Less of me, less of you?

As of today, I have officially lost 15 pounds! Of course, I still have much more to lose, but I'm still pleased with my slightly smaller self. My next goal is another ten pounds by Valentine's Day, which is also when I'm tentatively planning to confess just how much I need to lose overall.

For anyone who is interested in joining me in getting healthier in 2008, I've thrown out a challenge at Fight the Fluffy.

That's a lot of weight! And you haven't really kvetched much about denying yourself--AND this is over the fattening holiday season. You RAWK, Jen on the Edge!

Melissa: Oh, I bitched and moaned plenty the first two weeks, but now my body has adjusted to eating less. I actually feel sick if I eat too much now -- sort of like I had gastric bypass, only without the surgery.

I haven't totally denied myself. I still have chocolate and other fun foods, just not daily and not in large amounts.

I'm so impressed Jen. Seriously. That is a lot of weight you've shed already. No matter what you have left. You need to give yourself a bick pat on the shoulder!

Congrats on the 15 pounds! In case you really think 15 pounds isn't a lot, check this out. First, 15 pounds = 52,500 calories! Second, you've lost three of these: 5 pounds of fat!
