Getting Back Up
Don't feel bad, you're not alone! I'm in the same boat, I've been MIA for about 6 months and gained 25 lbs Sad It feels bad admitting "defeat" but we lost once and we have the ability to lose again. It's so important just being honest with yourself and getting back on that horse, bc many people never do and just keep gaining even more back. Stay strong!

What's You New Year's Resolution for 2011?
I'd like to reach my final goal weight of around 150 lbs, and maintain through the end of the year. I'd also like to keep up with my weight training to build more muscle mass/tone. And I'll take a page out of bella611's book and say learn to recognize my successes more! I feel like sometimes I don't reward myself for a job well done (it used to be with food- must find a new outlet! Like shopping, lol)

It is not a race...
Approximately 90lbs in 9 months. Doesn't feel that long at all, though! Guess time flies when you're having fun, right? Razz

the shape of weight loss
It seems to switch about every 5 lbs. For example, right now I'm losing from the bottom of my limbs before the top- so bonier wrists and ankles, but still a lot to lose on upper arms and thighs. And, embarrassingly enough, I don't lose weight symmetrically from side to side. As a woman, you can imagine how this could be awkward until both sides even out, haha!
