15 months ago today!!!

i can't believe how quickly the time has flown and how quickly the pounds have melted away ~ praise God! as of today i have lost 171 pounds! (7 pounds lost since last month) i absolutely cannot believe it. i have pretty much reached my goal ~ it was my desire to lose 175 pounds but i know that i have probably 5-10 pounds of excess skin that will only go away with plastic surgery ~ and at this point i don't see this happening because of the cost. i do not have any physical problems as a result of the excess skin, it would all be for cosmetic reasons.

i don't know that i will lose more weight because i don't want to look too gaunt and at this point i am pretty boney. and i feel very good about my appearance. i am so thrilled to know that i am at the weight i was when terry and i got married.

i don't have any plans at all to change my way of eating ~ this summer i have thoroughly enjoyed eating lots of berries. there is constantly a large bowl of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries with splenda on them in the refrigerator that we polish off almost every day! and i am eating more vegetables but still NO bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, sweets etc... unnecessary unhealthy carbs. don't need them - don't want them! those things pave the path back to obesity!
