FINALLY FINALLY - PLateau broken! Down 2.5 to 179 YEAH ME~ 86 POF (pounds of fat) GONE~

But I know I will struggle going up and down again until this stabilizes~

Been walking over 10K steps daily since 5 June - this too will pay off!

You WILL get there! My total goal is to get healthy - which I am working on - but these last 30 POF are going to be the most difficult - My DH reminded me that I started at 265 and now at 179 I have come a long way - I finally feel like I am getting slim -

Yes, how far you have come is AMAZING!! I get the same way. I lose sight of all the great I have accomplished, and focus on what I have failed to accomplish! It's awful!

So, congrats again! Your DH is so right!!!

Wow, just bought a new formal dress to wear on next cruise for formal night (long red halter neck) in size 14. It's a little tight but am going to loose more weight before cruise in November, so should look great.

CONGRATULATIONS to you - feels great doesn't it? I am taking another batch of PLUS size clothing to the Goodwill today! I am having a few favorites altered to fit as I only bought them last summer!

Keep up the great work!
