Hello everyone! I'm glad to see this thread. I have noticed through a lifestyle change class that being accountable not only to what you eat but also weighing in helps keep me on track. I'm happy to report that in one year I was able to pass my doctors 7% weight goal. My goal for my second year is to once again pass another 7% goal that I have set for myself. My current weigh in as of today at 11:15am is 294.2 My goal is to reach 285.4 Like many I seem to lose very slow. Half a pound per week. I think I'm seeing a plateau since I haven't seen 288 on the scale since my last doctors appointment three months ago. Then again through out this whole journey my scale has ranged from 2 to 5 pounds in weighing more then the office scales. I'll check back in with everyone next week. Glad to have so many people behind me.
