I've officially crossed the 300 lb. barrier, as well as the 50 lb. weight loss barrier. Having lost another 3.4 pounds for a total of 52.9 pounds lost overall (the scale this morning read 297), I'm feeling quite accomplished. I have 5 more weeks to complete the program, and then start the year-long "maintenance" program where I intend to keep mostly to the same diet I've been on so far, to lose the remainder of Mariah (who, at this point, now weighs 87 pounds). My next goal is to get to 275.
