 2 lbs is great! Last time i was able to losing 8-10 lbs a month I was starving myself and working out way too hard. Your doing great! Maybe you should try concentrate on toning up. I felt like I looked a lot thinner when I started toning up with weight training.
