Mini-Goals - photo: 141 lbs down :) ... so far...50 ish to go

03-28-2011, 08:43 PM
I am officially 141 lbs down in almost the past 9 months. I actually don't know exactly how much I weighed in the before pic (I suspect it was a little more than what my starting weight was for this weightloss journey). I'm not sure what my end goal will be at this point... around 50-60 lbs is what I am thinking right now. I love how much healthier I am feeling these days!!!

03-28-2011, 08:45 PM
Wonderful!!! Congratulations. I hope you're very proud and celebrating. Good luck with your continued journey.

You look absolutely radiant! Congratulations; your efforts have clearly paid off. :bravo:

You remind me a little bit of Elizabeth Montgomery during her "Bewitched" prime. (I mean that as high praise, by the way, because I thought she was gorgeous. :) )

03-28-2011, 10:59 PM
You look radiant. You were and are beautiful in both pictures, but now you look so thrilled! Way to go. You must be over the moon!

03-29-2011, 12:09 AM look amazing and of course, we all want to know: 141 lbs in less than a year? How?

03-29-2011, 12:59 AM
that is fantastic! congratulations and you look great! :)

Thanks so much, everyone!!! I have lost it all through diet changes. I am a calorie counter. I have stuck to 1200-1600 calories a day, every day (without cheating) since July 1st of 2010. I really didn't do any exercising until very recently. I am adding in walking and some core and toning exercises. The only 2 "cheat" days I have allowed myself in the past 9 months are Thanksgiving day and Christmas day. It has been very hard not to cheat at all other than that, but it is SO worth it to feel the way I do now. I calorie cycle so I try to do about 1200 one day then 1400 the next then 1600 the next and then I repeat. Good luck to everyone on your weight loss journey!! Thanks so much for your kind comments!!

03-29-2011, 06:27 AM
You are looking amazing! I really don't see where the 50 more pounds will come from though!

03-29-2011, 06:59 AM
Great job!!!

03-29-2011, 07:50 AM

Lauralyn - that is sweet of you to say. I am very tall so there is a lot of surface area for that 50 lbs to come from :) haha

THIS^^ made me smile. Thanks Southernbelle, I'm sure this will help many people to realize that you don't have to go through DRASTIC measures to lose weight and get healthy. It's as simple as this! to convince my eldest daughter!:p
