I didn't know these images would be so small. If you click on the images, they will enlarge.

33726
273lbs on a 5'2 frame!!!

33727

33728

33729
150lbs

My weight loss is NOT a result of surgery or any fad diets. I workout EVERYDAY and I cut back on carbs and sugar. So really my weight loss is a result of patience, consistency and FAITH!

For more photos my name on myspace is I_Lost_122lbs. I'm a newbie so the forum won't allow me to post links.

Thank you all for the wonderful compliements! I hope my photos are inspiration to anyone out there on a weight loss journey!

Hi Everyone,

I have struggled with weight for years and years. No matter what, nothing seemed to work. I never had enough discipline to make dieting stick and I had no time for exercise. My weight ballooned to 275 pounds two years ago and I finally had enough.

Last year, I started tracking everything I ate and any exercise I did. I used an online internal system I developed to do so. My weight has come down 30 pounds and my gym time has been steadily increasing!

In September, I started using Disciplanner to track my weight and have never looked back!

Thank you for the compliment. Often times I tend to just do lean protein and veggies for lunch and dinner. I shop at Costco/Sam's Club for the big resealable bags of frozen chicken breasts. This allows me to take out just what I need...reseal the bag...and put the rest back in the freezer. I prefer buying frozen meat/protein because it lasts longer.

Also, I am a "single lady" so the big freezer bags allow me to take out two or three chicken breasts just for me. Instead of cooking a big meal and being tempted with leftovers.

There are other sources of frozen protein/meat I purchase in Costco's freezer section such as turkey burgers, individually wrapped salmon and other fish, scallops and shrimp. This gives me variety and again allows me to take out a portion size that is just enough for me.

I've heard some folks say that fresh meats and produce are better for you...but buying a bunch of fresh meat and procduce for just once person isn't good for my budget. And quite frankly I've relied on Costco's frozen meat/fish section for much of my weight loss...and I'm still breathing and kicking!

Also, the only things I drink are water, occasional coffee and decaf tea. I don't waste calories on things like soda or juices (even orange juice). My thing is if I'm gonna consume a lot of calories its gonna be on something I can chew not drink!

The only sweetner I use is Splenda. I buy it in the little packets (again from Costco) and use no more than 3 a day (not everyday, just if I do have something that requires sweetening.)

Near the bags of salad in the grocery store, there are bags of alreadychopped/shredded red and white cabbage and broccoli slaw. I cook often cook this in a skillet, season with salt-free seasoning and have it with a protein/meat.

I have to admitt I'm really not a committed low carber. I guess I have been able to control my weight because I only allow myself carbs/sugar if I am out on a date, eating out or at a family event.

Life is good. What has worked for me is eating what I want, just less of it. And if I do go a little overboard, I am always willing to put in extra work at the gym.

Those supposed calorie counters on the cardio machines at my gym always give me a little reality check though...once I realized the effort it takes to burn 500 calories on a cardio machine...I've become a lot more conscious about what and how much of what I allow in my body.

Donít be under the illusion that progress can be instant, but with the right information and understanding is the start to becoming healthy. Build your will power and become strong minded, designing your personal exercise plan added with patience you will see positive changes. We all love to look good but to truly feel good that's the real difference, with a Strong mind set it will keep you on track for the long term. Who doesn't love to be complemented and praised by our family, friends and partners? But before we can expect others to acknowledge our hard work and achievements we need to give ourselves the ongoing positive reinforcement to keep at it no matter how slow the results maybe. Always keep your eyes and thoughts on the end result of where you wish to be. Do not set your self a time frame, just keep fixed on the end result and how it will bring positiveness and happiness to your life.

My weight loss is NOT a result of surgery or any fad diets. I workout EVERYDAY and I cut back on carbs and sugar. So really my weight loss is a result of patience, consistency and FAITH!

For more photos my name on myspace is I_Lost_122lbs. I'm a newbie so the forum won't allow me to post links.

Thank you all for the wonderful compliements! I hope my photos are inspiration to anyone out there on a weight loss journey!

WOW caroline,this is AMAZING and so inspiring.
and im glad you emphasized the word FAITH because i know personally,for myself without help from a higher source,i know i wouldnt have been able 2 even lose the 16lbs i just lost.
im so proud of you because it does take HARD WORK ,CONSISTENCY AND TONS OF PATIENCE.
god bless you sis:hug:
