I think 3/4 lb. a week is great! It doesn't sound like much when you say "3/4 lb. per week," but what about "39 lbs. in a year"? That 39 lbs. sounds FANTASTIC to me!

Losing slow is a whole new mentality, but a very forgiving one. Don't worry, any forward progress is good progress :o)

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

Welcome to the team.

I like the snail analogy. Yep. Snails have no reverse in their transmissions!

Snails pace is good. You're going in the right direction. In my garden l've never seen a snail going backwards - they are always moving forward.

GIVE YOURSELF THE CHANCE YOU DESERVE.

I am losing 3/4 a pound a week when I average it all out. I am slowly accepting that this is just the way my body wants to do it.

One significant benefit of doing it the slow way is that I am more in tune with my body. I am learning how to fuel it with healthy foods. YEAH FOR SLOW!!!!
