It is an emotional rollercoaster. We all want the weight to fall off quickly but the reality is...it isn't going to happen. I've been doing pretty good, losing slowly but not depriving myself either, however I failed the past few days. I was so pleased to finally get my 10LB star and then blew it...indulged in way too much chinese food. I've gone up 4 lbs on the scale, although I'm sure most of it is water retention. Now I have to try and get back on track!!!! I so understand your journey and I keep looking to you as my inspiration....I will do it, just not as quick as I wanted.
Keep up the great work, you look FABULOUS!!!!!!

I hate #2 and have a hard time accepting the fact that I won't lose every week. I have been on such a long plateau, it stinks! I'm obsessed with averaging my weight loss per week, and that number keeps going down because I'm stuck. I need to figure out a way not to care what the average per week is. I guess I'm obsessed with excel spreadsheets. It's how I got out of debt. Too bad my body doesn't understand basic math where 1+1=2.

YES!!!! Exactly! I had so many moments like this back when I lost my 55 pounds. And this part: "Yay, here's an opportunity to spread my diet message like Jesus is coming back in 10 minutes and I have to save this woman!" HAHAHAHAHA!! YES!!

And when you get the part where you say, basically, "diet and exercise" and their eyes glaze over...

It really is sad to see that people have given up and then I think that there were probably people who thought that *I* had given up and no amount of preaching would have made a difference.

We have to be ready to do it. And so do they. And sometimes when the student is ready, the teacher that appears will be us...and sometimes it won't.

Do not despair dear Charlie...you are a bight shining light!

Wait, what if I WATCH Biggest Loser for 8 hours a day? Will that work? Maybe my body will sympathetically lose? Yes? Hmm?

Oh man do I want one of those pasta breadbowls... lol jk! But not really, never had one, but they look so good.

ANYWAYS! I like this post, so true, so true! There really is only one way to lose weight, right? It sucks and isnt fun, but its worth it.

Sometimes when you have so much to lose, it feels like such a huge, daunting goal. I also had 100 lbs to lose, I've lost 50 so far. Halfway there!

I've tried so many times to diet and I only recently came to the conclusion that I just don't want it bad enough yet. I'm sure my time will come. For right now, I'm just cutting carbs to support dad while he deals with type 2 diabetes.

I'd kill someone for a Crunch bar right about now...

75!!! You hit 75!!! Congratulations, my friend. You are a true and AWESOME inspiration. (Even when I don't comment often as I should!)

By the way, we bought a treadmill today. As in, a machine to run on. Can you believe that???
