So today, I reached my halfway point. Feels pretty amazing. 36.2lbs gone. That's more than three bags of potatoes off my back and knees.

I'm overwhelmed a bit though. I don't know what it feels like to have a healthy, fit body and it seems like that's what I'm going to get. It's wonderful and scary. I haven't weighed this since I was like 15/16. It's like being a fish out of water and I still have almost 40lbs to go..

I guess I should mention, all I'm doing is following Canada's food guide, with SLIGHTLY smaller carb servings in the evenings (1/4 cup dry rice instead of 1/3 or 1/2) and I began working out approximately 2 weeks ago. I'm hoping the working out will help continue to lower my bloodpressure and other medical issues as well as prevent the dreaded saggy skin. My dietitian says I'm not losing it too fast, so it won't come piling back on spontaneously either..Kind of like pulling off a really big warm, (albeit tattered, bulky and tired looking) blanket. Not sure I'm ready for that kind of exposure.

Anyways, I'll try and post again soon. Thanks for being an outlet!

Great job Smile

Does anybody really think that they didn't get what they had because they didn't have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment?

Congratulations. It's great when you manage to drop so much weight or enough weight where you really notice the difference. You are giving yourself the best gift ever - a healthy body.

Keep it up!


A year from now you will look back and wish you had started today.
