I’m not sure where the end number will net me, if it will be 75 pounds or a bit more or less, but I’m now feeling pretty good about the HOW and the way I’m going it, and it being both sustainable and successful. I’ve recently been more drawn to the newer more flexible paleo kinds of approaches (Chris Kresser in particular) where recommendations are just a template and the point is to experiment and see what works best for you as an individual – this is a much better approach for me than some blanket recommendation that is issued the same for everyone. I particularly like the lifestyle elements being incorporated – sleep, stress reduction, exercise, pleasure… this is really where I aspire to be, melding all these healthy things, with an eating plan that makes me feel good, with foods I enjoy, and one that keeps me at a healthy weight without going crazy.

I’m not sure what the final weight will be, I don’t have a “goal” number in mind, I do know I want to be a size that is in the regular stores, and not the very top one (so I would be able to try on two sizes and see what fits me better). Mainly I know I can eat this way forever, and at a certain point my body will decide it’s done losing weight, and then, voila, I’ll be at my “goal” I guess I’m more than halfway there in terms of weight, and probably 1/3 there in terms of time (I assume it will take much longer to lose the second half)
I just changed this goal, I had “Lose 50 pounds” as my goal, but I need to lose ANOTHER 50, I’ve already lost 25.
I want full credit for the full amount, even if the 75 number is much scarier.
