    I completely understand the idea of something clicking! For years I didn't take care of myself but one day I decided that I was done being lazy and I've been working hard since June! Stay positive and motivation will come! Excited to see what will come next for you!

    How do you decide to stop being lazy? I myself am really lazy right now and it is hard to stop. It is ruining my weight loss journey. It is hard to even think about not being lazy. Let me know why and what made you deside to stop being lazy.

    Keep it up! "Only 22 days" not only, that's fantastic. Celebrate your accomplishments, don't downsize them. I do the same thing.... mistakes in a lighted trophy case, accomplishments thrown in some moldy box in the basement. Reverse that. Celebrate yourself!

    It's so nice to hear that you are feeling so good and enjoying your newfound mobility! :)

    I think there was some discussion last month about how you likely had shed a lot of water weight, and how with the lymphedema, you may experience a lot of water weight fluctuation. The water weight is probably just leveling out and it is masking the fat loss, but that definitely doesn't mean the fat loss has stopped! I bet the numbers will be great next month ;)

    I'm so glad to see you kept your positive attitude after weigh in.. that's the hardest time especially if you don't see what you wanted.
    I could almost feel the skip in your step as you described getting in the car and the drive there.
    Go you, I'm cheering you on. 🎉

    The stupid scale can be a real b*tch sometimes! It's great to see how your attitude has changed, and yes, you're so right about it being more important how you feel vs. what the numbers say. Keep at it, and the scale will follow the way you feel eventually!

    Good for you! Keep on truckin'. You'll get there. Could be you ate something salty--there are lots of reasons the scale doesn't move sometimes. Also you lost a lot for your 1st weigh-in. Get out and walk, enjoy the world and never give up. Routing for you.

    Good luck from England, Justin! Stay focused.

    I'm on a weight loss journey too....

    Getting in the car and not having to have someone push the door closed on you is a massive victory. Being able to walk further also a victory. You are doing really well. I agree with the above posters that you are probably prone to water weight fluctuations a bit more than someone else might be. Not letting the numbers ruin your day is a great attitude to have. Keep up the great work.

    I look forward following your journey. We all need motivation to continue. Every part of my body hurts holding so much weight. I hope to find the same inspiration to change my life!
