Doing it, Doing it and doing it well

Finally on track! I'm not trying to give myself too much credit tho.... don't want to mess up a good thing. I certainly like this momentum I am building. Last week I lost 7.4 pounds. That's the best I've done in a long time and I can't tell you how much I needed that!!!!

    7.4 is too much.

    Trust me here, this can't be a race.

    I went back to see your specifics....maybe it isn't at your weight, and I hope you aren't taking this the wrong way. When I was at my heaviest, I lost a good amount in a short period of time.

    Just understand that 7 lbs a week isn't sustainable, not healthy after a point.

    I think a lot of us were always a bit on the plump side, but not near where we are or were. It took years to put on enough weight to finally say enough is enough. That's why I say we can't expect to drop weight we gained over 20 years in 1-2 years and hope to keep it off.

    I started this journey at about 285 lbs. I now weigh 194-197 depending on how the scale wants to treat me that morning, so say 195-196. I have pics to see. I have held that for 1.5 years, so I have a good grasp on what I need to do to maintain.....but I want to lose another 10-15 lbs, and am having a hard time. I need some help.
