Aaaannnndddd… there goes 40 pounds!

41.6 pounds down!

41.6 pounds down!

The last several weeks have a been a struggle.  After Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and Father’s Day within about a month’s time, it was tough staying on track.  But the last week or so, I’ve been on track and feeling good.  However, my weight has been pretty much stagnant.

Until the last two days.  This morning, I weighed in at 218.4 pounds.  That ‘s more than two pounds down from a couple weeks ago, and 41.6 pounds total!  I’m more than halfway to my goal weight of 180!

My last time on this weight-loss journey, this is when things started to get difficult.  I finally peaked at a loss of 52 pounds, but things had been difficult – physically and psychologically – for a while before that.  I don’t expect the rest of this journey to be easy.  I know it won’t be.  But I honestly believer that if I can stay on track – continue to lose weight at my current rate – in a couple more weeks I’ll be over the hump and well equipped to lose the rest of this weight.

Now is when I need your encouragement and prayers.  Thank you readers!

35 Pounds Down

Down 35 pounds!

Down 35 pounds!

I’ve had a little struggle with food over the last month. Mother’s Day and Memorial Day provide opportunities to eat – and I took a couple others as well.  While I didn’t backtrack, I definitely stagnated for a couple weeks.

But today, I’m down 35 pounds to 224.6! Getting back on track and still going strong.
