I wont update my weight ticker or graph because it's not my "official" weigh-in day... but today I reached the 200 pound weight loss mark! It will almost certainly be more than that come weigh-in day, so in case I ever want to know the exact day I hit the 200 pound mark, it's today!
It was a bit less than 8 months ago since I hit my first 100 pounds. 238 days ago. That's an average of 0.42 pounds weight loss per day since then.
It's been over 20 years since I've been this light. Long enough that I honestly don't remember what it's like to have this much mobility. It's all new to me! Every day is like Christmas!
I'd like to thank Dr. McDougall, who's made a life work out of educating anyone who will listen to the wonders and simplicity of nutritional truth.
I'd like to thank Jeff Novick, who's explanation of calorie density gave me the most valuable tool I have in my weight-loss arsenal.
I'd like to thank some Star McDougallers who have been of particular inspiration to me, among whom are Mike Teehan, katydid, and frozenveg, as well as other forum members whom I've found to be sources of inspiration and support, among whom I can quickly list are Kirk, pinkrose, gramma jackie, chile, Debbie, Rosie, and everyone else who has ever offered their support along my journey.
200 down, another 100 to go!
