I know it's sunday, not friday, but I was wondering if I could join in this thread. I just joined on July 18, at 205, and today is July 22, and I'm 197. I don't know how it came off that fast, but I was able to wear a dress today that was just a little too snug before, which I thought was very cool, as the scale hasn't budged in about a year previous!
I think just being on this site daily is helping, even though I haven't quite got the jist of some things on it yet. I have been eating better and also getting "emotionally" fit as well. Thanks everyone for being so positive and supportive. We can do this!
By the way, I'm 5'4 and my goal weight is 150, since I have always weighed more than most women even when I'm thin (I couldn't get below 150 before and I was a size 4). 43 more pounds to go, and I'm confident they will come off by the time a year goes by!
