06-15-2011, 10:45 AM
Congratulations!!! You are a real inspiration to those of us just starting out on our journey :)

06-15-2011, 10:51 AM
:congrat: Yes, running is AWESOME!:carrot: :dancer: :carrot:

06-15-2011, 10:53 AM
You look fantastic! Congrats! I can't wait to say I'm down a good number like that!

Have you thought about Jillian Michaels 30 day shred? Many swear by it toning your body amazingly. I am using it, and I'm losing some weight, mostly inches and gaining muscle! I love it! Maybe it could help for your thighs? Even fit people say ti works well for them. Just a thought!

06-15-2011, 10:55 AM
thank you so much, im so glad. i know that ALL of you are capable. and that makes me excited for whats in store for you !
and believe me, your compliments are not wasted here ! unfortunately, i dont feel as good about my weight as i probably should.

@ DCchick- mhm, LOVE running ;]

06-15-2011, 10:58 AM
thanks a ton ! and i have heard excellent things about Jillian Michaels programs, but i have yet to try them. i think ill give it a whirl, thanks !
and youre already so close ! dont lose that confidence.

06-15-2011, 11:01 AM
what's mhm? I still feel like im too big to start running. the only time i tried is when i got down to about 200lbs and even then i was AWFUL at it lol!!

Do you lift at all? I know squats, lunges, leg extensions, etc will all help you tighten up your legs and really wont add bulk unless youre seriously weightlifting, etc.

06-15-2011, 11:05 AM
DCChick, in the June runners DO IT thread thingy there's a post for beginners abotu running. And it made A LOT of sense to me. Sorry for hijacking your amazing weight loss thread tomtom lol. If i find the link I'm sending it DC! Everyone should read it.

Also tomtom here is a link for JM 30 day shred, if you can get up and try it out. See if it makes you sweat if it doesn't- I'll do level 1 2 times today! THAT IS HARD FOR ME. You will sweat lol!

http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/UgpuDex8Iuo/ Do you have dumbbells? That's all yu really need, not even need but at yer low weight I'd use em, could try it without though! Let me know I'm excited to see what you think!

06-15-2011, 11:06 AM
WTG nice work!

06-15-2011, 11:06 AM
DC- here yu go! Needless to say I wont be running for a while. Not that it is bad, lol just read this if yu can! http://www.leighpeele.com/running-for-weight-loss

Oh geeze I'm all over the place! I'm sorry lol. Also tomtom if you decide to start shredding, there is a thread I could link you to. Most started only 3 or 4 days ago I think? Anyways, okay I'm done! Yay congrats on the weight loss once again!

06-15-2011, 11:14 AM

Awesome, thanks!!

06-15-2011, 11:21 AM
wow. thank you so much guys. youre so helpful ! :]

@ DCchick- start out slow. i used to be a TERRIBLE runner, but it gets easier every day that you practice, like most things do.
and @ ButterCup85- thanks ! im looking into the JM thing right now. lol, i hope i can handle it..but no, i dont have dumbells, thats a good idea !
andw e can sharethe thread ;]

06-15-2011, 11:25 AM
Tomtom- it really looks easier than it is. I hope you try it. If you even have cans or water botles something it helps a lot more. Unfortunately, I use 6.6lb weights- it's all I have! But, I have to imagine the squats and squatting punches will help a lot. And level 2 and 3 only get harder. I really think you may liek the surprise you find in your legs if you try it. You can also google results of real people- they're there. The toning aspect seems really great. I'm going to sue it through my whole weight loss and maybe after. Switching up levels once I can of course!

If it doesn't work for you for some reason, I'm sure more people will have suggestions coming!!

06-15-2011, 11:27 AM
ButterCup85- actually, i just did it for like, 50 seconds, and i can already feel it lol ! i rly appreciate you sharing. i looked up "real people results", and youre right. its definitely affective ! ill give ya leg update in a few days, ha.

06-15-2011, 11:31 AM
I can't wait! I'm really excited to see if you get sore from it haha. A bit morbid maybe? lol

This is a small thread a few of us are using atm to track our progress and motivate one another. Fell free to join or pop in and update me there incase I miss this! I can't wait to be the smaller girl after weighing 230 and just wanting to TONE! Lol, sooo exciting! http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/fitness-videos/235213-looking-30-day-shred-buddy.html

You look amazing, thighs included! I run also, and for some thigh toning I do some of my favorite moves from the Windor Pilates from years ago, just basic simple floor work, squats, and round house kicks, although I still have some jiggle on my thighs, so if it is working, I will have to lose the flab to have any toning show....sigh.

06-19-2011, 02:36 AM
Pilates helps thighs shrink!

06-21-2011, 11:10 PM
tomtom you are such an inspiration!!!! I was just thinking about thigh toning too..

06-21-2011, 11:15 PM
Awesome job, seriously! Also, heck yeah to the running. I started running at my highest weight too, and it's really helped. You are an inspiration. Great job, again!!!

06-21-2011, 11:16 PM
Wow! You look great. I dont know anyone who doesnt think their thighs need toning. LOL! I thought yours looked awesome! I can only hope mine look that good one day! Congrats on your loss!

06-22-2011, 06:09 AM

tomtom, this might sound odd but not only do you look awesome in your after pictures but I can't wait to look like that when I'm 206 lbs.

03-26-2013, 07:31 AM
Congratulations :-) I'm so inspired and impressed. I'm a similar he might and want yo get down to a similar weight. You look so fantastic it really wants to make me keep going. Any tips? I'm really struggling to get myself to ignore ,ore unhealthy foods.

what's mhm? I still feel like im too big to start running. the only time i tried is when i got down to about 200lbs and even then i was AWFUL at it lol!!

Have you heard of couch 2 5k? Its a running programme designed For those who are unfit and takes you from running nothing to 5k in 9 weeks. You alternate running and walking at first which helps a lot. Might be worth a Google anyway.

03-27-2013, 08:33 PM
Way to go! You look great!

I wish I had some tips regarding toning up your thighs, but I could use a tip or two myself. Lol.

05-04-2013, 10:09 PM
congratulations! you look absolutely amazing!!
