One year, 42 pounds gone

Is it August 1st already? It just hit me that I've been on this WL mission for exactly one year today! It honestly does not seem like that long.

Forty Two ugly pounds of fat are gone. When I started, I set a goal of losing 45 pounds. So, pretty close!

I feel lighter on my feet and better in clothes.

I look better in full length mirrors and in pictures (and reflections in store front or airport windows!)

I started getting fat 8 years ago, so I was basically fat for 7 years. It felt like an eternity. This past year on the WL journey has flown by. Time is gonna go by no matter what. I may as well spend time getting healthy and closer to my goals.

This is the longest I've ever kept a significant amount of weight off in over 8 years!!! And, it's all because of JUDD and you very wonderful JUDD BUDDS!!!!

That's very inspiring, YamYam!

And it's gone for good, of course. The confidence is another benefit!

Yay, you!

You've done a great job this year! Congratulations on good weight loss. I know it feels absolutely wonderful to have accomplished it, and encouraging to know that you have found a good way to eat to maintain your loss and to manage your weight overall forevermore, whether it's shedding a few more or doing the balancing act of maintenance.

I'm of the same attitude as you mentioned above.. If a person is going to be eating every day of the rest of their life anyway, why not do it in a manner that produces desired results rather than terrible and damaging results. So JUDDD it is!

Thanks you guys! I won't win a gold medal for "fastest weight loss" but I did not suffer. I actually am enjoying the journey and feel confident that I now have the tools to keep what is gone, GONE!

We are almost twins. My anniversary will be 9/15 and, at 41 pounds gone I match pretty closely. I am in total agreement in that I find the journey as valuable as the results! I have learned so much about how the human body in general, and my presumably human body in particular, works. I have learned so much about food and eating.
