Finally! I'm so proud of myself that I didn't give up. I kept on trucking and made it through the other side. I've lost five pounds. Whoo hoo! I reduced my calories a little and tried to stay at the low end of my range if not under a bit. I increased my activity and water. In the past, I would have given up weeks ago. But I've gotten to the point where I can't give up anymore. I'm tired of losing weight I've already lost numerous times. Giving up and binging doesn't get me anywhere. In a year, I need to be able to look for at least a part time job and I can't do that unless I've lost enough weight to be able to walk around.
Bad news is that the bathing suit bottom didn't fit. They are sending me the largest bottom they have. I am hoping that will work. If not, I'll have to see if I can order some men's bathing trunks.
