No doubt your weigh-in will be good. You are definitely on a roll but you are also doing a lot of hard work and keeping yourself on the straight and narrow. Wish your consistency would rub off on me. Good luck for tomorrow Raven.

I'll post some pictures on out Facebook so you can see. I'm kinda proud...and tired. Gotta go. Bluegrass is calling. See ya. Have a Healthy Day !

Hey Ohio! How're things going? It "looks" like you're staying strong and powering through :)and how's the exercising going?

biscottibody59 on 05/17/2013:
Good going on the continued loss!

I don't know if you saw the forum entry on BMI, but don't feel like other people's comments about being too skinny are warranted. It's your body of course, but when everyone and their dog are either obese or overweight, being slim and trim can be like being the oddball when in reality it's just plain healthy!

I've heard plenty of stories where a person loses weight, feels good and they achieve the best health, BMI and fitness of their life and they get nothing but grief from old friends. In turn, over time they may actually lose those friends, sadly.
