    Ahem - for the record - I understand as well ... just freakin' jealous. It's really quite that simple. LOL

    WOW! How exciting to be so close to your goal. Now, I'm getting excited, and I don't know why, because I'm nowhere near my goal, but it's still contagious. Keep up the good work! You look amazing!

    Way to go! You are doing a fantastic job. I am officially announcing that you are my personal yardstick, by which I will measure my own progress from this point forward. That being said, you better hurry up and reach goal so I can see if I wanna "up" my goal too.

    Wonder why I never realized that you were so tall. So, thats why you look so darn good at the weight you are now. Well, I think I agree with your doctor. I mean, look at you now, you look great.

    Some people keep telling me that I have gotten too skinny, but I'm really not. I have too many curves to be considered skinny & I also think I may look thinner because at 5'7 I usually always have on heels. I love my 3 inch wedges!

    Congrats! You look amazing and its funny how in your mind you have a set goal but then once you start losing you realize you may not need to lose at much as you thought. You look great at your current weight and honestly you probably will be pretty darn thin at 150..not that that is a bad thing. LOL!!

    I just think back to about a yr ago or so, when I was on Phen the 1st time and lost 25 lbs in about 6mths. I was so upset because of how slow it was going, but I lost 2 clothing sizes and looked great with just a 25lb loss. Now I can't wait to get to 40 then 50 or my goal of 100lbs off. But once I start losing more and see how I look, I may change my goal. I don't know yet.

    Anyway, You are an inspiration keep up the great work!!


    Everything happens for a reason

    Default 4 month update

    I had my 4 month weigh-in yesterday weighing in at 181.8. That is a loss of 40.2 lbs! I was very happy! My doctor did some mathematics and determined that I have lost 15% of my body weight. That was the most exciting part of my visit. He said he would keep giving me Phen until I stopped losing. I hope to be at goal by Thanksgiving.

    We had a long talk and he encouraged me to increase my goal weight. Based on the fact that I am 5'10", he begged me to change my goal weight from 150 to 160. Once I hit 176, I will no longer be "overweight" according to BMI. He said he would like to see me aim for a healthier weight. Not that 150 isn't healthy, but he thinks I am going to be satisfied once I get to 160. I talked with my WW instructor last night and she agreed. So, I have increased my goal weight by 10lbs. I still intend to aim for 150, but as far as "goals" go, I am trying for 160. Only 21.8 more lbs to go! I CAN DO THIS!!!
