I hit the ones today. Goodness knows if it’ll stay that way but until now I’ve never hit the ones on the current journey. I guess anything is possible at this point!

Wow wow, I am so impressed!
I have tears in my eyes, though I don't know you at all.

Your journey has inspired me, like so many others.

I am working my way down from out of control eating, 210 pounds, probably diabetic but refuse to go to doctors --- to a completely different place.

You're pictures are beautiful , and I am so so impressed by your degree.

May you continue doing great things, in great health - until 120!

So I totally meant it as a joke but I just realized I’m nearing 120 myself for the first time in a decade. 120 kilograms, that is, but it’s the number that would put my BMI under 40 so it’s very meaningful for me. (Well, nearing is a relative term - but I’m now 15 pounds away, whereas last August I was 95 pounds away, so it feels like a realistic possibility.)

That’s amazing! Kol hakavod! I think that meaningful is anything that we feel it is. It’s interesting how many constructs there are. While I am happy to go down in weight, amd even bmi, ( which is seriously a construct- don’t get me started even in bmi)

Way more important to me than weight or bmi is feeling good and having recovered from the diabetes and being the energizer bunny, energy wise. Also that I’m maintaining this large loss and even slowly losing more! But still, a milestone is a milestone however we count it!

Staying the course is so important! Also you must be so tall if you’re 120 kg at 40 bmi. I’m 90 kg and 37! See what I mean about meaningful? If bmi was it, I’d just be disappointed!

And totally agree that the numbers are pretty meaningless. Being able to fit comfortably in my car, not having to worry about breaking a chair, being able to comfortably take care of my bodily needs - infinitely more important than numbers. The number on the scale didn’t go down between January and March and that was totally fine with me as I was comfortable with where I was and happy to let my body consolidate and get used to the changes that had happened. Also happy to have started moving down again.

Andrea, if you are comfortable I would live to see updated photos when you can. I always like seeing how much you have changed and your smile.

I don’t write or focus heavily on weightloss because most of the time it seems glacial. I used to be a compulsive overweight. It was my only goal. My starting weight was 315 and I’m five one. My goal was reversing my type two and eye damage, not losing weight, which I had lost hope about anyways.

Yesterday was my three year anniversary at work and this morning, I weighed in at 198.4.

When I realized that there was a milestone, I tried to look back in my records from my scale but apparently did not keep track before 2019.

I went into my pictures and found a pic from My first day of training July 21/18.

I think of my weightloss after the first ten months as insignificant but looking at this I realize that I’ve lost 41.6 pounds since 3 years ago this week.

I had a conversation with a friend yesterday who was frustrated with her scale progress. My overwhelming response is that if you keep doing it, it will happen! This is proof positive of that.

The scale is a tool. One tool. Time doesn’t matter when you feel good and you are doing this forever.

How do you view the scale?
