I am so excited finally I have gone below the 200 mark!! I am 199 LBS this morning and I can tell I have some extra water weight on me so I am probably even less than that. It has been about 10 years since I have been below 200 or even 210. I have now lost 36 pounds since September 2011. 6 months it has taken me. I have truly learned better eating habits. so the longer it takes to come off the better.

That's awesome!! Yay for you! Very Happy And you're right, it'll come off eventually. You're eating better now, and changed your eating habits. Doesn't matter how long it takes. All of those days are gonna go by anyway, might as well be losing as they do Smile Continued success to you!
