This morning I weighed in at 192 lbs.

Oh my!!!

38 lbs lost and 18 to go until I reach the goal. People have noticed.

It's amazing considering I very rarely feel like I'm depriving myself -- I eat every time I feel like it, pretty much. I just don't eat three donuts and seven cookies and half a box of Cheez-Its. My favorite snack is about 1/2 cup black beans with some pico de gallo on top. I do like to get a mini-cupcake every once in a while but they're very satisfying.

Congrats! You are awesome!

I'm stuck at 142. 10 pounds, and I'll be happy. My issue is toning, though. Know any low-impact toning exercises I could do from bed (or did I ask last time, lol - you know my Lupus brain...)?

Still, wow. You rock :)

Toning is definitely a challenge -- especially the low-impact part of it, when your whole body is on fire!! Do you think it would be too much to lift two-pound weights? I've got some three-pound dumbbells that I've been using; my doc doesn't want me doing much in the way of weight training because of the potential for injury with hypermobile joints and the fibro. (I've started saying "the fibro" like some people say "the sugar" for diabetes. heh.)

Or, maybe use something like a bottle of water - that way you could empty some out if it's too heavy or fill it if you've got more energy.

Exactly! And since I'm post-surgery, everything I do has to be very low impact, at least until August (and I can't do anything that makes me dizzy, which takes out a LOT of options...) But maybe lifting two-pound weights from bed is a good idea, or the water bottle idea - that's great, too. Now, to tone my stomach, and I'd be happy - but considering where my wounds are, that won't happen for a while.

Haha, "the Fibro." I say "the Lupus" a lot, so, I get it :)
