Believe

It's been a long time coming but I can now say I have lost 40 pounds. Plateau is over. It took 3 months to lose 1 pound but it's gone. My word for the year was Believe. I sometimes forget when the pounds drop so slowly. But here it is...


Christmas tree going up today. Baking Day on Saturday. Panic under control (beer helps!). Peace is settling in and I am 40 pounds lighter than this time next year. 

Onward to the next 10.

You skinny b*tch!!! Just kidding-- so happy for you and can't wait to be in your footsteps. Thanks for the encouragement... maybe I need a tweak of a fill???
I am still not feeling that lack of appetite I would look for to make this easier.
Ack.
But you are a light in the dark of a stupid plateau! Good work.

It's soooo great when we can finally plunge off the end of the plateau! It must have been the week for it as I too finally had some serious downward movement on the scales. Good on you! Keep up the great work!!
