Trying to keep going when the going slows down!

I've dropped over 25% of my body weight in the past 310 days - trying to keep that in mind as I am tempted to skip workouts, eat bad foods, or let up in any way. Because I need to drop ANOTHER 20% of my starting weight before I am in a "healthy" range. That will be a much slower slog than the past several months - it might take a year or more to get it done. So I try to focus on workouts that I enjoy (regular brisk walks instead of boring cardio machines, body weight workouts that do not require special equipment or a trip to a gym) and so far this has kept me having fun with the process.

    Good luck! Remember, the time will pass anyway, you might as well be fit and happy at the end of it :)

    Congrats on your great successs. You have a very helpful perspective. It took me 6 months to lose my first 50, 8 months to lose my second 50, and 14 months to lose my last 50.
