Down another 3.8 pounds this week! Much more than I expected because I faltered a few times. My total to date is 31.2 pounds. I got some "new" clothes last weekend, which always feels awesome. And the fact that I paid very little for them is even better. A generous friend was sending a bunch of clothes to consignment and let me have first pick. Some items I bought at YARD SALE prices were high-end and still had tags on them!
I'm feeling pretty good. Turning over in bed (I have back pain when I'm lying down) is so much easier/less painful. My light-headedness has subsided, though still not completely gone. (Just when I get up from sitting on the floor, etc.). I have the energy I need. Emotionally I'm still a mess....this is a roller coaster ride. Learning new ways to handle stress and frustration rather than eating is a skill I'm VERY slow to develop. I sometimes justify "cheats", and then feel the guilt later. Temptation when I'm around food is still pretty bad (some days better than others). I have been told of a lot of ways to fight the temptation, but I don't always remember to do them (STOP/CHALLENGE/CHOOSE is what TSFL folks tell me. I remember a friend telling my child once "Stop/Breathe/Think).
My next milestone will be the 60 day/two month mark. I'll do measurements then (May 20 or May 22).
