My son is now 12 year old. Six months ago, I made a plan to get back down to 254, which was the weight I was at when I had my son. I am 14 pounds away from that goal right now, but I have lost one whole pant size and could SQUEEZE (muffin top) my way into a size 22. I prefer to be comfortable though. It is amazing... this is the second time I have tried to lose weight. Last time I tried to lose weight, I kept 13 pounds off (over 8 years). This time, I hope to stay under 270 and keep going.
The next several months are going to be stressful. We will be trying to sell our house and will be moving. I hope that I can remember food is nutrition, not comfort or anxiety medication. I would love to get to the point in my life again when I am not considered morbidly obese.
For me, the biggest results seem to better facial structure, less thighs and hips and a little smaller in my stomach area.
Thanks to those of you who give me encouraging words!
