Starting weight on 6/14/06: 211
Current weight as of 10/13/06: 191
This is an average of 5 pounds per month. I think it's ideal: not too fast, but not so slow that I get discouraged.
I am shooting for a goal weight of 130, which is another 61 pounds away. It will probably take me at least another year to reach this goal. This might seem like a long time to those who are in a hurry to lose their weight, but when I consider the fact that it took me 15 years to accumulate this much weight, I feel that one year is just a blink of an eye.
I hope Seth doesn't get tired of this forum before I reach my goal weight. But even if this forum goes away, I will continue to use SLD to get my weight down, and life will go on.
