Extreme Weight Loss: Losing 50% of My Body Weight

I've finally reached the goal of losing 50% of my body weight. That is major for me. There are 6lbs hanging on that have got to go for me to reach my goal weight. At 164lbs. down, I've lost more than many people even weigh. Soon, I'll have lost more than I weigh!

At the doctor's last week, for the first time in many years, I didn't have high blood pressure. I'm officially off meds for that, and the weight loss has helped my reflux immensely as well. My knees are better, too. My print out from the doctor didn't list obese as a diagnosis, either. That hasn't happened in many, many years. I've been overweight most of my life, except for when I was really young and a year or two in high school before I became the "fat kid" again from meds and a battle with depression. The doctor had to double check that I hadn't had weight loss surgery she didn't know about. Nope, no surgery.
