Since this is fairly anonymous, I am going to brag: No one outside my family knows, but I've lost a little over 100 lbs. in 2012. I still have about that much to go, but it feels a lot better to be halfway there than not getting near the goal at all. It' also nice buying clothes that are five sizes smaller! Whee! I hope to have my "I made it" post in 2013 sometime.
FWIW, I didn't do anything special, like stomach banding or the like, which is what some folks think I did. Nope. Just eating less and exercising more. No miracles here.
