I have lost 22 pounds since November 29, 2009. Although ecstatic about the loss, I realize this is just a start, and I still have major weight to loose.
I have had no desserts, no in-between meal snacks, and no snacks at the movies. My evening snack is limited to one apple which is significantly less than I used to inhale in the evening while watching TV, and / or using the computer.
On December 31, 2009, I was only 1 pound heavier than on December 31 last year. Although disappointed that I did not loose major weight during all of 2009, I am very pleased about loosing 22 pounds in the last 33 days of the year.
Now I have to maintain focus, and continue a steady, consistent weight loss. I will be happy with an additional loss of 100 pounds in 2010, and 40 pounds or so in 2011.
