Congratulations on your success so far. What is your fitness level? Part of a long term healthy life style is physical activity. Maybe you need a fitness goal like doing p90x or Couch to 5k to compliment your weight loss. You didn't state your height or what your ideal weight would be so I'm not sure what your long range weight goal is? Losing 35lbs in 8 weeks is over 4lbs a week. Rough calculations put you at about a 2000 calorie deficit per day. 1 to 2lbs per week is considered a healthy sustainable rate of loss. If your goal is to continue to lose weight you should aim for a calorie deficit of 500 to 1000 per day. You might also consider weight lifting or a body transformation. Check out Bodybuilding.com. They have a transformation of the week archive that I personally find inspirational. They also have a Fat to Fit thread in the forums with some great success stories. Welcome to Fitday!
