This is me in 2001 at 290 lbs. This was before I lost my first round of weight and got down to 195 lbs. (Weight Watchers)

This was me on September 6th 2005. I had gained back a few pounds and I was up to 222.5. But fortunately I managed to keep most of the weight off by running (a lot).

This is me today. I have lost a total of 122 lbs. The last 54.5 lbs have been lost by tracking calories with Fitday.


My goal is 165 lbs and 10% body fat. I have 3 pounds to go.

This is going to be the year of personal bests for my running. I am planning to qualify for the Boston Marathon this year (in May), and then run a 50 miler in July. Then I'll be signing up for Ironman Canada 2007 at the end of August, and then training my butt off to get my swimming and biking up to par with my running.

Thanks. I know I don't really need to lose another pound, but I've had the number 165 in my head for a long time, and that's the finish line for me. Its only 3 pounds, and I'll be there within 2 weeks.

Both times I lost weight with Weight Watchers I stopped before I got to my goal weight, and both times I put the weight back on. I need to actually get to that number so I'll psychologically have a target that I can stick to for maintenance.

Wow, you look GREAT! I am definitely a fan of those triathlons, in my younger years I used to do a local one each year. Good luck!

My hero!!! I'm going to start training for Olympic length triathlon (I'll leave the Ironman/woman to you superheros) I think having exercise goals makes weight loss that bit easier, as you have something else to think about, works for me anyhoo!!!!!

wow.. you look hot! :devil: water water... need to drink some water. COLD water. Seriously, you look really great. Did you always want to run or did it develop as you lost the weight? At what weight did you start running? Your before shots remind me of my husband.. he is 270lbs.. but 5'4"

Did you always want to run or did it develop as you lost the weight? At what weight did you start running?

In high school, I had a teacher who had done Ironman (Mr Watson). I always liked to watch Ironman on TV, and I always thought that one day I would 'finish' an Ironman. But to heck with finishing it, I want to race it now. (well, not to win, but I'd love to qualify for the world championships in Hawaii)

I was 240 pounds when I first started running (January 2002). I started out with a "learn to run" clinic, and built up from there. The first day of the "learn to run" clinic you walk for 4.5 minutes and run for 30 seconds, and repeat that 10 times (50 minutes of walk/run, but mostly walk). Then every week they add 30 seconds onto the running and take 30 seconds off the walking, until you are running 10k non-stop.
