So, it's taken 2 years, but I have lost 50 lbs. Pretty proud of myself. I have gone from a jean size of 26 (pushing 28) down to a size 20. I can wear some size large shirts, but still have a bit of a belly so I usually wear XL...lol.

You are looking GREAT! You are getting close to that EXCITING time. As your weight goes down, sizes will go down much faster than they did at your higher weights. Congratulations on your ongoing dedicated efforts and marked success. Please share with us what you are doing and how you are staying on track.

It must be the Metformin, because I am not really doing anything different or really watching what I eat. I have just started to try and tone myself up as I have excess, hangy, wobbley skin...sigh...lol. My goal weight is 180, so 60 more pounds to go:) There is no way I could or would look good at the 140-150 that is suggested for my height...I would look sick!

What kind of toning are you doing? For some reason toning seems more groan-worthy to me than cardio lol.

Thanks everyone:) Haha...the toning right now consists of jack-knives, step aerobics, and mock push-ups (I use the counter), oh and trying to walk more!

I remember when I finally got down to size 20 after being around size 26/28, it was an amazing feeling, and I'm sure you know exactly how great it feels! Congratulations on losing 50 pounds! You look great!

Thanks everyone! Sushaari~ I would not think it would normally take anyone 2 years to lose 40 lbs. It's just how it happening for me, as I am not really following a diet plan. I found out I was insulin resistant 2.5 years ago and was put on Metformin, and I believe this is how I have lost the weight and why it has taken so long. And for you who mentioned my butt...I have a bubble butt and it always looks like that! I don't know if it is a good or bad thing...lol.

Congrats on the loss:) Two years and still hanging in there, working out, that is the way to do this. Looking forward to size 20. You look great.
