Hi Michele! Slow is best, as you already know! It didn't take me 6 months to gain all this weight and it won't take 6 months to get it off! Same goes for all of us. You are on the right team and I am glad to see you here.

There is no doubt that you will succeed. emoticon emoticon

Michele! It's great seeing you on the Slowest Loser team. It's been a long time since we were both on the Slow Cooker team. I've got you beat though. I'm down 11 pounds to your 60!

Welcome!

Welcome, Michele. Slow is the best way and I'm happy to hear you are on the right track. Congratulations on coming so far. I've lost 13 lbs in the last 6 months. I've noticed that although it's slow to leave, it's also slow to come back even after a 2 day binge. Before, I could gain a pound just by thinking about ice cream.

Hello. My name is Michele, I'm 22 years old and from Ontario, Canada. I am definitely a slow loser. In 2 and a half years I have went from 340 lbs to 280 (60 lbs). This to me has been a great journey. If it wasn't for losing so slowly I would have never learn lifelong lessons and my weight loss would not be permanent. I still have another 120 lbs to reach my goal weight (160 lbs) and at my current rate it will take me 4 years. 4 years well spent learning more, becoming even more confident and loving myself even more! Much better than 4 years gaining!

My name is Michele and I am PROUD to be a slow loser!!!
