Ho- Lee- Crap!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have about the same amount to lose as you did, and I've already lost 50lbs...but OMG you look INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!
Can you give me some advice? What sorts of foods worked best to keep you full, what kinds of excersizes did you do?
Again, congrats...you look absolutely fantastic!
I ate all foods. I ate fast food often(not salads, but hamburgers and picking off of the husband's fries). I had chocolate and cake occassionally (at parties/holidays/vacation/or when I was just wanting it and had the calories for it). There were some healthy foods. I enjoy salads, but I'm not sure you can consider them healthy with the stuff that I throw in them. For me, it was all about the keeping my count under 1500 calories a day. It does turn out to be a good amount of food at the end of a day. I also have a cheat day (usually Saturday) where I eat WHATEVER I want and how ever much of it I want.
As for exercise, I do 3-5x's a week on the treadmill/eliptical. I also do weights 2-3x's a week.
Good luck to you! 50lbs is an excellent start. I was there last April and felt so great hitting that marker. Keep it up!
WOW... How proud and envious I am of you. I am around 100 pounds overweight myself. My weight gain started after high school when I became more sedentary. I really need to get on the stick and lose the weight so I'll be around to see my kids grow up.
Again... So proud of you. :)
Aww, thanks girl. It is rough with a kid as far as getting time for anything but. I often used my son as inspiration for exercising and it helped, but I only have one and lots more time on my hands.
Thank you again.
yes! a million kudos, a BILLION! this gives me so much hope and is really keeping me strong! beautiful woman, mother and wife! go you! ^^
Thank you for sharing this. I find this inspiring.
You are truely amazing!
Aww, thank you. Where have you been? LOL
The incredible shrinking woman! You are such an inspiration love.
Wow, what an inspiration. I remember many of these pictures from last spring when I was really active on the 100lbstolose community. It makes me so sad to see where I could have been had I kept everything up and not fallen off the wagon in the fall. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures. You are absolutely beautiful.
Thank you! I saw people who were where I wanted to be when I was starting out and kept wondering if I could really do it. Now, I wonder if I could really keep it off. If I could do this, than I think anybody can. Good luck!

Thanks Aunt Diane. Love you!
that's awesome girl! i'm so proud of you! it's def good to know for after the baby's born!
It is possible, girl. You are hot right now..what are you talking about? LOL
HOLY FREAKING SH*T!! Sorry for the potty mouth but HOLY SH*T! Extremely inspirational post you have here. I am at 70lbs down and struggling to keep the progress going but this is going to help. There is certainly no reason why I cant drop another 20 lbs by my birthday!! Thank you for sharing this amazing journey you have experienced and yeah, I think I will add you! lol
Umm, you are welcome! LOL But really, thank you for stopping by and commenting...even though this comment is months after you made yours.
I surfed over to you from the 042009 community and WOW, you are truly amazing! You look absolutely fabulous and happy! What an inspiring journey.
Oh wow...thanks! However, this pregnancy is definitely causing more weight gain than just baby. It is my last pregnancy and I will enjoy it and return to the gym after she is born. Thank you for stopping by and if you want to add me, that would be cool as well. I'm always up for people with things in common (like having babies the same age).
I'm also here from 042009. I was just here to let you know that I'd added you and ask to be added back, but after reading the entry--WOW! I feel like I know you a little better now. Thank you so much for sharing those wonderful pictures, and that piece of yourself. Very cool.
