I've lost 20 pounds!

Hello, I just thought I would touch base with people out there and let you know that I've had a little success, so far so good. I started April 30th 2020 and have lost just over 20 pounds. I'm eating around 1600 calories a day and I weigh myself every two weeks. There are times when I eaten more or less than 1600 calories but I'm fairly consistent. Almost every day I have 2 boiled eggs and a berry smoothie with banana and spinach. I eat chicken and will drink 1 cup of 1% milk for protein. I also have ice cream. I get the individual kind so I can count the calories. They are usually around 80 to 100 calories. I find that preparing food and eating it is so much more enjoyable, now that I control myself. I still have 60 to 70 pounds to lose. The important thing is to be consistent and patient!
