Weigh in #8........

Today I weighed in again.  Let me tell you, getting used to the fact that we loose slower at this point is hard but when you look at the overall picture and how much weight you lost you don't feel as bad about it.  I've looked at other's results and see that they lost a lot in the beginning and a little after that so I'm on track.  I heard this in the beginning.  You've heard it from many people that you will reach a plateau or loose smaller amounts of weight but you don't think it will happen to you.  I'm okay with that now.  I think it's finally sinking in. 

There is a praise/accomplishment.  As I'm on the chiropractors table on my back - he wants me to bring my knees up to my abdomen as far as I can.  I'm never usually able to do so.  Last friday I could lift them slightly to help him.  Today I was able to do it on my own!!!  One small step in my road to health!!

So today I lost another 2 lbs!

weight in the beginning         338 lbs
weight last week                    295 lbs
weight lost this week                2 lbs
Today's weight                        293 lbs
Total weight loss                     45 lbs
lbs left for goal                          5 lbs
weeks left to reach goal            2 lbs

Thank you so much for all the encouragement!!
