    178.8 :^) had a long, long stall there at 181 but I upped my daily walk from 4 miles to 5 and things are starting to move again. I've lost almost 52 pounds, that's almost halfway! people are starting to notice too.

    I can't get to the gym for a while because one of my kids is sick and I can't bring her into the child care room like that. I did wake up to 174.4 today though so I think the 7 miles and yoga marathon paid off after all. I'll just have to hit the weights hard when my kids improve.

    Holy cow! You are doing some serious shrinking! I'm so envious, but happy for you just the same!

    Thanks :^) I got some serious goals to meet; 150 by xmas!

    I'm thinking right now how STRONG and sprightly i feel lately, a few people have said to me that I look like a "new person" or a "totally different person" and I feel that way too - I can run up stairs, 2 at a time even, no more schlumping around going from one seat to another. When I go for my nightly walk I want to RUN, only my lack of proper breast support keeps me from running all the time! I can do 5 miles no problem, only time keeps me from walking longer. I have so much energy I really feel like I am in the best shape of my life. I know by spring I am going to be even stronger and more flexible and I am having so much excitement thinking of what it will be like to feel EVEN BETTER than I do now!

    My therapist brought up, rather cynically "oh but then you have to keep it off" - honestly, I have NO fear of keeping it off. None. If I can happily live like this and lose 2 pounds a week every week, and i KNOW I will never add grains and sugar back into my diet (not one iota of them, no interest in those foods) I worry about how I will stop losing, not about how not to gain it back. I am reading, "Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms" by Datis Kharrazian (recommended from the Healthy Skeptic blog) and I am convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt that I must avoid any and all gluten for the rest of my life in order to preserve (what's left of ) my thyroid and my health. So no chance of pizza or a box of Little Debbie cakes in my future. I will eat the way I am eating now (100% primal) for the rest of my life. I might add a few hundred more calories of meat and veg when I reach my goal weight but I will always be 100/0, never 80/20. I may add an occasional glass of white wine here and there but that would be it. I feel so great, I can't even explain. I really am becoming a different person.
