Just wanted to shout from the top of the world that today I weigh 149lbs :)
15 months ago I weighed 298lbs- I have lost 50% of my bodyweight- :woohoo:
I lost through a low carb diet and sheer grit and determination and the friendship and advice given here at 3FC.
Thank you !

Wow! 15 months, too - that's amazing! I'm worried my weight loss will stall as I get closer to goal but you kept that 10lb/mo average. I am so inspired by those of you that have such quick progress. It keeps me focused on being serious about this.

Congratulations on acheiving your goal!! Happy Dance!

Wow!!!!!!!!! Congratualtions! You are such an inspiration! I can't wait to be writing my own post like this next year.

03-18-2012, 01:12 PM
Nice to revisit this one :)
almost a year on I'm still in maintenance - I've kept within a few pounds of my original goal. This in itself is something Ive never been able to achieve. My life is the same, but soo different. Someone actually told me I had a gorgeous body - I had to look around to find who they were talking to ! Lol !
I won't pretend it has been an easy road, because it hasn't- self doubt, the reaction of some others and life in general has sometimes got in the way. But I'm a much happier person, and find I'm nicer to boot- something about understanding that the road of any persons life is never easy, but can be made easier by someone being nice.
Thanks for all the lovely, heart warming comments.x

Thanks for the update! Congratulations on maintenance!!! What an inspiration!!!! Are you still low carb?

03-18-2012, 01:37 PM
You're amazing!

03-18-2012, 02:04 PM
Way to goal!!! Great job. Reading stories like yours makes me want to keep pushing when I feel like giving up!

03-18-2012, 02:16 PM
That is amazing!! And inspiring!! You look great!!

03-18-2012, 06:05 PM
Wow, that's impressive. Congratulations.

Losing the weight is hard enough, but IMO maintenance is even harder. The fact that you have been able to maintain is a tremendous accomplishment.

Congrats! You look AMAZING!

Puneri - No didn't lose on IP, just good old diet designed by me :)
Looking forward to spending my tax rebate in Florida this summer !! Haha, clothes are causing me a great deal of expense!
My 16 year old beautiful, slim DD was discussing my birthday gifts, and she proudly told my husband that there were no worries for her to buy me something beautiful to wear because she knew I was just one size bigger than her !!!!!!!! Oh YESSSSSsssssss :carrot:

Congratulations on losing it all and NOT finding it again, starbrite! People like you are my heroes - I want to be like you someday!
