I am pleased with losing my 11 pounds since January 27th. The last time I tried WW, I was losing ¼ pound a week...didn't take me long to give up. Since my focus is now on health, not appearance, my committment is much stronger. I am learning so much about nutrition here and plan on establishing a life long healthy eating plan.
We are in the same situation so much to loose. Like you 1lb a week is still 52lb a year and although a long hard slog in 2 years it will be gone. Loosing slower means less risk of flabby skin also, so I have read.
A long way to go but keep plodding along, day by day.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
