    I lost 102 pounds over the last 2 yrs and I am at my last 30/35 pounds...just bought a ballet barre to set up in my home for stretching, squatting etc...do not think Martha Graham company will be calling anytime soon...found that if I got rid of my fat clothes and bought smaller things, I am additionally motivated to stay on the plan...I love clothes so having a pair of the perfect silk pants that still do not fit is a wonderful negative to positive reinforcment for me...still scared, especially when someone asks, 'where did you go?", but compared to all I have had to deal with, this is gravy...sorry food association as usual...reduced portions by 1/3 and eat foods other than veggies, etc. in only handful portions...drink 10 glasses of water a day and excercise every other day...need the day to recover...any additional suggestions would be appreciated...have a high school reunion in May and want to float into the restaurant...and have the 'you cant have me' attitude with the man/boy who tortured me in high school...revenge is sweet (oh no, food again)...best of luck to all of you and continue to try to be healthy...big hugs, Jackie
