Thank you! I honestly just barely feel average now so, THANK YOU! I am sure you will look wonderful! The inner glow alone from accomplishing something so important to us changes how others see us!

You're welcome and thank you for taking time to comment. I appreciate your compliments but, trust me, I do have 30 pounds to still go! (it's a girl thing and clothes can hide so much!)

I keep hearing that. I really am not sure how it happened my arms were the size of a small thigh when I started losing (just at 19") now they are 11.25" (inches). I am still working to have better tone but, overall, I am very happy.

Thanks! I believe it was a combination of the diet, my past history of working out and, I have a large bone structure (just a hair under 7 inches on my wrist which is bony). My BMI says I am still overweight and I am still not at a "Great" body fat but, my body fat is about 28%. I would like to get down to about 20%.

Thank you! I didn't realize how much older the weight was making me. The funny thing is I now have forehead wrinkles where I didn't when I was fatter!

Thank you, Coqui! I wish I could give you something more than I did on the forum chat. I really didn't do anything special for the arms.

YOU are so special! Thanks! I love pin up gals and burlesque art. I smile every time I see your avatar! I have a few that are my "inspiration". I want to wear a "pinup" girl look for a halloween costume next year!

Mahalo to you! I very much enjoy and gain support from all the Ideal Protein group. I just feel I am giving back what I have been given. I hope you, Jules, and Linden have a chance to encourage each other in the next few months! I wonder if you are all going to be on the same Island?

Thank you!






THANK YOU! I very much appreciate all the compliments and feedback. At present, I am just maintaining my loss. Beginning January I will be back to the program and taking off the last of the unnecessary pounds. I will post more pictures as I meet goals along the way.

Happy Holidays to everyone!
