Both pictures are during college formals :D
I am usually around 159, but when i started college I went up to around 167 pounds.
I started to diet and exercise after being fed up with constantly being embarrassed by some family members.
I am extremely happy at 125 but now I am motivated to reach 115-120 and I really want to be fit :))

Well done! :D you look amazing! And I LOVE the dress in your after shot :)

Can I ask what diet/exercise plan you follow? And how long it took you to reach Goal? Just cos I'm nosy haha.

Thank You Both!!
and its not nosy! :hug:

I started working out dieting right after Christmas and reached 125 around June-6 months.

I workout everyday for at least one hour. My favorite machine is the stair climber but i have started to go on the elliptical.

For me, it is more important that I change what I ate since before I usually bought chips or something from a fast food place.

I work at a front desk that is open 24hrs, therefore my sleep patter could be strange-such as staying up till 6am waking up at 1pm then eating breakfast, working out, lunch then sleep. So, i may not eat a full three meals in a day or I would if I was awake longer.

for breakfast i usually eat: egg whites with a chopped veggies/toast or banana/rice cake or peanut butter/cottage cheese w. a fruit

snacks(which i started carrying to campus)-less than a handful of almonds and chocolate skim milk or fruit sometimes a nutrition bar or jello and applesauce

lunch is usually -tuna(with lettuce and a bit of dressing)or wheat waffle w. peanut butter or omelets with chicken and veggie

dinner is similar to the snacks since i usually go to sleep early

Congratulations!! I'm super motivated by your progress, especially since we have almost the exact same stats. I have 20 more lbs to go, and I can't wait to go into maintenance!

Off-topic but, where did you get the white dress from? It's so pretty and flattering!

Great job. How long do you work out on the stair climber? There is one at my gym, I just cant get the hang of it lol. Maybe I am just clumsy??

I'm super motivated by your success, we're the same height and I'm currently at the weight you were at your heaviest. Now I know that it's possible!!
