Week 33


Weight: 266.0 

Weight loss in one week: 3.0
Total weight lost: 102.4
Average weekly weight loss: 3.10

Weight left to lose: 26.0
Weeks left at average loss: 8.39
Estimated total weeks: 41.39 (about 9.55 months)

So, another week of a good loss--3 pounds.  That's not quite my average, but it's 3 pounds or more, which is not bad.  I now have 26 pounds left to lose, so that still hase me hitting my goal at around mid January. That's okay.  Just okay.

Gotcha!  This is really exciting.  I'm past that 100 pounds lost mark.  I can't believe it!  I really am so happy and surprised and humbled and blessed.  Wow.  Really, all I can say is that if I can do it, any obese person could do it.  It really is simple--but really isn't easy!  But it's so important to keep on track and be patient (two things that are really difficult for me).  Oh, and yeah, it really is essential to have the support of so many great people (both in "real" life and online--for me at least).

Simple not easy. Truer words have not been written...at least not in blogger world.

Congratulations on hitting the 100 pound mark. I remember when I got there and I was so thrilled. I will be there again!

You are doing such a great job Beej!

Yes, we have prune yogurt and it is delicious. I have it with pumpkin flax granola and nuts as you could see from my picture.

Poutine is from the devil, well it is actually from Quebec. It is french fries with cheese curds and hot gravy. Never try it! I beg you.
