It occurred to me that since I normally hang out in one tiny area of the world here http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/chicks-up-challenge/195540-march-weight-loss-challenge.html that I completely forgot to put up the big old post here to celebrate!

Now I'm figuring out maintenance with the help of some awesome cyber friends (you "Challenge" girls rock!), lots of trial and error and a few good books. I'm also working towards a two year degree to get my personal trainer certification. What a difference a year makes!

These are the official pics as I like to refer to them. May 14, 2009 at 223lbs and December 23, 2009 at 133lbs.

Once again, thanks everyone, it's so nice to see everyone working towards the same thing. And it does feel really good to be here. Lots of goals to work on still and that keeps me going, it just isn't about the scale number now, it's about running farther, jumping higher ;)

I would be lying if I said maintenance was easy but I'm more than willing to take the time to figure it out and make this the last time. Good luck to everyone, it can totally be done!

Tamara - That was sweet and oddly enough, I'm in Alberta too!

03-25-2010, 05:25 PM
wow! how did you do it so quickly? i can see that you are a runner, tell me thats what helped it drop off so fast...i just took up running :-) im only just walk/jogging at this point, but my goal is to be able to run 10k in 45 mins by my birthday (december 15)

Tummy Girl
03-26-2010, 01:03 PM
Actually, it may not be the running, lol. I lift weights, lots of them and really heavy ones, life a "man" as my dear husband says.

But I think it's everything, the running, the weights, I did P90X as well and mainly the consistency of everything over the months to get me where I am. At this point I'm pretty sure that most exercise plans work if they make you sweat and you do them long enough.

And thanks for the blog love, it is really helping me with maintenance and figuring out this whole journey. It's a labor of love and nice to hear that it's a good read :)

But truly, thanks for the kind words, it's still hard some days for the brain to catch up with the body.

It's so amazing to be anyone's inspiration after seeing so many inspirational people here. Now having made it through 6 months of maintenance it's starting to feel like this is the way it will always be.

I really hope that with all the experience I will be able to empathize with people who are seeking out trainers. I always felt so judged and misunderstood so here's hoping.

Thanks again everybody.

Your pictures are really something. Wow.....I went on your giggly bits website and I would love to hear more about how your health has been improved. My main goal with this journey is to improve my health and it encourages me to hear how other people did it. I know it is not only the weight loss because it is possible to lose weight in an unhealthy way. I know I need to eat the foods my body needs, stay away from the sugar and white flour it doesn't need and MOVE my body. At 43, I am starting to feel aches and pains and am on three RX drugs....want to fix that with diet and exercise.

Oh....and a smaller waist would really be great:)

TummyGirl, would love, love, love to hear your thoughts....

TummyGirl, would love, love, love to hear your thoughts....

Health wise I went from a resting pulse of 82 and now it's 49, which is really low for anyone let alone a former very unhealthy person, I was stage 1 hypertensive at 30, with a BP of 150/90, other than that, I had avoided the doctor like the plague for years and I was also pre-diabetic but never went back to follow up.

Now I'm 110/65, and no health issues in site. I think that's so true about what you said. It's all about not sprinting towards every degenerative disease but going the other way. And the smaller waist is nice too ;)

I think that's what I got for treating my body like a garbage disposal. It's pretty remarkable how fast you can heal though. That's what I found amazing. The body is an incredible thing for sure.
