Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou! :encore:

Yep...FB read it right! Thanks Girl! :high: On August 1st I weighted 340 pounds....today I weigh 239 pounds!!! 101 pounds GONE, GONE, GONE! Of course I weighed myself a couple times to make sure it wasn't a cruel joke the scale was playing on me...then I just looked at it and smiled. :D I still have a lot more that I want to accomplish, but I will! Yes! I will! I am now a weight that I have not been in over 20 years! I feel fantastic and it's only going to get better.

A huge part of my success is the wonderful support and friendships that I have here on 3FC. :hug:

I will take some progress pics soon....when I'm a little more prettied up than I am today. :p

You guys are the best!

I think I'm blushing...thank you for all the kind words. :o I have found inspiration from so many here that I'm thrilled I can provide some to others.

Thighs - I am an adoptive mother. :D I just thought that was a cool coincidence.... Anyway, no particular method.... I finally realized one day last summer that it was time to take care of me. I needed to lose weight and get healthy to be a better mom, better wife and happier person! I joined a gym, hired a personal trainer and completely changed my eating habits. I am a calorie counter. I eat about 1800 calories a day of healthy, smart choices. I track all my food on The Daily Plate. When I started out it was just about sticking w/in the calories. Once I started losing and feeling better I got smarter about my choices and really started to love the journey. I try new things, love foods I never thought I could love, pretty much cut out all processed stuff and empty calories, I focus on lean proteins, fruits, veggies, healthy fats. I drink very little caffeine - if I drink any it's iced tea. Lots of water and I do drink Crystal light. I exercise a lot and exercise hard. I love weight training. I work with a personal trainer 3x per week for an hour and I do cardio 7 days per week. I am living in a way that I can and will live for the rest of my life. Ok...I could go on and on about this. Can you tell I enjoy talking about it all? ;) Let me know if you have any other questions. You have been a great success as well...I'm sure you have lots of words of wisdom for your adoptive mom. :)

Thanks again! :high:
