Weight: 222 – Pounds left to lose: 62

Boo-yah! Today I’ve reached new lows, which sounds like a bad thing, but actually isn’t. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and I can stop using that dreaded word ‘plateau.’ Once I lose another two pounds I’ll weigh less than 100 kg, so all you readers in metric countries can throw a little party for me. Another 20 pounds from now I’ll no longer be obese according to my BMI, just overweight. Another 23 pounds from now the first digit in my weight will be a 1 and I will probably faint from shock when I look down at the scale. I might need to start wearing a helmet when I weigh in for safety reasons. Lots of fun milestones to look forward to!

Brilliant! I’m so pleased for you. Fab news! It just goes to show that just gritting your teeth and socking it to the bloody p-word works.

You must feel amaaaaazing.

PS) love your site and musings on the dieting biatch.

Rock on!

I’m so happy for you!

I think losing weight after any plateau (or yikes! even gain) is one of the best diet – related feelings, ever.

So kudos to you my girl, and good luck with everything.
