I am down 2 more pounds this morning. I'm very pleased. I can see a difference in my belly.

Yesterday 156 and today 157, but that's rounding down yesterday (156.4) and up today (156.6) so essentially no change.

I've lost between 25-30 lbs in the last year, and that's with quite a few stops and starts and inconsistency. I'm starting to get to a place where I can be consistent and starting to feel consistently stronger and more active. It's very hard to do when you can't give it 100% of your focus and just have to shift things in your lifestyle gradually and deal with chronic health issues. But I feel like I will lose all the weight I gained starting with my first hospitalization in 2014 by the end of this year. Even my slip ups are not really slip ups, they just are slight deviations, like once a week having a higher calorie day or having a piece of cake or something very occasionally. I actually have gone down a size in my clothes, but I can't replace them all yet, so I'm just using belts, etc., to make things fit for a bit. One more size and I can shop in normal department stores again. Sometimes I can right now with some stores that go up to size 16, but one more size and I can shop pretty much anywhere because most places (aside from like high fashion) go up to a 14. I want to get down to a size 6 again, which is what I was in 2014. I'm getting there. It's kind of happening more consistently and faster now that I've moved and some things are better for me in other ways. It's a lot easier to get exercise where I live now. My daily walking mileage has gone from 3 miles to 5-6 miles a day, just with natural activity, not counting actual working out.

Right now my next goal is getting under 200. I'm really close, and I'm hoping by end of May to make it happen. It should happen before then but I'm giving myself some padding.

Nice progress, Seesaw. Hope you get to "onederland" soon!

156 this morning, rounded up. Good place to be in case I have a bit of Easter candy...

Over 1000 extra calories today. I might spike, but I have been steady around or just under 157, so I should stabilize below 158.

Boom - 159. I rounded up, but it's in the danger zone. I didn't start today off very well either. Should start paddling on Friday; shoulder is pretty well healed and rehab has gone well (surgery in January). When I start putting in long paddles regularly, it gets a lot easier to lose and/or maintain.

I've been struggling with a migraine since Friday, but it finally seems to be gone. Have to try and get in a workout today. I let myself eat more of a maintenance diet this weekend versus a deficit. And that's okay. Gotta be balanced and not go overboard. I hate trying to lose weight while managing an eating disorder, but c'est la vie. Feeling pretty good otherwise. Have a workout planned at some point today. And also, I am able to run at a 12 minute mile pace on the treadmill now. 5 years ago I was running a 7:45 mile, but that's okay. I'll get back there. I'm pretty impressed with myself that, even though my weight it still high, my cardio health and my endurance are still quite good. I know I can bring this back.

Thanks for the support.

@UpDownAround just keep monitoring it. And yes, regular, low-key activity is a great way to maintain. Paddling sounds fun! I should try it.

My paddling isn't all that low key, though it might be until I feel confident about pushing it with the repaired shoulder. I often did 3 hour non stop paddles last year. Sometimes as much as 5, but with short break or 2.

Oh well, I may not understand what you mean by paddling. But definitely take it easy with your shoulder until you're ready.
