Mini-Goals - Close to my goal, after coming a long way!

07-13-2010, 04:54 PM
Im back to the forum after a few years. I never posted much before, but thought I would start again. Ive really gotten my act together and lost some weight since then!

My goal is 120-125ish and maintain. My highest weight ever was 186. In the last year calorie counting has been how I have lost weight along with excercising more!

Progress pics:
Terribly unflattering picture from a higher weight, although I think the photo makes it look worse:
The far right was May 18.

Haha the tattoo was one of the fake sleeves, kind of like printed pantyhose, that I was modeling in the gas station in the first picture.
And thanks for the congrats! Its been hard, but gets easier as time goes on! :)

i'm betting we're even the same age lol i'm wondering if you could tell me exacly what you did to lose the weight?

07-14-2010, 12:33 PM
Thanks so much for your kind words everyone! And yes I had to do a big hair change to go with it :)

jackiedavis, Ive done on and off for years since 186, but what has really kicked my butt into shape was Zumba, running, and CALORIE COUNTING! I count everything! I have the Lose It application on my phone and if it goes into my mouth I count the calories, and stay under the reccommended calories a day for a 2 lb loss a week. It doesnt always make me lose 2 lbs a week, but the number they give you is a calorie defecit that should make you lose 2 lbs a week. If you need any help feel free to message me! Oh and Im 23!

Thanks again everyone!
