WSR: Weight 298.8 - Weight Left To Lose 128.8

Height: 5'7"
Age: 40

Starting Weight: 370 lbs
Goal Weight: 170 lbs

Current Weight: 298.8 lbs
Pounds Lost: 71.2 lbs
Pounds Left To Lose: 128.8 lbs

Percent Of Weight Lost: 19.24%
Percent Of Way To Goal: 35.60%

Starting BMI: 57.9
Current BMI: 46.8
BMI Lost: 11.1

I started out the week at 301.8 pounds and achieved a loss of 3.0 pounds.

A 3 pound loss in the same week as my time of the month isn't too shabby. I'll take it.

I don't plan on making any adjustments this week. What I have been doing thus far seems to be working as I had hoped. I did lose a daily Weight Watchers point with my new weight range, but seeing as I rarely eat the entire set of points I don't really feel that loss at all.

After I lose another 3.8 pounds I will have exactly 125 pounds left to go. That is 5 25 pound units and that suits my left brain self very nicely. Prior to breaking the 300 pound barrier, that was my only goal - getting below 300. Now that I have met that goal, I am going to be thinking in terms of losing sets of 25 pounds. Breaking down the larger number into smaller units really helps keep me from feeling overwhelmed by the amount of weight I have to lose.

As PastaQueen said during her trip down the scale, onward and downward!

I found your blog through a link from Chubby Chick's blog.

You are doing AWESOME!!! I love stories like yours where you have accomplished so much and are achieving your goals.

I am working my ways towards losing 40 lbs. by Christmas through Chubby Chick's Christmas Challenge and so far I am doing well and half way I tell myself this is possible but reading success stories like yours makes it seem more real (if that makes sense).

Keep up the great work and you will be to goal before you know it!!

Thanks Michelle. I have lurked at your blog for few months now. I'm just now getting into commenting.

And reading others' stories does make it seem more possible to achieve my own goals. PastaQueen's story got me through many rough times when I thought I would NEVER do this thing.
