S/C/G: HW- 242 Restart SW:166 7/24/14

Height: a little over 5'2

Default

How much have you lost? 65lbs
How old were you when you lost the weight? 26. 27 now with restart.
How long were you at your high weight? I always have been overweight as a child, gained over time though I finally "stopped" at 180-190 and maintained that until I got to 226lbs. 3-4 years of being 226.
Are you still losing weight? Yes, about 10lbs to go for now,.
How long did it take you to lose the weight? Less than a year to get to 170 then bounced between 170 to 180 for almost a year. Started up again 1/21/13 at 180.
Did you have weight loss surgery? No.
Do you have pregnancy stretch marks? No, I have never been pregnant.
Do you have weight gain stretch marks? Yes, starting right under the breasts all over the stomach, sides and all around the back, inner thighs, and on the back of the knees.
If you are in maintenance, how long have you been maintaining? Not yet. Though, I sort of maintained 170-180 for almost a year before my new restart.

In the beginning, I exercised with weights, resistance bands, balance balls and my elliptical trainer but I stopped that over a year ago due to an injury. I am well enough to start again on a consistent basis, I cannot wait!

As for my lower stomach, it is wrinkly and a bit droopy, it does not fold over or anything like that so no rash, etc.





Updated new pics in swimwear at 157-159, my lowest weight so far. Still no working out yet!!!
