Wow Rosie, now's that's somthing to really be proud of!. At one time in my life I weighed 214 lbs. I'm down to 150 now but the last 18 has been in the past month when I was in the hospital and than got that awful flu. I thought I would immediately gain it back but I actually lost 5 more lbs. I havn't done anything diferent but the doctor did put me on a couple different meds so that my account for the last 5. I'm not holding my breath though.I'm only 5'2 so I still could loose anoter 20 lbs and would be happy. Being 50 years old I don't need to be a string bean but like you said it's hard to carry that extra weight. Me with my breathing problems makes it even harder.
40 lbs in a year is a really good amount off weight. That means you are adjusting your habits and you will have a better chance of keeping it off. What a christmas gift to yourself. Can't think of a better gift than being as healthy as possible.
