One of these days I'll write the story part up but for now here's the pics! The before pic is from 10 years ago. It's a first date pic so there's a whole set my sweetie will never let me get rid of. The current pic is at the beach in the fall.

Believe me Chicks - if I can do it after being overweight to obese since I was 7, anyone can!

This is the closest I've come to writing my "story" (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/south-beach-diet/152988-one-whole-year-really.html)

Thanks everyone :) I tend to avoid pictures because I always have a silly expression on my face but I really appreciated and used all the photos and stories for motivation so want to give back. With all your encouragement I'll work on a story this weekend.

3FC is a key part of my success! Not sure I could have done it without all of you!

Thanks Jenn :) I feel great and that is such an unexpected gift. I felt so old, never had enough energy, couldn't walk up an incline without heavy breathing. Now I can keep up with my very fit and active DD. Changing my diet has really done wonders for my attitude too, an extra bonus.

Reeses - I lost the weight with a combination of South Beach Diet and calorie counting. South Beach really helped get my cravings under control and get me on track with healthier choices and calorie counting kept me from going overboard. I also really worked at getting more exercise in. I bought a pedometer and used it to hold myself accountable. It's a complete lifestyle change for me and I love it :)

Leitner - thanks :)

You already are a success. You've made the decision to make yourself a priority. 18 lbs down is no small accomplishment. You're right, you can do this!
Thanks for the smile this morning :)
