Just over a year after my surgery I have reached my goal! I am officially half of my starting weight. I do think I'm going to try to lose another 15 lbs, but woohoo!

The not so good news, I've been sick for the last 10 days and that's the only reason I am down as much as I am in this two week period (9 lbs), and I fully expect a small bounce back once I feel better, but for now, I want to enjoy this moment as much as I can.

As expected, I had a bit of a bounce back once I started feeling better. I've also decided to officially lower my goal from 167 to 150.

Has anyone else noticed how much different 5 or 10 lbs is close to goal compared to early on? Assuming I stick to 150, my BMI will be right in the middle of the "normal" range 21.5. I may get half way there and change my mind depending on how my weight settles. Right now my shoulders, collar bones, etc... are extremely bony - as is my butt. However, my belly and thighs still have jiggle and fat.

facing the same issue here. I'm around 160 pounds with BMI just below 22 and still have fat around my belly and mid section. I may try weight training just to build abdominal muscle to help reduce the fat in that particular area.
