After sitting on a stubborn and nasty plateau for a while, I have FINALLY cracked it and was down to 144 this morning putting me at an even 200 pounds lost!! How crazy is it to think that I actually used to carry 200 extra pounds around with me every step I took??

Amazing! And so inspirational! Everytime I think I can't do it, I think about all the people like you that worked their butts off (literally) to get where they are.

Thanks everyone! I will get some pics up when I get a sec. As far as how long it took me, a little less then 2 years. I started out making minor changes in April of 2010. I checked back and I hit 100 pounds down Feb 17th of last year. So almost exactly a year to lose another 100.

For the first 150 pounds there was no real plan. I ate less, ate better foods and exercised more. For the last 50 I have been counting calories. I exercise 7 days per week, most days twice per day.

That is ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS!!!!! Congratulations and what an inspiration!!! Can you tell me if you hit a lot of plateaus or weeks of up and down a lb (when you were not cheating and still exercising) and if so how you handled it? I am "there" and am very frustrated but don't want to lose my goal and you are truly truly proof it can be done!!!!!

If you have a relative who weighs around 200 pounds, you should try picking them up and seeing how far you can walk with them. My aunt did that when she lost all the weight and she actually broke down and cried with amazement about all the weight she lost.

I'm incredibly impressed! What a fantastic job. And while I've only lost 90 pounds, I know what you mean about having carried all that weight around every day, 24/7. I was carrying 2 sets of kettle bells that I bought into the house. Each box had a 5, 10, and 15 in it. So I was struggling to carry 60 pounds and kept thinking that I'd have to carry another whole set to match what i lost. Can't believe it.

You've done a fantastic job. Keep it up and never look back.

Wow is all I can say. I've looked at your before and after pics so many times trying to envision what my own 120 loss will feel like. I realized that I don't know me thin. I only know what I am now. I wonder what I'll look like. What excited me was your hands and wrists! I LOVE jewelry and I've never been able to wear bracelets due to my wrists being too big. I can NOT wait until my wrists shrink down so I can wear a 7 in. bracelet. That baby's gonna be 14kt gold! Hmms maybe I'll get a gold chain now and reward myself for ever 10 lbs lost with a tiny gold charm. Now that would be a fun thing to do. Thank you for getting my excitement level back up there where it was before. You look beautiful!

Thanks for the inspiration! I am getting really impatient and frustrated right now and thinking about "magical" cures to get to my goal weight that involve spending money (I don't have). Thanks for showing me it CAN be done the way you did it and the way I have been doing it!

Thanks again everyone - it is much appreciated! I do feel great - the one thing that I'm disappointed in is that I always told myself that I would actually be pretty if I lost weight and that hasn't happened. BUT I'm healthier, fitter, more confident, and lots of other pluses, so I don't need to be pretty!! :))
