I didn't even know you were dieting. I guess I don't read the correct threads to have known that, but I offer hearty congratulations! I have probably used every diet known to mankind! My doctor has now accepted that my weight varies as much as people's opinions. (Sorry...I can't help it if it is unhealthy to be a yo yo dieter. It is better than remaining permanently obese. And don't tell me I'd be better off obese. I don't care to be, thank you.) When I put on weight and show up in my doctor's office he sighs and says it isn't good for my blood pressure, and so forth...then says, "The only good news is that you'll take it off again".

I wish you great luck in taking off the rest of your weight and then keeping your weight off!!!

(((StephanieLynn)))

StephanieLynn, congratulations! :appl: :appl: :appl:

Pat yourself on the back for your incredible achievement, and let your success energize you as you head towards your ultimate goal!

Its like removing a 50-pound backpack that you've been wearing 24/7. :shock:

Your body (and, especially, your knees) must be very thankful.

I'm sure your success will help motivate others to stay the course.

Just wanted to say thank you for all the supportive words and I hadn't thought about a bling present! Any reason for some new jewels right? :D

Diamondrnglover!

You get back here and delete that silly heading-banging-against-the-wall image!

I don't want to see that kind of attitude! :angryfire:

You lost 30 pounds! That's wonderful!

Take pride in your accomplishment, realize that you've got the inner strength and determination to tackle and defeat the enemy (i.e., excess weight)!

Focus on your final destination to stay on course and reach it.

But don't downplay your accomplishments and successes to-date.

Your response to StephanieLynn did not include 'yea but ...'.

Don't do that to yourself.

The 'head-banging' might have been a joke, and I certainly hope it was, but had to respond in case you were serious.

I don't like to see people beat themselves up.

Congratulations to you, diamondrnglover, you've done a great job!

Hugs

:wavey:

StephanieLynn, I forgot to ask a question in my earlier post. Do you my sharing how long it took to reach your 50 pound goal? :confused:
I've been stuck on a plateau for awhile so was curious. Ha! I need some inspiration! I am so happy for your progress because I know how hard it is! If you don't want to share then I certainly understand. So proud of your accomplishment! :wavey:

Don't mind at all. I started two weeks before Halloween. My clean eating has been pretty consistent but some days I fall off the exercise wagon. So my basic plan is every other day I do weights with dumb bells and then I run a mile on the treadmill. On cardio days I run faster or more distance or I'll do incline or sprints on the treadmill. The exercise really gets me though, some days I just want to nap since my son is napping at that time.

Press on and maybe change up your routine a little and you can break the plateau, I know it's so frustrating!! I find that if I up my good fat intake (avocado, nuts, grass fed butter, coconut oil) it somehow inspires my body to drop the weight and keep going. You got this :wavey:
