I just did some quick maths. Even if you 'only' lose 200g per week from now on you'll be at goal in 40 weeks. Sounds a long time, doesn't it? Well, what were you doing a year ago? If you'd started on a healthy plan then of listening to your body and losing 'only' 200g per week you would have been at goal several months ago! Slow weight loss may seem daunting, but let's face it: you want to be thin for life, not just for a couple of weeks and gain it all back again. Visualise yourself in several years time, still healthy and thin, enjoying your permanent healthy lifestyle. That's how you'll feel in a year, in two years, in five years... even in ten years. It kind of puts that 40 weeks into perspective, doesn't it!
Good luck! You're doing really well so far. Stick at it and you'll be at goal before you know it.
