As long as it Takes......

    I remember when I started losing weight... I would sit and calculate how long it would take me to lose the 75-80 kilos that needed to go. I figured that at a kilo a week, it would take up to two years. Of course, I didn't realize back then that as I lost, weekly loss would slow down, as I would not be shlepping around all that excess baggage! Today I am about 3 to 3-1/2 years into my weight-loss journey, and as I near my final goal, I'm lucky if I loose a half kilo weekly! 
      But it no longer matters. As long as I am going in the direction I want, the time required is no longer that important to me. WHY????
     Because I am having so much fun FUN FUN! Losing weight is INVIGORATING! Losing weight is empowering! It really is!

My weight has been stable which makes me glad, too. I'm not as thin as I had hoped, but I've kept it off for 3 years.
