Now I'm looking forward to saying "1/3" "1/2" 3/4 etc. <BR> I honestly didn't think I'd make it this far even- I have a tendency to give up and get discouraged easily. I think it's helping that I'm being public about this process and post on twitter when I go down another pound. I know there was a male blogger who actually posted his daily weight and while that's brave of him, that's something I never could. <BR> I'm guessing I'll sl... Wed, 3 Aug 2011 11:21:52 EST 1/5 of the way there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4291653 Today i finally hit -20 lbs. so excited! 1/5 of the goal!!!! Sat, 11 Jun 2011 10:35:35 EST back? maybe? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4282486 so after the plateau & the +3, i'm back at having lost 19. <BR> so pleased. Have to make sure to not give up. <BR> <BR> What's helping is i went through a bunch of old clothes and found a dress I bought 4-5 years ago. It's a size 18 which at the time was 2 sizes too small. Tried it on today and it FITS! I'm still a little lumpy underneath it, but holy moley was I excited to be able to zip that baby up!!! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/8/l386530342.jpg"> Tue, 7 Jun 2011 08:03:21 EST ugh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4279866 I plateaued for a bit. And then *gained* 3 lbs. <BR> And i've been good! seriously! So disappointed with myself, but now i'm heading back in the right direction, i think. <BR> I had wanted to lose 25 lbs before the end of june but I doubt that's happening. I keep hovering around the -18/-19 mark. <BR> so frustrating.

I suspect it was water retention, but man! What a downer! I think I may have powered through it, but I felt so upset! What are some of your tricks for not giving up on yourself? <BR>... Mon, 25 Apr 2011 13:53:05 EST First & TEN! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4154017 I've made the first milestone! (well, I consider it a milestone, I guess!) The first 10 pounds, GONE! hooray! so pleased with myself, although I know i have many many more to go. It feels good to say that. <BR> Sat, 9 Apr 2011 16:21:10 EST
