With much trepidation I weighed in today since I have just returned from a cruise , a few days in New York and almost two weeks in Pa. in a stressful situation .Despite not eating the healthiest food I have maintained my weight loss and even dropped an additional pound.

Sorry to bump this thread, but I just had to make one more post to say that I have now been within range of the target I set for over a year

Thanks to all for the encouragement and support you've provided on this thread

That's wonderful!!! Glad you bumped the thread, it helps me to post here weekly, and I needed a reminder.

Can't believe it's been since August that I posted! I've been weighing every week though - have gone up to 127 after our Key West vacation, but back down to 125 this week. Just those 2# make me feel much better.



Highest was 139# (2007)

Considering everything you've been through I think you have done unbelievably well. Stress causes me to overeat.

Thanks! Me, too! I was really worried about putting lots of weight on...still watching it really closely and would love to drop back down to 123. I'm back to exercising, but not at an intense level yet. Baby steps...

You are both so inspirational, and SG, you are truly the Princess of Facing Down Challenges!

I'm 17.5 lbs. away from my (double-secret) goal as of this morning. Just a good-sized Thanksgiving turkey away!

Congrats. I am holding steady at my target as well. It has been more than six months now with no issues of hunger or desire to jump ship.
