100 lb. Club - 1 year...82lbs!!!

View Full Version : 1 year...82lbs!!!

07-18-2011, 02:03 AM
So July 13th makes one year of me overhauling my lifestyle. I count calories, eliminated most simple carbs, only eat the complex ones, and work out 6 days a week. I stepped on the scale on the anniversary and weighed 188lbs. So 82lbs gone! DH and I went on date night and I got him to take some pics.

I want to let you all know that I am NOT wearing Spanx or anything like that under the dress. You can see an area of flab above the bellybutton area that is the BANE of my existance, but I tell ya, I feel super! I'm going to attach a before pic as well.

When I hit goal, I'll write the long story...
He He!!

Congrats, you look great!
I am so excited, I have deemed today "my special day" and find this site is great to lurk and comment in! I hit my goal weight today, actually just under that. Very excited and now need to figure what the next one will be. I am down a total of 109 lbs since last March and have just hit 100 lbs off since I am on Medifast.
I hope everyone here reaches the success they are looking for!

How gorgeous are you! And I totally love the shoes. Congrats on an amazing accomplishment! (Although there ain't nothin' wrong with some Spanx either =)

07-18-2011, 02:20 PM
Thanks chickies! I agree there is nothing wrong with Spanx, but I wanted to show that the amount of loose flab I have in the problem area is really insignificant when you look at the whole picture. I agree my legs are awesome, but that is typical for us apple shaped gals! Ha! So many newbies come on here with the "loose skin" fears and I think it is a crazy reason to keep you from getting healthy.

I'm hoping my loose flab and belly jelly will go away with the last 20lbs, but if it doesn't, I think I'm willing to live with it, and not seek out a surgeon. When I was 205-210, I looked BAD. I thought I'd have to have surgery, but with my new running and further weight loss, it is getting better and better. :) So I concur with the maintainers, don't make a judgement on how you'll look until you get to your goal.

I can' wait to get there.

wow!! good job! I'm just starting my 100lb to lose journey..you are an inspiration! :)

07-18-2011, 03:03 PM
You're STUNNING!! Great job, keep it up!!

07-18-2011, 03:19 PM
Hey you look amazing! You give me so much hope!!!! You totally are an inspiration, I fell off the wagon this weekend and feeling all gross, seeing where you before and after in 1 year has totally motivated me again! Thank you!

07-18-2011, 03:28 PM
:congrat: You look fantabulous! And that dress is super cute.

Can I just say how much I love this part of your post? As a student, I hear a lot of negative body comments from gorgeous women in their early 20s. It's so much a part of culture that even my 7YO was really upset when the "weight guesser" at the amusement park pegged her as 20 pounds over what she was. (He was really just making sure she would get the prize, but she was totally not happy, even though she has no worries as of yet that she actually looks fat [she's a normal, healthy weight, thank goodness].) THANK YOU for acknowledging that no one has to wait for perfection to appreciate their bodies. It's way awesome.
